Cyborg (19-1) was initially hesitant when it came to the rumored superfight against the UFC bantamweight champion. The Brazilian argued that she wants Nunes to first fight a woman who has competed at 145-pounds over the last year in order to prove she belongs in the division. It looks like the 32-year-old has now given in and is ready to fight Nunes at the UFC’s biggest event of the year in July.
Take a look at Cyborg’s announcement below:
