The UFC is a bunch of dirty hypocrites when it comes to protecting Ronda Rousey, so claims reigning Invicta FC featherweight champion Cris “Cyborg” Justino (pictured).
Justino has been actively pursuing a super-fight with UFC bantamweight champ Rousey for years, but the UFC and Rousey have constantly presented various roadblocks to prevent the shootout from happening.
The primary reason is that Justino has yet to prove she can safely shed the 10 pounds required to challenge Rousey for her 135-pound crown. Since Rousey is the UFC’s biggest superstar, she is not about to cater anyone, specifically to a buff Brazilian who was busted for steroids in 2011.
And that’s the second reason…
Well, as it appears to have turned out according to this week’s shocking Deadspin.com article, the UFC had no issues with allowing Vitor Belfort to remain in his title tilt against then-light heavyweight champ Jon Jones at UFC 152 after Belfort reportedly registered elevated levels of testosterone in a pre-fight drug screening.
Justino couldn’t help but notice the UFC’s hypocrisy when it comes to protecting its golden girl. She put the UFC on blast in Tuesday’s Facebook post:
“Hmmmm…somebody tests positive for steroids BEFORE fighting for a UFC World Championship, but is still allowed to fight, and it takes almost 3 years before the public finds out?
Open your eyes!
I am clean, and am willing to prove it with a year of Olympic Testing before any fight, I wonder if the current UFC champion at 135 is willing to agree to the same?
what do you mean? some are crucified and others are not even mentioned!”
In a follow-up comment, Justino stated she was not going after Belfort. “Has nothing to do with Vitor. his name only appeared. It was this point I am emphasizing. I am emphasizing that everyone has to be punished or equal rights to all.”
Justino’s latest plea will likely fall on deaf ears.
Rousey is slated to defend her throne against Holly Holm at UFC 193, then bolt to Hollywood to film a couple movies before returning to the cage.
Justino, meanwhile, will take her first significant step toward meeting the UFC and Rousey’s demands my fighting in a 140-pound catchweight contest in November. If all goes well there, a 135-pound bout should be her next move.
