On July 5, Ronda Rousey will defend her Women's Bantamweight Championship title against Alexis Davis at UFC 175. Not Gina Carano or Cris “Cyborg” Justino. But let's make one thing clear. Rousey is still very open to the possibility of taking on Carano, who is mulling over the idea of stepping back into the Octagon after five years away from the sport, in the near future. As for "Cyborg," well, we should probably just let Ronda explain her feelings towards that potential match.
"I've said before, I don't care if she's injecting horse semen into her eyeballs, I'll fight her, but that's just my personal decision," Rousey said. "But I can't make a decision for the whole division. I can't say it's the right thing. This girl has been on steroids for so long and [has been] injecting herself for so long that she's not even a woman anymore. She's an 'it.' It's not good for the women's division. It's not good at all.
Following a December 2011 match against Hiroko Yamanaka, Justino was suspended for a year and slapped with a $2,500 fine after testing positive for the anabolic steroid stanozolol. In an interview with Yahoo!, Cyborg claimed that she used it to solely help her make weight. Still, that reason doesn't fly with Rousey. "I really think with Cyborg taking all of those steroids and hormones and then going into the cage, it's like going in with a weapon," Rousey said. "It's certainly very negligent, but it's also criminal. I believe, it really is. Promoting her would be promoting that act and I think it would be wrong in every way."
