During a recent edition of The MMA Hour, Cris Cyborg discussed a potential fight with Holly Holm.
Cyborg is currently set to fight Tonya Evinger for the vacant UFC featherweight title later this month at UFC 214. Holm, meanwhile, is coming off a win over Bethe Correia in her return to bantamweight, but fought Germaine de Randamie for the inaugural 145-pound belt.
“I think the next fight could be with (Holm),” Cyborg said. “I think (it’s) a great fight for the fans. I think she’s the big name for the next fight. She’s a great fighter.”
Cyborg (17-1) has bested both Leslie Smith and Lina Lansberg while fighting inside the Octagon. Holm (11-3) is a former bantamweight champion, having won the title vs. Ronda Rousey.
