Despite being on the top of a division of her own in the UFC, Cris Cyborg still has some unfinished business with Ronda Rousey. The reigning UFC women’s featherweight champion has been appealing for a fight with Rousey for a long time now but for one reason or the other, the fight did not go through.
The chances of the fight further slimmed down when Rousey decided to leave UFC and take up professional wrestling in WWE. Rousey is currently one of the major attractions in the WWE right now and she is apparently showing no intentions of making a return.
During a recent interview with ESNews (Via MMA Junkie), Cyborg talked about Rousey.
“I think I don’t need to tell her anything, I think life has taught her a lot of things. I think a lot of things happened through her life and her career. I hope she’s learned something from that. Be humble and respect people. I think this is most important,” Cyborg said.
Not here to judge anybody
Prior to leaving for WWE, Rousey suffered two back to back losses against Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes respectively. She holds a professional record of 12-2 to her name and was undefeated until she locked horns with Holm.
Cyborg went on to say that she does not know Rousey as a person and added that she does not want to judge anyone.
“I don’t know her in person. I think if she’s not coming back to fight and she’s running away, that’s not going to change anything. But I’m not here to judge anybody,” Cyborg added.
As for Cyborg, she is 20-1 in her career and is coming off a first-round stoppage win over Yana Kunitskaya. While there are no other fights scheduled for her as of now, she is expected to fight the winner of Holly Holm vs. Megan Anderson fight soon.
