    . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way.
    With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a
    wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many
    of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their

    . With his new coach and six-time Grand Slam singles champion
    Boris Becker watching him during an official match for the first time, Djokovic
    appeared tentative early against the Slovakian player, who often appeared
    content to keep the ball in play. Cris Cyborg Justino, the No. 1 female fighter
    in the world, posted an online video this week that showed her arguing with
    renowned nutritionist George Lockhart.In the video, Justino is shown questioning
    Lockharts decision to place her on birth control for the purpose of weight
    management during her recent camp. The video drew nearly 50,000 views the day it
    was published.As Justino (16-1) prepares for her second fight in the UFC, a
    140-pound catchweight bout against Lina Lansberg at UFC Fight Night on Saturday
    in Brazil, much (if not all) of the prefight focus is on her weight -- which has
    been the case for years.Justino has been a 145-pound champion in multiple
    promotions, but the UFC does not promote a female weight class above 135. To
    this point, the highest weight the UFC has been willing to offer Justino is a
    140-pound catchweight.According to UFC officials, Justino weighed in, clothed,
    at 156 pounds on Tuesday morning. Thats over the UFCs recommendation of a
    check-in weight, which is within 8 percent of contracted weight. The UFC said
    its monitoring Justinos health as a result. Lockhart assured via text,
    Everything is where it needs to be.Justino, 31, told the addition of
    birth control pills made her feel heavier during fight preparations, which has
    her visibly stressed this week.In my last UFC fight, I had a hard time making
    140, Justino said. Then this camp, something different happened. George Lockhart
    gave me birth control and said it would help me to cut weight. All my camp, I
    trained really hard. I trained double because I feel my body was different. And
    then this makes me really nervous. The difference is the birth control.UFC vice
    president of health and performance Jeff Novitzky told, The health and
    safety of our athletes comes first and foremost, so our team in Brazil will be
    monitoring the situation closely and staying in constant communication with Cris
    and her team.It all begs the question why Justino is fighting at 140 pounds at
    all. A reasonable answer is the UFC might still hold some desire to book her at
    135. For a long time, that was the caveat for a proposed superfight between
    Justino and former UFC champion Ronda Rousey. The UFC and Rousey repeeatedly
    said that matchup would have to take place at 135 pounds with a title on the
    line.ddddddddddddJustino, however, has shut down cutting any lower than 140.
    Money talks, so you can never completely rule out something in this sport -- but
    within the last year, Justino has taken a pretty concrete stance against ever
    fighting at 135.I already said 135 is off the table, Justino said. They know I
    cannot make 135. Its too hard for me, and everybody who saw me when I cut to 140
    knows. Its not healthy. Im not looking to be the champion at 135 -- I just want
    to make a superfight.Another potential issue, however, is finding a legitimate
    opponent to fight Justino at 145 pounds. UFC bantamweight Leslie Smith agreed to
    fight at 140 pounds for Justinos promotional debut in May, and she weighed in
    only at 139 pounds.Lansberg (6-1) told she has fought the majority of
    her MMA career at 135 pounds and intends to continue at that weight following
    this weekend. She believes she was pegged as Justinos opponent because she has
    fought at higher weights previously during an extended Muay Thai career.I did
    expect a call from the UFC sooner or later, but I did not expect Cyborg to be
    the first fight, Lansberg said. I think my Muay Thai career is why they wanted
    me to fight at 140. Its hard for them to find an opponent for her, and somebody
    with my background, who has had more than 80 Muay Thai fights, Im a good
    opponent for her. After this fight, Ill be back at 135.UFC president Dana White
    recently said the promotion still has no plans in the near future of adding
    Justinos 145-pound weight class. Justino provided a similar outlook when asked
    about that possibility, responding, I really dont know.Its a situation the UFC
    and Justino are hopefully able to resolve, regardless of what happens this
    weekend. As it stands, booking Justino to non-title, 140-pound catchweight bouts
    against seemingly inferior opponents isnt taking us anywhere. As nice as it is
    to simply see her fighting in the UFC, it would be nicer to see her in a
    narrative that has to do with something other than weight. ' ' '
