Holly Holm wants UFC to offer title fight against Cris Cyborg

Holly Holm is ready for a featherweight title bout against Cris Cyborg.

HOLLY HOLM vs CRIS CYBORG has been a fight that the Ufc has discussed since Cristiane Justino aka Cris Cyborg came to the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

UFC Champ Holly Holm Down To Fight Cris Cyborg

The Ufc would have to decide at which weight class the two could fight.
Cris Cyborg fought her first fight at a catchweight of 140 pounds.
Holm is a former three division world boxing champion. Holm would welcome a fight with Cris Cyborg who many feel is the most dangerous fighters in WMMA.
“I think the next fight could be with her,” said Cyborg, pointing out that she “already accepted” to face Holm three different times at UFC 184UFC 198, and UFC Fight Night 95, but the fight never happened.

It’s been a long wait for Cyborg to wear UFC gold around her waist after being universally recognized as the best 145-pound women’s fighter for several years.

Following her championship win, Cyborg was almost immediately asked about what matchup might make the most sense for her first title defense and she already had a former champion in mind.

“I’d like to fight Holly Holm,” Cyborg said after her win against Evinger. “I think she’s a great fighter and she’s a bigger girl like me. She’s fought already at 145 and I think all fans are going to like because she’s a striker. Let’s see that, maybe next.”

This fight would be brawler vs kickboxer. Both women are champions in there different MMA disciplines.

UFC president Dana White said he spoke to Holm after the card ended on Saturday night and it appears she is already interested in the idea of facing Cyborg with the title on the line.

“I was just talking to Holly Holm back there and what do you think Holly? It seems like she’s interested,” White revealed.

“I like Holly vs. Cyborg. I think it’s a good fight.”

First things first, White has to sit down with Cyborg and her management team to hopefully hammer out a new contract considering the new women’s featherweight champion only has a few months left on her current deal.

Once the two sides come to an agreement on a new contract, then White could begin looking at a potential Cyborg vs. Holm fight for later this year.
