Cris Cyborg refuses to give up on a potential fight with Ronda Rousey.
The Invicta FC Featherweight Champion Cris "Cyborg" Justino took to social media Friday to call out the former UFC Bantamweight Champion Rousey, just days after declaring that she wanted her own weight division in the UFC.
"I'm not trying to inspire you to suddenly become a better person, or become anything you're not," said Justino. "But there was a time in your life when you told people you wanted to fight me. Maybe you didn't quite understand the way the world worked then, but you also didn't care what anyone thought."
Justino would blame the media for hyping Rousey up, before once again accusing her of avoiding the fight.
"I guess what I'm trying to tell you is that you don't need to be the champ to fight me. The media made you out to be the greatest female fighter of all time, and that is beautiful, because now everyone knows the real reason why you avoided a fight against Cris Cyborg. P4P #1 in the World for WMMA according to ESPN," Cyborg said.
It's worth noting that Rousey had actually signed a contract to face Justino at UFC 157 at the Staples Center. Justino would ask for her release from the UFC before signing. Cyborg has since requested to face Rousey at UFC 205 in November.
