    Default Doctors Shoot Down Cris Cyborg From Attempting Cut to 135lbs; UFC Future in Jeopardy?

    http://www.mmaweekly.com/doctors-sho...eopardy?vbox=1



    If Cris “Cyborg” Santos and Ronda Rousey ever meet in the UFC, it will have to be at 145lbs or it won’t be happening at all.

    Santos met with her doctors recently including a visit to the cardiologist to see about a possible move down to 135lbs, so that she could eventually and hopefully meet Rousey inside the cage to settle their long standing differences.

    Members of Cris Cyborg’s camp confirmed to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday that she visited with her heart doctor and was told that a cut to 135lbs would just not be safe based on her personal physical health. Her cardiologist stated emphatically that he would not sign off on a move down a weight class based on her current health.

    The dangers to her body could also prohibit Santos from carrying a child later in life, and according to her camp, that was a risk the former Strikeforce champion was unwilling to make for any fight.

    Santos is currently still sitting out awaiting the time in which she can re-apply for a fight license after being suspended for a year following a positive test for a banned substance in California. When she is eligible to return, the question now remains where she will fight at and who will it be against?

    The most logical fight for Santos would be a match-up with Rousey in the UFC, if both ladies are moved over to the promotion.

    The only problem is it now appears the UFC will only be focusing on the women’s bantamweight division at 135lbs where Rousey currently competes.

    If only the 135lb fighters are brought over, that could leave Santos without a home to fight in under the Zuffa umbrella, and a super fight with Rousey off the table.
    Clever strategy on the part of Cyborg: Get a medical professional to bolster your position that a fight closer to 145 lbs is in your best interest, medically speaking, of course.

    We heard from her cardiologist, but what does her endocrinologist have to say about the effects of PED usage on the ability to bear children later in life.

    So her doctor told her she can't trim off any of that muscle mass....? She's just making herself look like a fool.

    Her heart is likely the size of Secretariat's due to all the steroid use. Also, the doctor told her that she can't cut to 135 AND continue to do steroids. We all know which option she chose.

    Actually this is in part good news for the UFC, because they need Rousey to keep winning. And Santos is a huge threat for her. So the fight is not happening, and Rousey will continue to do armbars left and right to everyone else.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    She'll have to cut muscle. Thats the only way. Let Ronda get some wins then we see the cyborg fight. Hopefully.
