Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino had such a great debut in her first UFC fight Saturday night, she woke up on Sunday and started trolling for the top. After making quick work of Leslie Smith with a technical knock-out in only 81 seconds, Cyborg posted the following tweet and Facebook post calling out Ronda Rousey.
Well, that’s one way to make a statement. UFC has their first event in New York City in over 20 years scheduled for next November, and there’s hope a Cyborg-Rousey match could be a huge headliner. Justino has made no secret of her desire to take on Rousey, who lost her Bantamweight title to Holly Holm last November. Getting her first fight in the UFC Octagon (and winning) this weekend was a great first step.
The next thing for Dana White and Co. to work on is figuring out a weight for them to fight at, but, with six months to go, there’s plenty of time. As far as Cyborg is concerned, that’s just fine. There’s sure to be a lot more trolling to go, and we can’t wait to see what else she comes up with as she builds her UFC record in the coming months.
