‘Cyborg’ Stands As the Only Credible Opponent for Rousey

It only took Ronda Rousey 14 seconds to dismantle Cat Zingano (Watch Replay Here). Zingano was marketed as Rousey’s toughest fight, and Rousey won in convincing fashion. Many people think Holly Holm should be next to face Rousey. Holm fought Raquel Pennington in the co-main event, and won a hard fought split-decision. Holm still needs a few more fights in the UFC before she even thinks about challenging Rousey. The only opponent that I would be interested in watching Ronda fight is Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino.

How amazing is that staples center crowd?! Wow what an honor to entertain at home… #andSTILL

Justino recently obliterated Charmaine Tweet in just 46 seconds. ‘Cyborg’ truly has some vicious power in her strikes. She hasn’t lost since her MMA debut, amassing a 13-1-1 record. At this point, she is the only one who might be able to give Ronda Rousey a fight. Of course, she would have to be able to cut down to 135 pounds first. Even if the fight takes place at a catchweight, I would still be interested in watching.

I do feel bad for Zingano. She waited so long and went through so much to get a title shot, and it only lasted 14 seconds. A rematch might be in Zingano’s future, but not in her immediate future. Rousey is taking some time off to work in Hollywood, and I think it’s only a matter of time until she leaves MMA for acting. If she does end up retiring, it would be a tragedy if she didn’t get to fight ‘Cyborg’. This is truly the greatest match up for Ronda Rousey.
