Cris Cyborg to Ronda Rousey: 'I'm coming to get you'

Esther Lin/Strikeforce

Former Strikeforce women's champ Cris Cyborg is still angling for a fight with UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

Invicta champ Cris Cyborg wants Ronda Rousey to know that she's still around. The two ladies have been engaged in a war of words for years now but they've never fought because Cyborg didn't think she could make 135. After Rousey's UFC 168 win over Miesha Tate, she offered up another threat on twitter:

Cyborg (12-1, 1 NC) was a dominant 145-pound champion in Strikeforce until she tested positive for steroids and sat out for a year. With Tito Ortiz acting as her manager, she tried to get a bout with Rousey in the UFC after Strikeforce closed down but insisted it be at a catchweight or at 145. Obviously that didn't happen.

I don't think there's much to be made of this. If she could make 135, I'm sure the UFC would bring her in and give her the shot. But she won't. Instead, Rousey is scheduled to meet Sara McMann in the main event of UFC 170, while Cyborg will continue plying her trade at 145 in Invicta.
