Cyborg is definitely edging towards that category IMHO. Hopefully she just stays quiet and focuses on testing clean and making weight.
It would be hard for me to imagine her getting an immediate shot at Ronda, considering the steroid suspension and past weight-cutting difficulties. I still expect her to successfully defeat a contender at 135 lbs before she's formally offered the Ronda fight.
Shit, if she pulls of the unlikely and beats Ronda, she could even market herself as a 2-division world champion. Let's see how this plays out.
I am excited for this fight. I, like you, would like to see rousey defend and cyborg fight 1 at 135, for their initial matchup. This would answer lots of questions. Can Cyborg make 135 while retaining her strength and stamina?
I also think it would add to the drama that would be Rousey vs Cyborg. I look forward to this matchup b/c I think Rousey owns her. I think she is too much of an athlete for santos. I hope we find out.
