Cris Cyborg Is Just All Roids, Says Ronda Rousey

Ronda Jean Rousey, American mixed martial artist, has slammed Cris Justino and her past with performance enhancing drugs.

Ronda Rousey blasted ability of Justino, the Brazilian mixed martial artist, and added she is a product of performance enhancing drugs. Ronda commented that Justino (nickname Cyborg) is one of those people where it’s all just roids and muscle and no technique. Rousey went on to remark that Justino is actually afraid of facing her.

Cris Justino tested positive for an anabolic steroid and the result of her win over Hiroko Yamanaka on December 17th, 2011 was changed to a no-contest. It was announced by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) that the license of Cris Cyborg was suspended and she was fined $2,500 as the result of a positive test for a banned substance. The drug test of the he former Strikeforce Women’s Featherweight Champion came back positive for Stanozolol metabolites.

At that time, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker responded that we have a consistent and strong stance against any use of performance enhancing drugs. Coker added we also have a long history of supporting effective drug testing of athletes by authorized regulatory bodies and therefore, we will closely monitor the matter and will work with the California State Athletic Commission regarding any information we may be asked to provide.

Since her pro debut in 2005, Justino (13-1, 1 NC) has not lost. The 29-year-old Justino is presently the Invicta FC 145-pound champion and former Strikeforce champ in FC 145-pound class.

A fight between Rousey and Justono seems inevitable but only of the Brazilian mixed martial artist can make 135 pounds. In July, Justino will defend her 145-pound belt at Invicta FC 13. If Justino manages to have a bout at 135 against Rousey, this would be the biggest fight in women’s MMA history.

Presently, Rousey (11-0) is the undisputed best women’s fighter in the world and she has finished all but one of her fights in the first round itself. Rousey’s last two bouts ended in a combined 30 seconds. A win over Cris Justino would help cement the legacy of Rousey as the greatest women’s fighter of all time.

Rousey, the consensus #1 pound-for-pound female MMA fighter in the world, is listed by Fight Matrix as the #1 Current Pound for Pound Women’s MMA Fighter, the #1 Current Women’s MMA Bantamweight Fighter, and the #1 Women’s MMA Fighter of all time. Ronda Rousey has the distinction of being the first and current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion. Rousey is undefeated in mixed martial arts and became the first woman from the United States to earn an Olympic medal in Judo at the Beijing Summer Olympics in 2008. The Ultimate Fighting Championship announced in November 2012 that Rousey had become the first female fighter to sign with the UFC. In 2014, Rousey appeared in the film The Expendables 3 and she has roles in the 2015 film Furious 7 and the upcoming Entourage. At WrestleMania 31, her first professional wrestling started when she and Furious 7 co-star The Rock confronted Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
