Ronda Rousey wants to face Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino inside the cage. However, Rousey prefers to do so under her rules.
Justino, who is still suspended until later this year, has said she cannot drop to bantamweight to meet Rousey, the Strikeforce champion.
Rousey, though, doesn’t feel as those she should have to meet the demands of “Cyborg” for the bout to go down, as she explained on MMA Uncensored Live recently.
I just don’t understand where her sense of entitlement is coming from. She hasn’t fought in like two years – and won a fight that’s really counted. If this happened to a man…you would expect them to come back from their suspension and be like, ‘I want the biggest title fight out there, with all the considerations that I want. And if not given to me, it’s because they’re running from me.’
Rousey does not have a future opponent scheduled, and Justino is suspended until at least December. Strikeforce does seem interested in pairing these two together, so a future bout does seem on the agenda.
