Meet The One Female MMA Fighter That Might Be Able To Beat Ronda Rousey

UFC Champion Ronda Rousey looks unstoppable at the moment. She’s currently on an eleven fight win streak, winning the last three in less than two minutes combined.

At this point there is only one fighter that possibly has a chance to beat Rousey and her name is Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino.

Since 2009, Justino has finished six consecutive opponents by TKO, including a win last night against Charmaine Tweet that took only 46 seconds.

The former 145-pound Female Strikeforce champion has the same ability as Rousey to make opponents look completely hopeless in the Octagon.

The main issue barring a fight between Rousey and Justino is weight. UFC president Dana White has been adamant that the fight must take place in Rousey’s weight class of 135 pounds, but Justino has always had trouble cutting to 145 pounds. That makes a fight at 135 highly unlikely.

Another complication is Justino’s positive test for steroids in 2012, which is likely to give the UFC some pause due to the recent rash of positive drug tests within the company.

But even with all that, let’s hope the UFC figures out how to to get this fight done because it would be incredible.
