If we are ever to see Ronda Rousey fight Cris Cyborg, it looks like it will have to be in a WWE ring and not real. The entertainment will be real but the fighting will be fake. WWE legend, Mick Foley, sounds like he’s trying to get into the head of the WWE chairman, Vince McMahon. Foley wants Cyborg in the WWE because he thinks she could come in as a huge star. I do not disagree with him.
“I had a meeting with Mr McMahon and I specifically told him to keep an eye on this Cyborg vs Nunes fight. She’s going to be larger than life and would make a great WWE superstar down the line. She’ll concentrate first and foremost on this superfight and I think it will be one of the biggest fights in UFC history.”
After Nunes, Cyborg has no one else to fight in the UFC. No one is on her level in her weight class. I’m not saying Cyborg has nowhere to go in MMA if she beats Amanda Nunes, but the pickings are slim.
The foundation for a rivalry between Cyborg and Ronda Rousey is already there and the two could make a huge impact in the WWE if Cris decides she wants to do other things.
