One fight Ronda Rousey fans never got to see was her against Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino. Evidently, Cyborg is so disappointed she never faced Rousey in an MMA fight that she is willing to follow her into pro-wrestling and face her at WrestleMania.
Earlier this year, Cyborg and Becky Lynch went back-and-forth on Twitter and teased a possible match at SummerSlam:
Cyborg vs. Rousey at WrestleMania
Cyborg recently spoke with FloCombat about the possibility of facing Rousey in a wrestling ring.
“I think Ronda Rousey in the WWE would be an amazing thing,” Cyborg told FloCombat on Monday. “I just recently attended my first WWE event live when RAW was in [Los Angeles] filming and I absolutely loved the experience. If she really is done fighting and not returning to the UFC, I think the idea of a WWE match between us for the fans is still something everyone could get excited about.”
“Could the Brazilian Vale Tudo Fighter beat the American shoot fighting champion? That seems like a pretty natural storyline to a WrestleMania if you ask me. I know 70,000 fans who would still be willing to pack a stadium to see Cyborg vs. Rousey even if it took place in a three-rope ring instead of a cage.”
While a match with Rousey seems unlikely, Cyborg does have one pro-wrestler interested in facing her:
