Cris 'Cyborg' lashes out after not getting fight with Ronda Rousey
Cris “Cyborg” won’t be fighting former women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey at UFC 207 in December and the Brazilian fighting legend took to Twitter shortly after the announcement was made to let the world know she’s not happy about the decision.
UFC president Dana White announced on Wednesday’s episode of “The Herd” that Rousey will face Amanda Nunes for the bantamweight title on Dec. 30 at UFC 207. The matchup wasn’t all that surprising given the fact that White has said for the longest time that Rousey would receive an immediate title upon her return, but some questioned if she deserved the fight given that she is coming of a loss and has no history with Nunes.
“Cyborg” was one of those people, and for the past few months has turned up the heat in her efforts to goad Rousey into a catchweight superfight. She hit her breaking point today when it the UFC made it official that Rousey would be facing Nunes and went on a twitter rant that included numerous retweets from fans who were eager to see “Cyborg” vs. Rousey instead.
White also said during the interview that if Rousey wins her belt back at UFC 207, the fight with Cyborg “will definitely happen.” Cyborg doesn’t appear to keen on taking his word for it though.
If Ronda lose we can still fight. Holly Holm lose 2 times still take tough fights. She real fighter not media made https://t.co/3vGm83CpGJ— Cris Cyborg (@criscyborg) October 12, 2016
