UFC Quick Quote: Cris Cyborg thinks Ronda Rousey is 'scared' to fight her

Esther Lin

I think it looks like [Ronda's] scared of me. I don't know. Why? I don't like to think too much about it, I try to fight inside the cage. If she doesn't come for me, maybe I'll come for her, follow her and make this fight happen.

Everyone wants to watch this fight. I hope she accepts this fight so we can put on a big show for all fans. I think for women's MMA, it would be perfect. I wish I could make 135 so we can make this happen.

Invicta FC featherweight champion Cristiane Justino may be fighting Charmaine Tweet this evening (Fri., Feb. 27, 2015) inside Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California live on UFC Fight Pass in the main event of Invicta FC 11, but "Cyborg" is still fielding questions regarding her rival and potential future foe in UFC women's bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey. Speaking with ESPN W, the former Strikeforce champ noted that Rousey is scared of a fight due to her willingness to battle Gina Carano at 145 pounds, but not "Cyborg" (see Ronda's reasoning here). With UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta recently resuscitating discussions with "Cyborg" regarding a UFC contract, a win for Justino and Rousey -- who headlines UFC 184 on Saturday night in Los Angeles -- this weekend could set up for a women's mixed martial arts (MMA) "super fight" before year's end.
