“UFC 190” saw one of the most dominant championship defenses in company history when Ronda Rousey floored Bethe Correia in just thirty-four seconds. No matter how big the buyrate is for the pay-per-view, though, the turnout would be nothing compared to a super-fight between the champion and Cris ‘Cyborg’.
Cyborg wasted no time in calling Rousey out on social media after her big win on Saturday night. “I hope we get a chance to give fans the WMMA fight the most violent fight in the history,” Cyborg said to Rousey. In order for the fight to happen, Cyborg would have to prove to Dana White she can cut the weight from featherweight (145) to bantamweight (135). If she can do that, the UFC President thinks they can crush PPV records.
“The day she makes the weight, that fight is on,” White said after “UFC 190” concluded. “That fight will go nuts. I’m changing my mind, we’ll do 2.5 million buys for that one.”
