UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Cyborg will never get the chance to battle Mayweather in the Octagon, but the female fighting sensation claims a tap out would go her way if the two ever fought.
“I would try my grappling for him,” Cyborg said to TMZ Sports. “First thing I would try is a double leg (before tapping him).”
Cyborg has also attempted to venture into the sport of professional boxing, as she has been granted a boxing license in the state of California.
The reason that Cyborg claims she could defeat Mayweather in the Octagon is because the Brazilian trains with a lot of men.
“When I am training with guys I learn a lot because they are stronger,” she said. “And some guys have a lot of techniques they can teach me and for sure improve my game.”
UFC 222 takes place on Saturday, March 3 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Cyborg and Yana Kunitskaya headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
