This is a big event for not only Invicta FC but for Cristiane Justino and the UFC. It’s well known that the UFC wants to book Justino in their world famous octagon, but also against their biggest superstar. Reigning, defending, undisputed, UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.
Fans and Dana White have been wanting to see this fight, but there are some problems in the way of that fight taking place.
Justino is under contract with Invicta, but also she fights at a different weight class than Rousey. White stated in an interview earlier this year stating that if Justino can get down to Bantamweight then she could fight Rousey.
Rousey fights next month that UFC 190, so if both women win then we could get a super fight.
