When asked about whether there's anyone good for ronda rousey to fight Joe rogan recently hinted on The Kevin & Bean radio show that there's a huge announcement coming for the women's division in the next week
Some may think this Huge announcement could mean anything. Either the Cat zingano fight or Holly Holm signing. But cat zingano fight is already expected and wouldn't be HUGE news...Her manager ed soares already told USAToday that she'll be ready to fight by june . nothing huge here and Holly Holm is a good prospect but no way HUGE news. she has barely 3-4k twitter followers and is relatively inexperienced in MMA to be considered a challenge. From the tone of Joe Rogan's voice and his excitement it seems Cyborg just might have signed with the UFC. I believe dana discrediting Cyborg fight was just a negotiating tactic. and Cyborg recently saying she can make 135 and Tito stepping down all point towards this. will cyborg fight rousey in her first fight...? i don't think so. The smartest move and i think what UFC is going to do is -
Rousey - Zingano
this solves 2 problems :- 1. Dana gets to see cyborg make 135 and go through random drugtesting in UFC. if she fails to make 135 or fails a drug test they can just cut her right there without ruining anything.
2. the casual fans get to watch Cyborg fight and see what a credible threat to rousey she is. The last time Cyborg fought on TV was 2 years back and Invicta as much as i'd like to think it's popular...it's not. the casuals might not be much well versed with her. Cyborg needs TV exposure to make this fight as Huge as possible.
Instead of cyborg fighting in invicta and getting a direct shot at rousey it's better to make her fight in UFC instead . dana would want her to go through random drug testing and make 135 before he makes rousey-cyborg and seeing this could be the biggest fight this year and rousey might be leaving for hollywood soon he's going to try to make this happen.
