Cyborg Confident She Will Get A Fight Against Rousey


Cris Cyborg vs. Ronda Rousey is arguably one of the biggest potential superfights of the modern era.

Cyborg and Rousey admittedly don’t like one another, however it looked like a superfight was possible down the line several months ago when Cyborg was set to make her Invicta FC bantamweight debut. Unfortunately, a serious injury forced Cyborg out of the bout, and her bantamweight debut was put off as talk of a bantamweight run was postponed.

Cyborg spoke to MMAFighting, and discussed the possibility of a superfight against Rousey down the line.

“I think this fight will happen. I think all the fans want to watch it, and the UFC wants to make this fight. But I am focused on my next fight now. Charmaine Tweet is my next opponent now.”

“You know, I believe anything is possible. I don’t know. I’m trying a diet now, and [I was] before too, but before I had an injury. I’ll try. If it doesn’t happen at 135, we can make 145. I don’t know. But I’m excited for this fight so I’m going to try my best for this fight to happen for all my fans, and for me and my family.”
