Team Cyborg Planning On Year-End Rousey Bout In UFC

March 4, 2015 8:46 am by BJPENN.COM News


“We’re working hand-in-hand with the UFC. [A Rousey fight by the end of the year] is our common goal, but we have to do it in a way that is beneficial to both of us.”

“The fight in July is definitely going to be at 145. We need to do it right. She’ll cut two to three pounds by summer, maybe she’ll make 135 in the fall and then we fight Ronda at the end of the year. That would be OK.”

“We don’t want it to be a Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao situation where it takes 10 years to make, after they are both out of their primes. We want them to be at their best and for it to be considered one of the best fights in the history of the sport.”

During a new chat with ESPN, Cris Cyborg’s manager discussed the possibility of a year-end super-fight between Cyborg and Ronda Rousey.

Will it happen?
