Former Strikeforce champion Cris Cyborg is down to fight anybody, including boxing great Holly Holm.
Reports circulated recently tying Cyborg and Holm to a possible pay-per-view fight. No further details were mentioned in regards to where, by which promotion or when the bout might go down.
In fact, Cyborg is making it pretty clear she has heard nothing about meeting Holm – other than the various social media rumors.
“I like Holly Holm. She is a great boxer, but neither myself nor my manager has spoken to anyone about a fight with Holly,” Cyborg posted on Facebook recently. “I will fight anyone, anytime, anywhere. I would love to fight (Holm) – boxing or MMA – but first she has to sign with Invicta or at least have her manager contact my manager.”
Cyborg, who has been rumored herself for a possible future in the UFC, also took a shot at Ronda Rousey, saying, “Unlike Ronda, at least Holly wants to fight me. I respect that! I’m ready!!”
In her most recent fight, Cyborg lost a Muay Thai bout for the Lion Fight welterweight title last month. Her MMA win streak remains intact, as she has not lost since her debut fight.
