I get the feeling that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey isn't a fan of Cristiane Justino, who like the "Rowdy" judoka, cut her teeth in the Strikeforce promotion a few years back. But unlike the champ, "Cyborg" has yet to cross over to the Octagon.
If and when she does, Rousey tells Bleacher Report it will end badly.
"She's a fraud and she's terrible for the sport. And if they are going to bring her into the UFC, it is my responsibility to put her away so she can't ruin women's MMA again. But I don't think she has the right to compete. Coming in on PEDs in MMA is the equivalent of walking in there with a weapon. What's going to ruin the sport is if someone dies in there, and the other person tests positive for steroids. Then we're going to have our first homicide. Has anyone thought about that? Has anyone thought about that being more important than the numbers on one fucking card? She's not thinking about every single woman that comes after her. About having people think she's the best in the world, when in reality she's just a fucking chemistry project. This sport deserves a champion that is way better than her. And if she tries to undo all the work I have done, then I'm going to try and kill her with my bare hands. And the only person that's going to stop me is going to be the referee."
Justino, who signed with Invicta FC after failing a post-fight drug test back in 2012, has been flirting with a drop to 135 pounds after cleaning house in the featherweight division. Unfortunately, an untimely injury put an end to her bantamweight debut, at least for now.
Unless they want to meet somewhere in the middle (via The Underground):
"Hahaha, you say you want to try and kill me in the cage? but you are scared about 10 lbs? lets meet in the middle at 140lbs, I'm tired of the bully talking. Cat Zingano if you are looking for a training partner let me know, I can not wait to see you shut this girls mouth."
Rousey fights Cat Zingano at the UFC 184 pay-per-view (PPV) event next February in Las Vegas, Nevada (details).
And then? She has some "important decisions to make."
