QUICK TWITT | Cyborg To Ronda: ‘I’m coming to get you’
It’s a rivalry that’s been building for years now between two of the most feared women in MMA today, and following UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey’s (left) successful title defense this weekend, Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino (right) intends to make a fight between the two happen.

While the rivalry we saw between Miesha Tate and UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was intense and personal leading up to their fight at UFC 168, the matchup pales in comparison to what many fans envision from a potential fight between Rousey and Invicta FC featherweight champion, Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino.
For Cyborg’s part, she let it be known after UFC 168 that she intends to see that fight come to fruition.
As far as Rousey and the UFC are concerned, however, the UFC champ will be facing Sarah McMann at UFC 170 in February as her next opponent.
While that means ‘Cyborg’ will not be next to face Rousey, the delay could clear the way for Justino to make a deal with the UFC and make the weight cut to 135 lbs, as the bantamweight division is the heaviest women’s division in the UFC.
