Cris Cyborg current women featherweight champion said that she has no desire to beat up Ronda, there was a time when she wanted to fight her so badly that time has passed, but she is still down to fight Ronda Rousey, but not in the UFC.
Rousey’s coach Edmond Tarverdyan doesn’t know for sure if his star pupil, will ever fight again. But the coach would like her to step into the Octagon one more time, and he has an ideal opponent in mind Cris Cyborg.
“That’s the one,” Tarverdyan said. “I want that fight. When I trained Ronda, I know Ronda could beat Cyborg. I know that. Cyborg is too slow.”
Cyborg recently got her professional boxing license in the state of California, and currently training in Thailand and has campaigned relentlessly on social media for a Dec. 30 title defense at UFC 219 against Holly Holm.
“If Ronda Rousey wants to make another fight for the fans, I would still be willing to give it to them, I think it should be against Miesha Tate,” Justino said on her website Tuesday. “But I think it would be better to take place inside the WWE ring.

For her, it gets her one step closer to Hollywood, and for me, it would be another exciting challenge and a chance to test my athletic ability.”
“When I wanted to fight her, it was because she was at the top of her game and she had all of the confidence in the world,” Justino said.
“She had not been KO’d twice in a row, and some people were actually saying she could beat Floyd Mayweather in a fight.”
Rousey has not fought since a 48-second knockout loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 last December. Before that, she lost for the first time in MMA, a knockout loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in 2015.
