At the UFC 193 post-fight press conference UFC President Dana White stated that Holly Holm’s KO win over Ronda Rousey certainly shook up the UFC women’s bantamweight division. In addition, a potential superfight with Cris Cyborg certainly had lost some of its hype.
She spoke to MMAFighting via text message:
“She underestimated Holly Holm. Everyone, even Dana White, was saying Cyborg would be next after she gets past Holly. Look at what Ronda said after the weigh-ins. You don’t play with God.”
Cyborg revealed that she is still interested in a fight with Rousey, and that she is still working on cutting down to 140 pounds for her upcoming fight, which would likely ultimately lead to a cut to 135 for a fight with Rousey.
In addition, Cyborg believes that in a rematch between Holm and Rousey, Holm wins once again.
“I think Holly wins again.”
