Cyborg: Mauro Calling NXT Makes Me Want To Wrestle

Mauro Ranallo's NXT return could be the catalyst to the WWE landing a big MMA star?

Cris "Cyborg" Justino took to Twitter Monday afternoon and told the world that seeing the combat sports voice calling the action for WWE NXT makes her want to wrestle.

This isn't the first time Cris Cyborg has flirted with the idea of being a pro wrestler. She did a little training session with former TNA knockout Raquel earlier this year and told Fightful that she wouldn't mind wrestling, specifically Ronda Rousey.

"I wouldn't even count this as a first practice," Cyborg said with a laugh to Fightful in March. "I never tried before and (Raquel) showed me a couple things. I need (a) coach, but I enjoy wrestling."

Cyborg is set to take on Megan Anderson for the vacant UFC Featherweight Championship at UFC 214 on July 29.
