“I think this fight has to happen. I think Ronda [said] a lot of things about me, a lot of bad things. A lot of fans forget about, but I never forget about. I would like to fight her in the cage. I think we have a lot of things to talk in the cage, and not outside the cage. I hope she’s coming back. I want to fight soon. I don’t have time to wait… I think it would be an amazing fight and all fans would see it. I think it would be the biggest fight ever. Me and Ronda Rousey. Everybody wanna watch.”
-Cris “Cyborg” Justino talks to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour about still wanting a fight with former UFC Champ Ronda Rousey.
Penick’s Analysis: I think Justino’s going to find herself disappointed on that end. The fight is probably easier for the UFC to make at this stage, but when Rousey’s return is already in question to begin with, and her time in the sport still uncertain, Justino’s not going to be at the top of her list. She’s avoided that fight with reason in the past, and she’ll probably continue to do so without if and when she returns.
