Cris 'Cyborg' will support Alexis Davis against Ronda Rousey at UFC 175 despite wanting to be the one to 'shut Ronda up'

Cyborg wants Davis to do a good job and said that Rousey is a "one trick pony".

Although she yet can't make 135 lbs, Cris Cyborg Justino still eyes a future bout with Ronda Rousey and talked with about the upcoming fight for the UFC bantamweight title between Rousey and challenger, Alexis Davis.

In next Saturday's fight at UFC 175, the Invicta FC featherweight champion will support the challenger against her nemesisL

I think that Davis has a good ground game, I know the people who work with her. She needs to work on her defense of takedowns and armbars, which are all Ronda has. The better plan for Alexis would be keep the fight standing. Everybody knows what Ronda is going to do. She only has her armbar, but the girls always let it happen. I will support Alexis, I want her to have a good fight, it's going to be a good opportunity for her. Actually, I want to shut Ronda up but I want Alexis to do a good job.

Ronda Rousey vs. Alexis Davis will be the co-main event of UFC 175, the fourth defense of Rousey's UFC 135-pound belt. Cyborg has no fight currently scheduled in Invicta FC.
