Cris Cyborg is currently in the process of cutting down to 140 pounds for a catchweight fight under the Invicta FC banner in hopes of getting an eventual fight with Ronda Rousey at 135 pounds in the UFC. Cyborg posted a photo to her Instagram recently showing off her progress on her way down to 140.

On Inside MMA Friday night, Cyborg discussed the drop to 140 pounds as well as a potential fight with Rousey in the future, saying:

“I want to make 140, make healthy and make good fight for all my fans watching. And, of course, everybody want to watch me and Ronda Rousey. [That] don’t change, you know? My next fight, I fight again and after this fight probably people will ask again. And when Ronda Rousey fight Holly Holm people ask for this fight again. [But] next step make 140 next fight.”
