Cris Cyborg tells UFC to make Ronda Rousey super-fight

Strikeforce: Carano vs. Cyborg

Cris Cyborg has sent a message to the UFC about a potential fight with Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

New challenge

Cyborg (14-1,1 NC) was on ESPN SportsCenter on Wednesday morning, and didn't hold back when quizzed about a future fight:

"This fight has to happen," Cyborg said. "If the UFC thinks I don't deserve this fight, don't do it for me. Do it for all the fans."

Ronda Rousey (12-0) beat Bethe Correia within 34 seconds on Saturday night at UFC 190. The undefeated champion has beat her last three opponents' in a combined time of one minute four seconds.

This dominance has sparked talk about a possible fight with Cris Cyborg who has also been very consistent, suffering only one defeat in a 10-year fighting career.

There's no doubt MMA fans want to see this fight, and many believe that Cyborg could be Rousey's biggest threat yet. But with so much dominance in her career many also believe that this could be another win for Rousey.

One issue

Dana White was positive the fight would be the biggest in Womens' UFC, stating he thought the fight could do 2.5 million pay-per view buys, but was adamant that it could only happen if Cyborg made the 135 pounds weight category.

But it doesn't sound like Cyborg, whose real name is Cristiane Justino, is to keen on making 135 pounds. She's the 145 pound Invicta Featherweight Champion, and believes 'Rowdy' Ronda Rousey should be the one to move up to 140 or 145.

"All the champions do this when you clean your division," Cyborg added. "The champ goes up."

With a superfight looking increasingly unlikely, Cyborg promised a "different" kind of fight if it did happen.

"You'll see," Cyborg said "Violence."
