In an interview with MMA Fighting, Cris Cyborg said that she’s interested in facing Ronda Rousey in the WWE, even if it means she’s booked to lose. Here are highlights:

On Ronda Rousey’s run in WWE: ”I watched her perform in WWE. She went a different path, right? Because she lost and didn’t return to MMA, everybody saw she’s not (built) for MMA. If she was, she would have returned even with a loss, like every other athlete does. Losing is part of the sport. She can do whatever she wants in WWE, they decide what happens beforehand. But I believe she’s happy. It’s a difficult job because she has to act and that’s not easy, for sure, but she’s doing well.”

On if she would face Rousey in WWE: ”I think Ronda’s biggest fear was losing to me, so if we were to do it in WWE she would have to win. I don’t have such a big ego, but if we were to put on a show for the fans, something like that, no problem. But I don’t see myself in it now. She would only accept it that way. I believe she would only do it that way. No problem. I know what would happen in a real fight.”
