The dream showdown between Ronda Rousey and Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino seemingly went up in smoke after Holly Holm knocked Rousey out last November. The mere concept of these two dominant forces in women’s MMA meeting was built upon the premise of both being invincible. But with Rousey suffering her first loss and the entire women’s bantamweight division being turned upside down over the past year, the focus has shifted away from bringing the fantasy bout to fruition.
However, Cyborg still has her sights set on a potential Rousey fight.
Speaking to MMA Junkie, the Invicta FC featherweight said she still envisions a fight with Rousey.
“I respect all the girls regardless of who they are,” Justino said. “But I believe there’s a ‘novela’ [Brazilian soap opera] between Ronda and I that we need to finish. I think that’s a fight everyone wants to watch.”
