Cyborg Threatens To Sue Ronda Rousey For Steroid Comments


UPDATE: Cyborg’s attorney and manager, George Prajin, recently took some time to elaborate on Cyborg possibly filing a lawsuit against Ronda Rousey. Read that story here: Cyborg’s Attorney Elaborates On Possible Lawsuit Against Ronda Rousey

While Ronda Rousey has pointed out her belief that Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino is on steroids many times in the past, apparently the comments she made about the Invicta FC Featherweight Champion in her home country of Brazil this past weekend was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

“I prefer [an opponent] who makes weight and doesn’t do drugs,” Rousey told Ariel Helwani after her 34-second knockout of Bethe Correia at UFC 190 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this past Saturday night.

Rousey continued, “The fight’s there for Cyborg. She can make 145 pumped full of steroids and she can move down [to 135] without them.”

Cyborg has since taken to social media to respond to Rousey, and instead of more fight-promoting trash-talk, this time the Invicta champion is talking about taking legal action.

“Ronda Rousey, you can not slander me with lies in the media,” wrote Cyborg on her official Twitter account. “My lawyer will call.”
