Video: Ronda Rousey 'not really' impressed by Cris Cyborg's 46 second knockout win at Invicta FC 11

[Cyborg's] not in the UFC. If she would like to come to the UFC and fight at 135, then yes, I would [like to fight her]. [She won] against some chick that I beat like my second pro-fight ever, in 40 seconds. Not really (impressive)."

The hot topic after Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey's epic 14 second submission victory over Cat Zingano in the main event of UFC 184 (highlights here) -- which took place last Saturday night (Feb. 28, 2015) inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, California -- was who "Rowdy" would be facing off against next. In an interview with Ariel Helwani, the UFC champ once again noted she would like to take a break from mixed martial arts (MMA), but when she returns she would like to face off against either Holly Holm or Bethe Correia. When Helwani asked whether Rousey was interested in fighting Invicta FC featherweight champ Cris "Cyborg" Justino -- who defended her belt via a 46 second knockout over Charmaine Tweet this past Friday night -- "Rowdy" once again reiterated that "Cyborg" does not fight for UFC and needs to make the 135 pound limit. The UFC champ also gave her thoughts on the Brazilian's victory this past weekend, noting she was not very impressed with "Cyborg's" knockout over a woman she defeated handily in her second pro fight.
