‘Cyborg’ unveils plan to land Rousey fight
Ever since the UFC announced a women's division, Cris 'Cyborg' has been campaigning for a fight against champion Ronda Rousey. However, the former Strikeforce champion fights in the featherweight division, but hopes to put a plan in action to get her in a place where she could fight Rousey in the UFC:
Invicta FC featherweight champion Cristiane Justino has a plan for 2014, which she hopes will lead to UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey by December.
Justino (12-1) recently hired medical consultants to help her start shedding weight in an attempt to make the 135-pound bantamweight limit by midsummer.
The plan calls for Justino, aka “Cyborg,” to defend her 145-pound Invicta title in late April or early May, most likely against Ediane Gomes. Justino would then fight for Invicta's 135-pound title in a quick turnaround, perhaps as early as July.
In previous interviews, the Brazilian fighter hinted she was entering the final fight on the Invicta contract she signed last year. Invicta president Shannon Knapp wouldn't offer details, but said the proposed two title fights wouldn't necessarily require Justino to sign a contract extension.
