How Close are We to Getting Ronda Rousey vs. Cris "Cyborg" Justino?

Ronda Rousey has been very stead-fast in not wanting to change weight classes to face Cris "Cyborg" Justino. However, it appears that someone - UFC president Dana White - might be the one to get her to change her tune.

"I think we are," said White, in regards to a Rousey-Cyborg fight taking place, during the post-fight press conference for UFC On FX: Browne vs. Bigfoot Friday. "You've been seeing me hanging around with Ronda a lot, so I'm working on it."

Rousey, the Strikeforce 135-pound champion, has said that Cyborg needs to meet her at that weight for the fight to happen. Cyborg, who is still suspended for a failed post-fight drug test until late in 2012, claims she cannot make 135 for health concerns.

When asked if the fight might happen in the UFC, White just offered a smile and moved to the next question.
