UFC’s Brazilian Site Trolls Fans With Brief Promise of Rousey vs. Cyborg

Was somebody at having a little joke last night — or did they reveal something they weren’t allowed to yet? Whatever the case, the UFC’s official Brazilian website briefly posted a link to UFC 157: Rousey vs. Cyborg, the women’s superfight that remains too good to be true.

Cris Cyborg immediately denied the match was happening, telling MMAJunkie that while she is currently negotiating with the UFC, she won’t be meeting Ronda Rousey at the February 23rd event in Anaheim. But in violation of her strict doctor’s orders, the former Strikeforce’s 145-pound women’s champ revealed that she could indeed get down to 135 pounds eventually: “In one month, I can’t do it, but if I have time, I could do it,” Cyborg said, perhaps miscalculating the amount of time between now and 2/23.

The details of Rousey’s UFC debut remain unknown. Nevertheless, she remains the UFC’s 135-pound women’s champion. Pretty sweet gig, if you ask me.

Penn, you forgot the mandatory 'they have Internet In Brazil???' joke.
I'm waiting for a cyborg under regular testing. Would be interested to see the 'genetics' there.

*joke about Cyborg [having a penis/being a man/taking roids]*

That should take care of the vast majority of comments that would otherwise have been posted.

They don't do PPV in Brazil, either.

This is the part where Ronda goes "Oh shit!"
Never believed Dana's claim that Cyborg wasn't interested. Pfff.
And these little UFC slip ups never seem to happen for no reason or accidentally...
