Morning Report: Cris Cyborg slams Ronda Rousey's mother, saying she'll make her cry after taking her daughter's soul

Esther Lin, Strikeforce

Invicta FC featherweight Cris Cyborg sure doesn't appreciate the opinions of Ronda Rousey's inner circle.

Cyborg slammed the UFC women's bantamweight champion's grappling coach Rener Gracie when he commented on her history and now Rousey's mother is the target.

AnnMaria De Mars, Rousey's mother, spoke with Submission Radio earlier this week and had quite a few criticisms of Cyborg.

Comparing Cyborg's 'inflated record' to a play fight Rousey might have with her much younger sister, De Mars also attacked the Brazilian's legacy, saying her lone failed drug test for the diuretic stanozolol brings her entire career into question.

"I almost feel like that's sort of like when you get a DUI," said De Mars. "That's probably not the only time you were driving drunk. So I'd say her whole record is under suspicion."

Then, De Mars explained that Rousey holds grudges and will break Cyborg's arm as soon as she can get her hands on her.

"You know Ronda got a silver in the world's," De Mars said. "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."

Well, Cyborg doesn't agree.

Taking to The Underground Tuesday, Cyborg let De Mars know exactly how she feels:

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.
