Dana White: UFC Won’t Sign Cris “Cyborg” Santos If She Can’t Make 135 Pounds

UFC President, Dana White has revealed that former Strikeforce women’s featherweight champion, Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos has to make 135 pounds if the Las Vegas based promotion will be signing her.

White, speaking during the UFC 154 post-fight press conference, said:

“We’re bringing in the 135-pound division. I’m trying this whole women’s thing out. Obviously, Ronda is the champ. I think Ronda has the potential to be a big star. She’s already getting media that we’ve never even gotten before and she’s never even set foot in the UFC yet. That’s the division that we’re bringing in. We’re bringing in the 135-pound division. So, I don’t know. We’ll see. Our matchmakers have talked to their camp and she doesn’t seem too excited to fight Ronda.”
