Cris Cyborg parted ways with UFC last week after coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Felicia Spencer at UFC 240 which took place in Edmonton, Canada last month.
Although many fans wanted to see her fight current featherweight and bantamweight champion, Amanda Nunes, next, it’s highly unlikely that fans will be able to see the rematch anytime soon.
However, Cyborg’s coach Jason Parillo says that he only wants to see her fight Amanda Nunes next.
“No, only Amanda Nunes. That’s the only fight that gets me excited,” Parillo said to Sirius XM. “That’s the only fight I want to see her fight, that’s the only fight she needs to be fighting. Unfortunately, I don’t have any control over that, I’m not her manager, I’m not her confidante. I’m her coach, I help her get ready for her fights. But, the only fight I have any interest is Amanda Nunes.
“I’m heartbroken about it,” Parillo continued. “Because I really do believe she can beat her, and I believe that Amanda has such amazing victories, she’s really at the top of the food chain of the women’s division, and that’s where I believe Cris belongs and that’s where I believe she should be.” (H/T – BJPenn.com)
