I'm disgusted by this. I mean, I'm more than happy that Cyborg is finally getting a UFC fight, but this is gonna be a bludgeoning, even at a 140 catchweight. Classic Dana White: The Rousey hype-train is losing momentum, but he doesn't want to risk any bad PR on one of his upcoming meal tickets so he's throwing Leslie Smith to the wolves under the guise of making Cyborg earn her stripes.

And then, if she SOMEHOW manages to not die against Cyborg, he'll come out the same way he did with Holm..."I knew that Holm had what it takes...people laughed at me for making this card". It's a can't-lose proposition for him....smart, but weasel-like. As a fan, I'm not interested in his smart business making decisions or watching a 30-second KO on PPV. I don't expect Cyborg to get a title shot or anything, but Leslie Smith? I think she warrants at least a 11-15th ranked fighter...whoever is willing to fight at a catchweight.

It's not that bad. They give squash matches to people all the time.
