Ronda Rousey calls out Cris Cyborg, says "Come down to 135"Posted on August 19, 2012, 12:47 AM by Anton Gurevich
Fresh off her victory over Sarah Kaufman in San Diego, California, Ronda Rousey once again called out Cris "Cyborg" Santos to come down to 135lbs, in what would be the biggest fight in WMMA history.
Ronda Rousey submitted Kaufman via armbar in just 54 seconds, by this defending her Strikeforce Bantamweight title for the first time. Rousey is now 6-0 in her Mixed Martial Arts career, all victories via armbar.
Here's what "Rowdy" said post-fight at the Valley View Casino Center:
"I need to send out a challenge to Cyborg there. People want to see you have the first fair fight of your life. I'm the champion now.
The champ doesn't go to you. You go to the champ. Come down to 135 and let's settle this. If you still want to go out in the parking lot, my friend Russell brought my gloves, and I'm going to be there."
In her most recent appearance for Strikeforce, Santos defeated Hiroko Yamanaka at just sixteen seconds into the first round. However, on January 6th, 2012, Santos tested positive for anabolic steroid stanozolol. The fight with Yamanaka has been changed to a no contest, while Santos had her license suspended for one year and was fined $2,500.
