Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by BloodyElbow.com's Zane Simon .
As has become as a customary ritual before her fights, Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino has seen her Saturday UFC Fight Night main event in Brasilia versus Lina Lansberg turn into another referendum on her weight cutting. Breen and Simon dig into the latest variation of Justino's weight talks, how the Brazilian has actively tried to make her weight cutting a public, transparent narrative perhaps to her own detriment and why the release and publicizing of her disagreement with nutritionist George Lockhart over taking drospirenone to aid in making weight was misguided.
Breen and Simon also discuss whether or not 140 pounds makes any sense for Cyborg, if she will ever wind up fighting as a true featherweight at 145 in the Octagon, why her past failure for steroids complicates larger discussions of her weight cutting and what the UFC's long-term plan for her might be.
