Ronda Rousey has no respect for a 'cheater' like Cyborg Santos

This is her serious face. If you see it, it's already too late.
This is her serious face. If you see it, it's already too late.

If you were surprised to hear that former Strikeforce women's champion Cristiane Santos was popped for steroids, then you're functioning with less than half a brain.

That's according to female fighting sensation Ronda Rousey, who has done such a good job of promoting herself and staying in the spotlight, even Chael Sonnen is at home taking notes.

That includes her recent appearance on "The MMA Show with Mauro Ranallo," where she got a lil' "Rowdy" when it came to the subject of "Cyborg's" failed drug test.

Here's what she said:

"I feel like anyone with half a brain isn’t surprised. I have mixed emotions of Cyborg being caught cheating because I know everyone knew she was cheating and I wanted to make an example of her because you don’t need to take steroids to win. I think her getting caught is a great thing too. I don’t have the least bit respect for her because I always knew she was a cheater, and now everyone else knows too. If she ever comes back to fight again, she won’t be the same beast she was before. She might even try doing different things like HGH that are harder to get caught for. Who knows if Strikeforce even wants her back?"

Rousey (4-0) burst onto the scene with four straight armbar finishes and has yet to see any bout go longer than 49 seconds. In her spare time, she makes a mockery of the male ego by no-selling balls to the stomach.

The former Olympian will try to prove she can walk the walk in less than two months at the Strikeforce event booked for March 3, 2012, in Columbus Ohio, opposite women's 135-pound champion Miesha Tate.

And if Cyborg ever makes her way back to Strikeforce following her suspension, expect an epic grudge match to be waiting for her.
