Ronda Rousey’s mom, Dr. AnnMaria DeMars and her daughters biggest rival, Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino have become embroiled in a public war of words in recent days.
It’s not hard to see where Rousey’s outspoken attitude came from, DeMars, a former judo champion herself, is certainly not shy to share here opinions and as a guest on a recent episode of Submission Radio she didn’t hold back on her thoughts regarding a fight between her daughter and ‘Cyborg’.
“Oh Ronda will break her arm,” DeMars stated. “I can say that right now. I’ll tell you two things; Ronda will break her arm, and Ronda will not go up in weight, and the reason she won’t apparently is because Cris Cyborg has missed weight multiple times. So if you have her fight at 140, she’s going to show up at 145 or 150.”
“So that’s the first thing. If she’s gonna miss 135, she can at least give Ronda 10 percent of the purse. And then secondly, she has kind of an inflated record, because if you look back at some of her matches, she’s fought woman who were 125 pounds and she’s 160.”
“You know that’s like Ronda fighting her little sister and her saying ‘oh look at me, I’m so dominant’. So I’m not impressed with her record, and of course failing the drug test thing. I almost feel like that’s sort of like when you get a DUI. That’s probably not the only time you were driving drunk.”
She also went into more detail as to why she’s so confident that Rousey would be taking one of ‘Cyborg’s’ arms home with her as a souvenir if they do ever fight in the Octagon.
“You know Ronda got a silver in the world’s, she got a bronze in the Olympics, she’s won the junior worlds, she’s won a lot of international Judo tournaments. And this is against women who have decades of experience trying to stop Olympic level Judo players from throwing and armbarring them.”
“So saying that Cris Cyborg is somehow magically going to be able to do that when Ronda’s been training this since she’s 11? I don’t think that’s going to happen. I think the first time Ronda gets her hands on her she’s going to knock her down and break her arm.”
After hearing DeMars comments, former Strikeforce and current Invicta FC 145lb champion ‘Cyborg’ took to the popular UG forum to pen a cutting response aimed at both parent and daughter.
“Honda mom look like Kim Kardashian mom. She give interview for what? She want to be TMZ superstar?
I missed weight 1 time in 10 years. I don’t know where she read this but I can guarantee I make 140lbs.
Cat Zingano was world Champion 125 before going up in weight to test herself, same thing Pacquiao is doing against Mayweather.
Honda would rather fight girls she know she can beat in the first round because the last time she challenge herself she only take home a Bronze medal.
Maybe we can ask Dana to give the loser of our fight a medal so she feel better about herself.
I don’t need my mom to give interview about how I will break some movie stars nose!
Honda look pussy. Before she talk about me but now she quiet and her mom defend her.
Everybody knows the time is coming. Ms. Housey please sit front row our fight and you will cry.
watch Joanna Jedrzejczyk last fight this is perfect example of how To stop takedown.
I don’t want your belt, I want your soul.
This is the last time I answer Honda’s mom she only try to make her name in the news. I don’t need to answer her if her daughter is too scared to talk for herself.
Everybody wants to make this fight except Team Hollywood.”
