Former UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg recently spoke to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani earlier this week. This is where she noted that she will be considering her options both in MMA and pro wrestling.
This would be when she becomes a free agent once her current UFC contract expires. Her deal is up after she fights Felicia Spencer on July 27, 2019 at the UFC 240 pay-per-view event. During the interview, she noted that would consider a future in professional wrestling.
“It’s hard to be a pro wrestler,” Justino said. “They work very hard. They’re very athletic. Maybe. I did training before a little bit.” She added that she still has hopes to wrestle former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey.
Cyborg was spotted at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida in late January. This comes after UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes knocked out Cyborg in the first round in the co-headliner of UFC 232 in December to win the UFC Women’s Featherweight Title.
