Cutting to 135 won't seem so bad after that.
Cyborg needs to take a few more fights.
Not many fighters come back from steroids to get immediate title shots.
I think it would be silly to reward that behaviour.
There is no doubt that Cyborg's career has spoken volumes for how she has earned this title shot as well as the position of being the best WMMA fighter. Cyborg was given the terms of the matchup by the champion, yet wants her own terms met when she is the challenger who has just come back from suspension.
Cyborg needs 1 or 2 fights before challenging again. There has to be some sort of repercussions.

I'm sure she could make 135, she just packed on too much muscle. It's not like she's very tall or wide or anything. Getting with Tito, I'm sure her career is going to go to shit now.
Match Cyborg up with Dolce and a better strength and conditioning coach. A coach that could get her leaner rather than bulkier.
