Cris Cyborg Has Revealed Which Woman In The UFC She’d Like To Give A Concussion To Next
After mercifully putting an end to her beating of a VERY game Tonya Evinger with a NASTY knee at UFC 214 to claim the Women’s Featherweight Championship Cris “Cyborg” Justino knows who she would like to beat the living hell out of, I mean fight, next.
Cyborg, who moved to 18–1 in her mixed martial arts career with her win against Evinger (her only loss was her very first fight WAY BACK in 2005 and she also previously won the Strikeforce and Invicta FC Championships), has her eyes set on another woman who has won a UFC championship: the legend-slayer Holly Holm.
Holm, who was 33-2-3 as a professional boxer before moving into MMA, finally got back on track at UFC Fight Night in June with a knockout of Bethe Correia. The win moved Holm to 11-3 with all three of those losses coming consecutively after losing the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship to Miesha Tate at UFC 196.
Speaking to FOX Sports 1 after the fight, Cyborg had this to say…
“My next move, I’d like a fight with Holly Holm,” said Cyborg. “I think she is a great fighter and she is a bigger girl, just like me. She’s (fought) already at 145.
“I think it’s a fight that all fans are going to like because she is a striker. Let’s do that, maybe next year, I don’t know.”
Dana White, for his part, says he had already spoken to Holm, a more natural Featherweight than Bantamweight, and she seems down for the fight…
“I was just talking to Holly Holm back there…and it seems like she’s interested,” said White. “I like Holly versus Cyborg. I think it’s a good fight.”
