Report: Ronda Rousey Accuses Cris “Cyborg” of Prolonged Steroid Abuse, Says Invicta FC Champ Bad For Women’s MMA
By FCF Staff
As the MMA world continues to wait and see whether a super-fight between Invicta FC champ Cris “Cyborg” Justino and UFC champion Ronda Rousey will take place, the war of words between the two goes on.
Speculation about a Rousey-”Cyborg” bout has reached new levels in recent weeks, since the latter relayed her intention to drop down from featherweight to bantamweight in the coming months. Rousey (9-0) recently spoke with Yahoo Sports about the possibility of facing Justino, and here is some of what the UFC bantamweight champ had to say about the highly regarded fighter:
“I’ve said before, I don’t care if she’s injecting horse semen into her eyeballs, I’ll fight her, but that’s just my personal decision,” Rousey said about Justino, who tested positive for anabolic steroids in 2011 and was stripped of the Strikeforce featherweight belt . “But I can’t make a decision for the whole division. I can’t say it’s the right thing. This girl has been on steroids for so long and [has been] injecting herself for so long that she’s not even a woman anymore. She’s an ‘it.’ It’s not good for the women’s division. It’s not good at all.”
Justino reportedly admitted to Yahoo Sports in April that she utilized steroids in 2011, but claimed she did so for weight loss and that doing so was a “mistake.”
Since returning to MMA action in 2013, “Cyborg” has scored wins over Fiona Muxlow and Marloes Coenen, and currently carries a record of 12-1, with 1 no contest.
