Video: Ronda Rousey names next 'worthy opponent' following Cat Zingano fight at UFC 184

"Gina is not in the UFC right now. She's off making a movie. Cyborg, I was looking forward to fighting her, but if by injured you mean she took too many steroids and can't make weight, she's extremely injured right now and is unavailable. Holly Holm is a world champion boxer who is undefeated and has very many knockouts under her belt and I think is an extremely worthy opponent."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey has a pretty stiff test ahead of her in undefeated No. 1 contender Cat Zingano, who tries to dethrone the "Rowdy" champ at the UFC 184 pay-per-view (PPV) event next Feb. in Los Angeles, California. And should the Olympian dispose of "Alpha" and escape without injury, she's likely to return to the cage for another two fights in 2015. But against who? With Gina Carano shining in "Tinseltown" and Cris Cyborg licking her wounds, Rousey expects to cross paths with undefeated pugilist Holly Holm, who also has some patching up to do (after this). Sound about right to you?
