UFC 193: Dana White says Cris 'Cyborg' 'probably' Ronda Rousey's next fight if she beats Holly Holm tonight

This wouldn't be the first time the idea of a bout between "Rowdy" and the Brazilian has been tossed around.

Don't jump the gun now, but should Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) superstar and pop culture phenomenon, Ronda Rousey ,defend her women's Bantamweight strap against ex-boxing champion Holly Holm at UFC 193 tonight (Sat., Nov. 14, 2015) inside Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, mixed martial arts (MMA) fans might have even more to be excited about.

That's because UFC President Dana White claims if "Rowdy" takes out "The Preacher's Daughter" in Australia this weekend, she will "probably" be in for a meeting with perennial rival Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino in the near future (via MMAjunkie), pending a successful drop to 140 pounds first, of course.

It's not like we've grown accustomed to hearing said rumors of a clash between the two women's MMA giants -- they've gone back several years now.

A bout between the bitter enemies all hinges upon Cyborg's ability to make it down to the 135-pound barrier successfully, which she has started and stopped once before. However, a performance-enhancing drug (PED) free Cyborg now says she's ready to make the plunge down to bantamweight.

With the banter increasing between Rousey and the Brazilian bomber over the course of 2015, it's about time these women get it on, before one of them disappears

For good.

And Cyborg just started to put together her gameplan to dethrone Rousey.
