At UFC 214, Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino (18-1, 1 NC) realized a dream when she TKO’d Tonya Evinger to lay claim to the vacant UFC featherweight championship. The newly crowned featherweight champ confirmed her status as one of the pound-for-pound best female fighters in her violent performance. At the post fight presser, Cyborg expressed her willingness to get back in the octagon sooner rather than later– however, the lack of female featherweight signees in the UFC has left fight fans concerned with who might be next for the Brazilian champ.
According to Dana White, former UFC bantamweight champion Holly Holm “seems interested”.
At the UFC 214 post-fight press conference, when asked about Cyborg’s future and what’s next for the champ, Dana White said,
I was just talking to Holly Holm back there and ‘what do you think Holly?’ It seems like she’s interested. I like Holly vs Cyborg. I think it’s a good fight.
Fight fans, does a potential Holly Holm vs Cris Cyborg fight interest you?
