The potential for a women's superfight between Ronda Rousey and Cris "Cyborg" Justino is still alive, according to UFC president Dana White.

Speaking on the UFC Unfiltered podcast, White said the former UFC women's bantamweight champion is interested in fighting the current Invicta and former Strikeforce featherweight champion.

"Ronda wants to fight her," White said. "We'll have to figure out at what weight to fight. But Ronda wants that fight. ... Ronda could do [1]40."

Really can't see Rousey being interested in it either.
Why put her legacy more in jeopardy against someone who's tested positive for anabolics in the past and will out weight her by 30 pounds come fight time.
Rousey can pull in the same PPV numbers against 135ers.

The Brazilian she'll be facing next will more than likely be Nunes, not Cyborg.

I'd like to see this fight happen at some point, but I'm not holding my breath. If it does eventually happen I don't think it'll be anytime soon.

I highly doubt it too but I'd gain a whole new respect for Rousey. I've been very vocal in the past about how annoying and up her own ass she is but she'd be a straight up gangster if she took this fight coming off a loss considering she definitely doesn't need too and nobody would blame her.

Yeah right...and GSP wants Andy, and Randy is going to get Fedor too...superfights don't happen when/how they should so why chase it at this point.

You mean the same girl who fled Strikeforces 145 division to avoid fighting Cyborg? Ronda will never take this fight even if Cyborg made it to 135.

Yep.

I really hope this fight gets done. Cyborg has done more than enough to earn a huge moneymaker of a fight and no other fight can bring her the money like a Ronda fight.

I would argue that this is the biggest fight the ufc can make. Hardcores might argue for a McGregor fight or andy/gsp or Jon jones vs a HW, but when it comes to mainstream, Ronda is just as mainstream as Conor and Cyborg has done just about everything she can to get her name in direct association with Rondas.

I would love to see this on Super Bowl Weekend

Seems like Cyborg is getting screwed by circumstance. Had Ronda retained her belt that fight would have been one of the biggest in mma. Had Holm retained her belt and successfully defended the Cyborg v Holm fight would have been huge... same for if Tate had beaten Nunes. But now with the revolving belt it doesn't seem like she will ever get her big money fight.

Two things are for sure, that fights not leaving the first round and someone's getting knocked out!

Cyborg via 1st round KO (not tko). She'll sleep anyone at 145!!!

I'll admit it, I've argued about this fight with co-workers. I say Cyborg 1st round TKO. I don't think she KO's him outright but I think she takes him down and kicks the shit out of him bad enough for the ref to stop the fight.
