The most feared women’s fighter on the planet, Cris Cyborg, has issued yet another challenge to former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, but this time the stipulations are much different.

Cyborg has apparently garnered an interest in professional wrestling, this after recently training moves with TNA & WWE Tough Enough Star Gabriela “Gabi” Castrovinci, and has decided that a bout with Rousey under the WWE banner makes sense.

With that said, Cristiane Justino is not looking for a one-on-one match with Ronda, but instead has challenged “Rowdy” to a tag team match.

Check it out.

Clearly Cris Cyborg is hoping to team up with “Raquel” for the proposed WWE match.

You can watch Cyborg training with Raquel (Gabriela “Gabi” Castrovinci) in the video below:

Meanwhile, if Ronda Rousey were interested in participating in the proposed tag team match she would have three solid options at her immediate disposal.

Rousey is part of “Four Horsewomen” group which includes Marina Shafir, Shayna Baszler and Jessamyn Duke.

Ronday Rousey returned to the octagon for the first time in over a year this past December in the main event of UFC 207 where she suffered a devastating first-round knockout loss to current division champion Amanda Nunes.

The setback marked Rousey’s second in a row as she had previously been knocked out by Holly Holm via head kick at UFC 193 in November of 2015.

Prior to that “Rowdy” was undefeated going a perfect 12-0 with all twelve wins coming by form of stoppage. Eleven of Ronda’s twelve career victories have come in the very first-round of action.

Meanwhile, Cris Cyborg recently made headlines after being forced to vacate her Invicta featherweight championship on Friday.

The feared Brazilian striker was most recently seen in action against Lina Lansberg who she defeated via second-round TKO.

Cyborg recently called out current UFC featherweight champion Germaine de Randamie for a fight at UFC 214 this July in Southern California.

However it sounds as if Justino would be more than willing to entertain a tag team match against her rival Ronda Rousey sometime in the near future.

With Wrestlemania just around the corner, maybe the WWE can set something up for fans at Summer Slam.
