Invicta FC featherweight champion Cris “Cyborg” Justino has continued her verbal assault on former UFC bantamweight champion “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey.
Rousey hasn’t competed since last November after she surrendered her title in brutal fashion to Holly Holm at UFC 193, but Justino, who scored yet another devastating stoppage victory over Lina Lansberg at last month’s UFC Fight Night 95, recently called out the ex-champion for a fight at the UFC’s card on super bowl weekend.
Rousey has laid low in the media throughout the last year, and her return has not yet been confirmed, but UFC President Dana White recently said that she was interested in finally facing off with the Brazilian slugger. “Cyborg”, however, says that if the fight is to ever take place, Rousey will need surgery when it’s all said and done:
“My last fight, I broke the nose of the girl in three places,” Cyborg told Jason Whitlock on FS1’s “Speak For Yourself”. “Sure, if I fight her she’ll have to do surgery on her face after. I’m not kidding.”
“Ronda doesn’t say anything,” Cyborg said. “She doesn’t even say my name. She used [UFC president] Dana White and her mother to talk to me, because she knows if she says my name, she’ll have to fight me. She knows this.”
Cyborg Sent Rousey This Fortune Cookie
Prior to Rousey’s sudden downfall last year, fans around the world fathomed over the idea of a potential super fight between her and Justino, hoping to see “Rousey’s” Olympic Judo skills go up against Justino’s tremendous knockout power. “Cyborg”, however, has never seemed to be concerned with Rousey, especially on the feet, and she’s not sure if the former champion will return to form after the loss she suffered:
“I watched her do shadow box and the shadow won,” Cyborg said. “”Maybe that means when Mike Tyson lose his fight by KO, he never the same. Maybe it means that Ronda lost her last fight and she’s never the same. But not because she KOs people. She never did this.”
