Cris Cyborg Responds To Ronda Rousey, Says UFC Champ’s Words ‘Mean Nothing’ To Her

She who fires first, might not always fire last.

After Ronda Rousey recently took a shot at Cris Cyborg, the Invicta FC featherweight champion has decided to respond.

For those unfamiliar with the situation, Rousey recently criticized almost every aspect of Cyborg’s technique and even accused the Brazilian of using performance-enhancing drugs.

“And the way that she is on the ground, it’s absolute horrendous. And her distance is absolute horrendous,” Rousey said. “The only thing that she has is pace and power, and I have pace, precision and power.”

Cyborg tested positive for stanozolol in 2011 and recently spoke to MMAFighting about her ongoing feud with Rousey.

“What she says means nothing to me,” Cyborg said. “A person is visiting my country and trying to defame me with my fans to get attention shows you how uneducated she is. She’s a low-level person. She feels she has to step on someone in order to rise.”

While Rousey accused Cyborg of ducking a fight with her and resigning from the UFC immediately after the organization decided to implement out-of-competition drug testing, her rival says this wasn’t the case.

“As always, (Rousey) is trying to pick her next opponent. She is running away from me and asking to fight Bethe (Correia),” she said. “If she was so sure about everything she says, she would have already accepted to fight me like she accepted to fight Gina Carano at any weight, fight Cain Velasquez, (Floyd) Mayweather. Grow up, Ronda.”
