Tweet of the Day: Cris Cyborg weighs 175 lbs, can she drop to bantamweight against Ronda Rousey?

Cris Cyborg posted a photo showing she weighs 175 lbs. It will be a tough cut to 135 if she ever tries that to face Ronda Rousey.

After the two dominant women won their bouts in a combined 60 seconds this past weekend, all the talk has been centered on a possible super-fight between Ronda Rousey and Cris Cyborg. Both Dana White and Rousey have been insistent that Justino will have to cut down to 135 lbs for it to ever happen, but it looks like Cyborg is far off from that weight.

The 145 lb Invicta champ posted the following on social media:

Cyborg has hired a nutritionist to try and eventually drop down to 140 or maybe even 135, but is that even possible? She already looked a bit drained when she dieted and cut 30 lbs to make featherweight, and they expect 10 more lbs?

Also consider the fact that this was taken less than 2 days after blasting Charmaine Tweet, so this isn't her 'out-of-shape' or off season weight either.
