It’s Official (Maybe)! Cris Cyborg Will Be The Next Opponent Destroyed By Ronda Rousey
The UFC Hall of Famer was on Inside MMA last night and claimed that his friend Cris Cyborg had been offered a fight against Rousey at the rumored UFC event this fall in AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Here’s a clip from the appearance.
“I’ve heard from Cris [Justino] actually that the fight that’s supposed to be happening at the Cowboy’s arena… they offered the fight to Cris. I know her management said yes and I’ve told her, ‘Let’s do it.’ So I guess the ball’s all in Ronda [Rousey]’s corner and Ronda wants to do it. Dana said if Cris came down to 135 they’ll make the fight happen, so let’s see if Ronda accepts the fight,” Tito said.
Cyborg backed up her ex-managers claim on social media, posting this tweet after the appearance.
I’m not lying nor is Tito- UFC called my manager last Sunday to see if I would fight Ronda at 135 on December 5 at… http://t.co/pF2VJdRuEU

Naturally, UFC President Dana White is calling Ortiz a liar because UFC would want to make an announcement of this magnitude.
“100 percent a lie. … Tito Ortiz is just making this shit up. In no way, shape or form did we offer her a fight against Ronda at Cowboys Stadium. Completely untrue.” — Dana White
It’s going to happen. It doesn’t matter who announces it, or when, it’s only a matter of time and money. Mostly money.
