When Ronda Rousey lost to Holly Holm via KO back at UFC 193, the talks of a potential Rousey vs. Cyborg superfight quickly faded.
While recently-crowned bantamweight champion Holly Holm has stated that she is open to fighting Cyborg in a superfight, fans still have an unfulfilled desire to see Rousey and Cyborg battle it out inside the Octagon.
Cyborg has booked a fight at 145 pounds since Rousey lost, but gave her thoughts about a potential Rousey fight to Yahoo Sports.
“Do I still want to fight Ronda? Of course! However, if she wants to be the best she needs to beat the best, and that’s me at my best, not a depleted mirror of myself – which is what she is hoping for by forcing me to 135.”
“I hope [a fight with Rousey happens] for the fans. But if she was running from me before the loss, imagine how much faster she will be running from me now. I’m not chasing her anymore. After all, didn’t she say ‘You come to the champ?’ I have been a world champion for 10 years!”
