Cris Cyborg wants to take on Ronda Rousey still — but now in the WWE ring

Current UFC Women's Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg still has her sights set on Ronda Rousey, but she knows it would have to be inside the WWE arena.

Cris "Cyborg" Justino and Ronda Rousey have had a longstanding feud for years, but with Rowdy tapping out of Octagon bouts, will we ever see a showdown?


If it were up to Cyborg, she'd gladly slide into the WWE's square ring and battle it out with the former UFC Champion. 

If this fight did happen, I would jump the rope and take the chair and throw her.

"If she wants to make a change in her career, I have to respect that," Cyborg, who is the current UFC Women's Featherweight Champion, told TMZ in a new interview. "She made the fans wait to make wishes to watch me and her one day, but now you cannot see that."

"But maybe I can go to the WWE and make a fight there, actually," she continued. "That's not my goal. I love UFC and I love my job."

If this showdown did take place, the 32-year-old already knows her game strategy, and it involves a steel chair.

"If this fight did happen, I would jump the rope and take the chair and throw her, but I don't think this fight is going to happen," she told the outlet. "If she didn't agree to fight MMA with me, she isn't going to agree to a fight in WWE."
