Invicta FC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg made a statement in her UFC debut earlier this month at UFC 198 when she defeated Leslie Smith via TKO in the very first-round.

The feared Brazilian striker has heard the rumors about a possible boxing match between retired champion Floyd Mayweather and current UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor. If that boxing match was to become official, Cris says she would love the opportunity to box on that same card. Her words:

Cyborg was rumored to be in talks with the UFC about a second catchweight fight (140-pounds) against Germaine de Randamie at UFC 201 this July.

However, Cyborg put an end to those ‘rumors’ when she announced that her next fight would be a title defense under the Invicta FC banner.
