“Cyborg” Santos Still Hiding Behind Woman Problems, Doesn’t Care What Josh Barnett Says

(Few people can be terrifying while wearing a tiny bikini. Hats off to Cyborg.)

Cris “Cyborg” Santos isn’t going to let Josh Barnett get away with running around on MySpace, calling her unprofessional.  Facebook, maybe.  But MySpace?  Ain’t no way.  She responded to Barnett’s internet assault in a talk with Fighters Only, accusing the “Babyface Assassin” of being, in so many words, a hater, while continuing to use the old menstruation defense:

“I used the same diet that I used to fight Shayana and I made 140lbs, much less than this time. But I had a little problem that all women suffer every month. I had the menstrual period three days before the weigh-in and it put me in trouble.”

Oh, that pesky menstrual period.  Here’s the thing, I’ll admit to not knowing much about woman problems, but I did a little asking around in my social circle and what I learned is 1) women know we menfolk don’t know much about it, and on occasion they’ve been known to take advantage of our ignorance, and 2) they can look at the freaking calendar and know when it’s coming.

At the very least, Cyborg is guilty of poor planning.  She should have anticipated that she’d have these women troubles right around the same time as the weigh-in and made the necessary adjustments.  Not to do so is, as Barnett points out, unprofessional.

Now dammit, can we put this behind us?  Barnett and Cyborg have teamed up to force us to type the word ‘menstruation’ way more than we’re comfortable with already.  Basically she’s done for that word what last season’s “Ultimate Fighter” antics did for ‘semen.’  They might be good for search engine optimization, but it just attracts a whole different kind of crowd to the site, if you know what I’m saying.

    Most female athletes would be able to tell you that the 'women problems' tend to go away all together or become very very 'light' when you are training at an extreme level or have as little body fat as cyborg does. I think the whole excuse is pure bullshit, she probably hasn't had a menstrual cycle in years and definitely not when she is hard into a training program/pre-fight camp.

    Seven pounds of bloating for an elite athlete seems a bit excessive. Cyborg appologized and said it has never happened before, and never will again. We shall see.

    Take a look at that picture. Is that what YOUR wife/girlfriend/local hooker looks like when she's bloated with 7 pounds of water weight? All you needed to do was see the two of them in the ring to realize that they were definitely NOT in the same weight class, or anywhere close. Cyborg was ragdolling that heat lamp Chinese food server all over the ring like she was Junie Browning! I thought she was gonna skip right past Carano and call out Uriah freakin' Faber after the fight!

    I've trained in the same dojo as woman fighters before (Karate or Judo, not MMA) and they ALL had to make weight for tournaments no matter what, and they always did. They would have trouble if it was the wrong time of the month, but more to the tune of a pound or two, not coming in almost ten pounds over. She is a liar.

    Its weird how stuff works out, for her first fight in Elite XC she had hemmorroids and was bleeding out of her ass, this fight she is on her period and is bleeding out of her vag, and her next fight she will be bleeding out of her mouth. What can we learn from this? Just like Elite XC, anywhere Jared Shaw's penis has been will soon bleed dry. I love you Gina!

    She has a penis, that's where the 7 pound weight difference came from actually.

    First of all, congrats on the photo. Santos looks actually fuckable in that picture. Secondly, she looks pretty cut in that picture, more so than teh jap. 8 pounds and she would have been bodybuilder ripped with all the dangerous side effects that dehydration can play on the body. People make it sound like she came in looking like Jason Lambert.

    If she chopped off the 4 1/2 pound cock she's hiding somewhere, maybe she'll be able to make weight for the Carano bout. But, in no way am I going to suggest Gina lose the tits.

    Here's the thing, the fact is that as professional athlete she probably does have irregular cycles, but very unlikely an absence of them. The women who become amenorrheic are usually distance runners or other female athletes who walk around at single digit body fat percentages. If her cycle is indeed irregular, again, as is likely, she would be unable to tell when it may start. A woman can retain up to 10 lbs. excess water weight during this time. As one can see by the photos, she was already well defined despite water retention. It is completely plausible that she would have made the 145 lbs. limit if she had not been having the "female problems." She was just unfortunate enough to have it happen in the midst of a nationally televised event. And yes, I did go to medical school...and graduated.

    The only people setting women's MMA back are the uneducated people who will admit to knowing nothing about the menstrual cycle, and continuing to vilify Cyborg. I'm shocked that you would include your own personal bias in an article in which you admit your ignorance. Talk about being unprofessional. I am not however shocked at the sexist and racist commenters who continue to keep their feet on the throat of women's MMA by commenting on the attractiveness (or lack there of) of Cyborg and other fighters, instead of on their in-ring performance.
