i dont see where she has fhe right to disrespect, call out or talk any kind of crap about ronda. she is a cheater for one she is a 145er trying to call the shots concerning the 135 pound belt. she says she cant drop to 135, i am going to guess when i say it has something to do with the roids use.i think her geting caught doing roids ithurt her stock,what is a good way to get your stock back up/ talk some crap abouta champ you cant, and dont want to fight. no doubt it would be a great fight, i even tell my friends that cristiane would destroy her. but i have not seen her fight since she was caught cheating.to be the best, you have to beat the best.

I totally agree with you. If you look at athletes who have been catch using steroids, they are never the same after coming off of them. They will not have the strength, speed or recovery (from training) as they did on steroids. It is all smoke and mirrors for her to say she can't make 135 lbs. She will lose muscle mass after stopping steroid use and she needs to be on a clean diet, I believe she had been using steroids for years...What does it say about her win over Gina??? Ultimately, Ronda will beat her at 135 or 145. Ronda is in control and will make Christine play on Ronda's terms. Christine is a blue belt BJJ and Ronda will eat her up on the mat. If anyone has been paying attention...Ronda's striking is getting better and better. Ronda has been doing MMA for only 2 years. There is a couple of 145 lbs women in Invicta that will give Christine a run for her money and Christine will lose the big chance at Ronda. There are 3 fighters at 145 lbs that will be a big threat to Christine Santos. Don't be surprise that if she faces one of them and loses.The biggest threat maybe newcomer Veronica Rothenhausler. She has power and more accurate striker than Christine. No one has gone pass the first round with her and she is laser pin point striking. Check out some of her matches.

Also, Cristine is fighting Ediane Gomes at Invicta fc 5 in April. Gomes is 10-2 vs Santos 10-1. Gomes was Ronda's 1st pro fight and Ronda beat Gomes in 30 seconds. Gomes is pretty good fighter. Lets see how difficult it is for Santos to beat her. Gomes will give Santos a run for the money. I think it will go the distance and Santos will probably win with some difficulty. Maybe a lot of difficulty.
