Ronda Rousey says only diehard fans care about a Cyborg bout

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

UFC Women's Bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey isn't putting a bout against Cris Cyborg at the top of her to-do list.

Many pundits believe a UFC pay-per-view bout between current women's 135 pound champ Ronda Rousey and current Invicta FC 145 pound champ Cris Cyborg would be the biggest fight in women's MMA history. Don't count Rousey in that camp. Here's what she had to say about the fight this weekend (via ESPN):

"I mean yeah, she's always on my radar. But I have a really, really full plate and she has nothing to worry about but me...(if Cyborg wants it) "she needs to get off her a-- and try to make (it) happen."

"I have a lot of things going on," Rousey said. "She's fighting random chicks. I mean, Marloes -- it took her longer and more energy to beat Marloes than it took Miesha (in July 2011).

"It's only the MMA diehards that want to see that fight. I have so many things going on. If she really wants to make that fight happen, I'm here."

Is another MMA super fight fading into the distance?

Rousey's next fight is set for the UFC 168 co-main against her fellow Ultimate Fighter coach Miesha Tate.
