It’s no secret that Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino wants to fight Ronda Rousey. These two have been going back and forth for years.
It doesn’t seem like that fight it is going to happen anytime soon, however, as Rousey is taking time off before her rematch with UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm.
On Wednesday, an official rematch date was set as they will face off at UFC 200 on July 9, 2016.
Upon hearing about this rematch date, Cyborg opened up about both Rousey and Holm. She held nothing back as she took a shot at Rousey in regards to a potential fight.
“Do I still want to fight Ronda? Of course!” Cyborg said in an interview with Yahoo Sports. “However, if she wants to be the best she needs to beat the best, and that’s me at my best, not a depleted mirror of myself – which is what she is hoping for by forcing me to 135.”
“I hope [a fight with Rousey happens] for the fans. But if she was running from me before the loss, imagine how much faster she will be running from me now, I’m not chasing her anymore. After all, didn’t she say ‘You come to the champ?’ I have been a world champion for 10 years!”
It certainly looks like Cyborg wants the match against Rousey, but it also looks like she will have to wait sometime to get it, if it ever does happen. I’m sure any UFC fan wants to see it and if they speak up enough, they will get it.
