UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has easily defeated all of her opponents so far and it’s to the point where it seems like everyone is calling for a fight with Invicta FC featherweight champion Cristiane Cyborg.

Of course, this isn’t a new debate. Fans have been calling for that fight for a long time, but it seems even more apparent now that Rousey has blown up into a mega superstar. Even casual fans who only follow Rousey are chiming in, giving their thoughts on a potential fight with Cyborg. Even ESPN had the featherweight champ on to talk about a possible fight with Ronda.

The argument has come from both sides, Cyborg calling for a catchweight fight, while Rousey insists that Cyborg should have to make the 135 weight limit.

Name calling has taken place and accusations have been made. But recently on Joe Rogan’s podcast, the UFC champ revealed that in her opinion if the fight with Cyborg never happens, her career might feel unfinished.

Check out what she had to say:

“It just seems unfinished – my career, there’s more left to do – I don’t feel like I’m done yet. With the Olympics it just like, you win an Olympic gold medal and you’re done. With the UFC, when am I really done? I’m not. It feels unfinished still. (The ‘Cyborg’ fight) definitely would (help).”

Rousey when on to say that she truly believes Cyborg can make the weight, if she stops doing the steroids she’s doing. Something Rousey says she has no proof of, but is simply going off of the eye test, saying that she still looks like she did before, when she tested positive.
