Ronda Rousey’s mother, AnnMaria De Mars, once again commented on her daughter’s rivalry with Invicta FC Featherweight Champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino.
During a recent appearance on Submission Radio, which you can listen to above, De Mars spoke about the Rousey-Cyborg beef.
“I think the first time Ronda gets her hands on her she’s going to knock her down and break her arm,” said De Mars. “The reason she won’t [go up in weight] apparently is because Cris Cyborg has missed weight multiple times. So if you have her fight at 140, she’s going to show up at 145 or 150. So that’s the first thing. If she’s gonna miss 135, she can at least give Ronda 10 percent of the purse.”
She continued, “And then secondly, she has kind of an inflated record, because if you look back at some of her matches, she’s fought woman who were 125 pounds and she’s 160. You know that’s like Ronda fighting her little sister and her saying ‘oh look at me, I’m so dominant’. So I’m not impressed with her record, and of course failing the drug test thing. I almost feel like that’s sort of like when you get a DUI. That’s probably not the only time you were driving drunk. So I’d say her whole record is under suspicion; certainly the one match she got caught at is under suspicion – not suspicion, it’s proven.”
De Mars concluded, “And then there have been – you could look them up – several matches where she missed weight and was 20 pounds or more heavier than the other person. So under those conditions and going bragging [about] how dominant you are does not impress me. And the other thing is; I love Ronda, she’s a great person, she has many many wonderful qualities, but one thing about her is she holds a grudge, and she will break Cris Cyborg’s arm.”
