Cris If Cris “Cyborg” Santos and Ronda Rousey ever meet in the UFC, it will have to be at 145lbs or it won’t be happening at all.

Santos met with her doctors recently including a visit to the cardiologist to see about a possible move down to 135lbs, so that she could eventually and hopefully meet Rousey inside the cage to settle their long standing differences.

Members of Cris Cyborg’s camp confirmed to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday that she visited with her heart doctor and was told that a cut to 135lbs would just not be safe based on her personal physical health. Her cardiologist stated emphatically that he would not sign off on a move down a weight class based on her current health.

The dangers to her body could also prohibit Santos from carrying a child later in life, and according to her camp, that was a risk the former Strikeforce champion was unwilling to make for any fight.

Santos’ walking around weight currently hovers around 160lbs and the 25lb cut would just be too much for her body according to her doctors.

Santos is currently still sitting out awaiting the time in which she can re-apply for a fight license after being suspended for a year following a positive test for a banned substance in California. When she is eligible to return, the question now remains where she will fight at and who will it be against?

The most logical fight for Santos would be a match-up with Rousey in the UFC, if both ladies are moved over to the promotion.

The only problem is it now appears the UFC will only be focusing on the women’s bantamweight division at 135lbs where Rousey currently competes.

If only the 135lb fighters are brought over, that could leave Santos without a home to fight in under the Zuffa umbrella, and a super fight with Rousey off the table.
