Cris Cyborg: Ronda Rousey thinks Gina Carano is an easy fight
"I wasn’t surprised because I knew how tough is for Gina to go down to 135, so (this fight) would need to be a catchweight," Cyborg told MMAFighting.com.
"Gina Carano is a great athlete and I’d happy if she returns to MMA, doesn’t matter if it’s against Ronda. But she hasn’t fought since 2009. Her last fight was against me at Strikeforce, so I believe that Ronda thinks it’s such an easy fight that she would even move up. She knows that it would be different against me, especially because I already defeated Gina."
Cyborg didn’t make a prediction on who would have won a fight between Rousey and Carano, but believes that ring rust would be an important factor.
"They both are great athletes and have chances to win," she said, "but Gina Carano hasn’t fought for four years so she’s not in a good rhythm."
Cris Cyborg returns to action on March 28 in a muay thai title fight against Jorina Baars at Lion Fight in Las Vegas, Nev., but is confident that she will make her bantamweight debut in MMA this year.
"My focus now is in my 145-pound title fight at Lion Fight," Cyborg said. "I have many fights this year, and one of them will be at 135."
With a natural weight of 165 pounds, Cyborg has already changed her diet to make 135 and stay healthy to compete.
"People think that it’s just 10 pounds, but my normal weight is 165 pounds of muscle with 4% of body fat," she said. "Losing muscle is a hard job, but I’m working to lose weight and be prepared (to fight).
"Obviously, I’m changing my diet and training. Nothing is impossible for God. My job is to work hard and do my best, dedicate in training and in my new diet. The rest is consequence."
Anderson Silva Believes Dana White Owes The Fans Rousey vs. Cyborg
In an interview with Combate Silva put it as such:
“I believe this fight needs to happen. The Ronda is a great fighter. But Cris has 90 % chance of winning the round. She trains hard and has all the features and appropriate techniques to win the round. This fight needs to happen, because Dana White owes it to the audience; the UFC.”
I would imagine she dropped weight to fight at a more optimal weight class. If she avoided getting her ass beat by a cheater that's an added bonus.

Wow Rouseys got the bollocks to call out Cain, Floydmayweather, and Gina who won't come out of retirement to fight some brat. Basically people she'll never have to fight. Yet she won't address Cyborg.
