Cris Cyborg Is Not Against The Idea Of Facing Ronda Rousey In WWE


Cyborg did not turn the idea down.

The newly-inducted UFC Hall Of Famer Ronda Rousey is fully in the swing of her WWE career as Ronda will be challenging for the RAW Women's Championship at WWE's "Biggest Party Of The Summer" SummerSlam. One individual who has kept an eye on what Ronda Rousey has been doing in WWE is the current UFC Women's Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg.

The 20-1-0 Cyborg has never had the opportunity to clash with Ronda in the octagon but while being interviewed by TMZ Sports for a brief moment, Cyborg stated that although the bout may never happen in UFC she is not against the idea of meeting face-to-face with Ronda in the squared circle.

"You know some fans ask me, ‘Oh Cris would you like to have a fight with Ronda Rousey in WWE?’ You know that fight that everybody would like to watch and never happened. I said, ‘Maybe, I don’t know, maybe.’ Its not something I planned but if fans would like to watch it, I’d need a trainer for that but you know [it would] be great”. Cyborg said.
