It looks like Mick Foley is a fan of current UFC champion Cris Cyborg possibly going to WWE.
Cyborg is the current UFC women’s featherweight champion of the world. She’s preparing for a possible superfight with UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes. Despite her current championship status in the UFC, Cyborg seems to be interested in a WWE career.
She has teased a WWE appearance several times before. It seems as though the Brazilian powerhouse has been keeping in touch with Hall Of Famer Mick Foley as of late, as the man formerly known as Mankind tells TMZ Sports:
“I’ve been trading messages with her the past few nights. I saw she was in New Jersey and so I’m going to be attending a viewing party with Cris Cyborg.”
Foley even revealed that he once told Vince McMahon to keep his eye on Cyborg ahead of her rumored superfight with Nunes:
“You never know. I had a meeting with Mr. McMahon and I told him ‘Keep your eye on this Cyborg-Nunes fight. She’s gonna be larger than life.’
“I think she’d be great – I think she’d make a great WWE Superstar down the line, but she’s concentrating first and foremost on this superfight and I think it’s going to be one of the biggest fights in UFC history.”
