Don Frye wants Ronda Rousey to 'shut the hell up,' be a real fighter and fight Cris Cyborg

New, comments

"The Predator" isn't pulling any punches.

Ronda Rousey will not fight bitter rival Cristiane Justino until "Cyborg" makes the 135-pound weight limit.

Don Frye is not impressed.

The combat sports legend, who recently spoke to Submission Radio, wants the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion to "shut the hell up" and fight the former Strikeforce featherweight titleholder once and for all.

You know, like a "real fighter."

Oh, and those weight limit and drug testing requests, throw those out the window, too.

"Why is she bitching about -- who's the woman fighter that she keeps complaining about?...Cyborg. Fight Cyborg. Tell her to shut the hell up. I don't want to hear you say you can fight a man until you fight Cyborg, and don't insist that she gets drug tested for anything, and don't insist that she makes weight. Shut the hell up and fight the woman and like a real fighter does, don't worry about rules and this and that."

Don't hold back there, Don.

The good news? "Cyborg" is already signed with UFC, which means a much-anticipated fight between the two dominant champions is closer to becoming a reality.

Well, maybe.

The Brazilian still has to make the bantamweight limit prior to getting her hands on the queen of mixed martial arts (MMA). That, and win a fight (or two) under the Invicta FC banner before Justino can make her Octagon debut. Frye's reaction?

"This is so fucking stupid."
