MMA is currently in the era of the super-fights. Superstar and the current UFC lightweight champion, Conor McGregor had started this trend and now everyone else is following up. The biggest potential super-fight in the women’s divisions is between the UFC bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes and the UFC lightweight champion Cris Cyborg. There has been a lot of hearsay about a potential bout and Nunes has finally voiced out her opinion about it.

Nunes is currently on a six fight win streak and has seemed eager about the potential idea about facing Cyborg. Cyborg too has been eager for the fight and had set-out a deadline. She wanted Nunes to fight her on the 7th of July.

In a recent interview given to MMA Junkie, Nunes rejected Cyborg’s deadline and called it unfair. Here’s what she had to say:

Whatever she wants to say right now, she’s going to say, I don’t have anything to say right now. The UFC knows the truth. I don’t really care.​

I can’t be waiting, maybe next month, maybe two months – no, I’m going to fight the next contender. After that, I don’t know. I have a lot of contenders, and we’ll see what the best move is for my career. I’m not going to wait for anybody.

I’m in my camp right now for (Pennington), I’m going to lose weight for 135. My body is going to be small. Do you think I’m supposed to jump into another camp right after a fight? I don’t think that’s fair.

When you finish a fight, you have to rest and go on vacation and recover, and then do another camp. If you’re going to fight at 100 percent, especially go up one weight class, you really have to prepare to go up. And I need time.

If they give it to me, I have no problem to fight Cyborg. But I don’t think it’s fair if they want to make me fight right away. You want to give Cyborg a present, give me (the fight while I’m) small and just come off a camp and fought. I don’t think it’s fair.
