UFC offers “Cyborg” Santos services of Mike Dolce to help get over weight-related hump

One of the few super-fights MMA fans are legitimately interested in seeing involves a potential match-up between UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey and former Strikeforce featherweight queen Cristiane Santos. Both women have decimated opposition time and time again, compiling fourteen finishes in sixteen total scraps, and they also happen to dislike one another on a personal level.

Though the UFC is more than willing to book a bout between the two, the shredded Santos has shied away from the notion of dropping down to 135 pounds for health-related reasons. As a result, the UFC is now willing to help her make the move by providing the expertise of MMA fitness guru Mike Dolce free of charge in hopes of helping facilitate a rumble with Rousey.

“He is 100% ready to work with her and will not cost anything to Cris,” said UFC President Dana White in an interview with TATAME.

Dolce has earned a reputation as one of the top experts in MMA when it comes to diet by helping fighters like Quinton Jackson and Vitor Belfort get down to optimal weights.

The outspoken executive also expressed frustration with her management team’s decision to drag their feet on fighting Rousey, showing concern for the possibility of “Cyborg” falling outside of the organization and thereby greatly diminishing the appeal of action against “Rowdy” Ronda.
