Invicta FC CEO Shannon Knapp joined MMA Fight Corner for an interview which aired on Fox Spots to talk about the likelihood of Cris Cyborg dropping to 135.
“Both [Justino] and Gomes have both expressed interest in going down to 135. So I definitely am going to tell you, I think you’re going to see Cris go down to 35 on this platform on Fight Pass. And I think she’s going to make a run to get close to that fight with Ronda Rousey.”
“I know the fans want to see it. I want to see it,” Knapp added.
“I just haven’t had the time to be able to speak with her yet since the announcement. So, it’s certainly something we’re going to sit down and talk about. If she’s going to go ahead and drop now and make that run to where she really wants to go in the fight that everybody wants, or if she wants to come back in and defend it, the 145-pound title. So it’s kind of still a little bit up in the air.”
“But I know Cris very well and I know that she wants that fight,” Knapp continued. “She wants that fight and I know that she’s extremely determined. So don’t be surprised if she doesn’t start right out the gate.”
