For years, Ronda Rousey declined to talk of a fight with Cris Cyborg due to how they weren’t in the same weight class. However, Rousey’s victor, Holly Holm, is willing to overlook that.
In a recent interview with MMA Fighting, the UFC Bantamweight Champion said she’d be happy to go to featherweight to face off against Cyborg: “I know with the UFC, they don’t have that [featherweight] division, so if that was something that they were going to put together, I’m not against it. I’m open to it. I have fought at heavier weights in boxing. I love Cyborg. She’s awesome. I finally got to get to know her this year. Whatever Cyborg wants to do, I support it. You want to stay at a heavier weight, you don’t want to go to 140? Whatever she wants to do, I’m all about it. I haven’t really thought about it too much.”
Holm is scheduled for a rematch with Rousey this summer but if she were to win, it sounds like she already has her next battle set.
