Until we see Ronda lose I don't think Marloes' comments are justified. Also, why should Ronda have to go to Cyborg's weight? It's Cyborg's obligation. But then again Marloes is speaking from the viewpoint of someone with heavily vested interest!
And I agree, Marloes is so, so sexy.
In so far as until someone found Sapp's weak point, everyone was scared of him. It's true though, until someone can take Ronda out of her game, it's really an unfair comparison. Particularly, as you point out, because Ronda has made relatively short work of people that are highly ranked.
The weight argument is further to the allegation that Ronda went to 135 to duck Cyborg and Marloes seems to think she'll struggle to continue to make weight. Marloes fights at 145 and so appears only semi interested in Ronda. I found her comments about Invicta versus UFC in so far as women's bouts go, particularly interesting.
