Ronda Rousey’s willingness to speak her mind is one of the reasons why the women’s bantamweight champion is as popular as she is.
Rousey added to that perception yesterday in Brazil as she spoke to media about Cris Cyborg. The UFC champion attacked the Invicta FC featherweight champion and said that Cyborg asked to be released from her UFC contact only to avoid random drug testing.
“I would fight her, but 24 hours after the announcement of out-of-competition drug testing, she asked to be released from the UFC,” Rousey said. “I’m under contract with the UFC, I can’t leave. She can come back whenever she wants, I’m here.”
“She was fighting, it was a while ago, and she just got dropped five times in a match. And really, to be honest, I haven’t been really too impressed with her actual skill set,” Rousey said. “It’s only her strength that she draws off.
“The reason why people dope is because they lack self-confidence. The reason why she was using steroids is because that girl does not believe that the best that she has is good enough, and that will always be there in her mind. And you know what, she’s right. The best that she has isn’t good enough, even on drugs.”
