Cris Cyborg Says She Would Drop in Weight to Fight Ronda Rousey

Former Strikeforce women's champion Cris "Cyborg" Justino remains suspended by the California Athletic Commission. However, she continues to discuss a potential blockbuster fight with Ronda Rousey.

The problem comes in where the two would meet. Rousey, the Strikeforce bantamweight champion, says that Cyborg needs to come to 135 pounds to make the bout happen. Cyborg, a former Strikeforce featherweight champ, isn't capable of doing that.

"The 145-pound division is my category, but I can drop until 140 pounds to fight her," said Cyborg, in a recent interview with Fighters Only Magazine. "It does not depend on me, it is up to the event. My business is to fight inside the cage and do not trash talk outside the fence."

Justino is eligible to fight again in December when her suspension runs out. She is 10-1 in her career with one no-contest.
