The outspoken UFC President, Dana White is willing to hire the help of trainer and fitness author Mike Dolce to manage Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos. He is not accepting excuses from the fighter that she cannot make bantamweight weight limit to be able to fight Ronda Rousey.
He said that the only way that Santos will be able to fight at UFC is in the bantamweight division. When Dana White was interviewed he reiterated that: “She can get to this weight. We have an expert who can help you lose weight in a healthy way. We have Mike Dolce, who has wrestlers lose weight and still feel good and it’s all about your diet. He is 100 percent ready to work with her and will not cost anything to Cris… Cyborg needs to get on the boat. If she wants to fight in the UFC, she’ll have to fight this category of 135 pounds.” White also added a special bonus: “The stupidest thing about it is that she has Tito Ortiz as his manager.”
And still at UFC, the new The Ultimate Fighter 17 commercial has been released. This is for the January 22 premier of their new season. The reason why this season is very special is that it will feature light heavyweight Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen; these impressive fighters will coach this season’s new set of fighters and not to mention will fight for the light heavyweight title in April.
UFC President Dana White has even commented that other fighters were scared out of their wits to fight these two hard hitting fighters.
Jon “Bones” Jones is a premier light heavyweight from Rochester, New York, USA and has a superb 17 I win and only one loss which is under the hands of Matt Hamill way back in The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale in 2009. Chael Sonnen on the other hand is from West Linn, Oregon, USA with a 27 wins, 12 losses and 1 draw in his record. His last fight was a loss against Anderson Silva in a headline fight in UFC 148 in July 2012.
These two will square it off at UFC 159 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on April 27, 2013.
