‘Cyborg’ still wants Rousey after Holm rematch: ‘I think Holm wins again’

November 17, 2015 7:53 am by Evan Bell

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.

While Rousey has stated that despite the brutal KO loss she will be back eventually, Cris Cyborg still wants a fight with Rousey.

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.”
