Cris Cyborg calls out Ronda Rousey.
Last night on Raw, Ronda Rousey cut a passionate promo saying she has never pulled out of a fight and wanted to defend her Raw Women's Title despite doctors and Baron Corbin not wanting her to wrestle. Rousey had to be glued up after suffering a cut at Survivor Series thanks to Charlotte Flair and a kendo stick.
The Raw General Manager didn't want her wrestling, but Rousey eventually got her way and was allowed to defend her title against Mickie James. Rousey defeated James in less than three minutes with an armbar.
While Rousey's promo had plenty of fire to it, UFC Women's Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg didn't exactly believe the words she was saying.

A UFC bout between Cyborg and Rousey was rumored for years, but never materialized. Cyborg signed with UFC in March 2015, but did not make her promotional debut until May 2016. Rousey left the company in 2016 following a loss to Amanda Nunes.
Cyborg is scheduled to face Nunes on Dec. 29 at UFC 232.
