Things that are relentless include Joanna Jedrzejczyk, night and day, and Cris Cyborg trash talking Ronda Rousey. During a recent conversation with TMZ Sports, the greatest fighter in women’s MMA was asked a blunt question.
“Is Ronda Rousey scared of you?” asked the interviewer. “Is that why she will not take the fight with you?”
Cyborg’s reply was blunter still. Note, English is not Cris Cyborg’s first language, but she conveys her points perfectly.
“She knows I’d kill her,” said Cyborg. “She know the same thing that happen with Holly Holm and her, will be worse with me. She know this. She know this.
“She no fight for the belt first time. Dana White, he gave to her one belt. And she’s fighting in the UFC, the big promotion. They make her. She’s an American girl. She pretty. She’s Olympic girl. Good for sale. And they make her. You cannot change this. But you cannot tell me she’s the best in the world without fighting me.”
The interviewer then offered another question – what would your message to Ronda Rousey be?
“Ronda, say my name,” said Cyborg. “Say my name – you make this fight happen.”
“Same way you talk to guys, you have to have the balls. Okay? She speak a lot of things about me. And why she don’t go in Octagon with me, fight with me? Man, she don’t have. She don’t have. She don’t have.
“And I know – girls, of course – she no have. But when you speak about someone, you have to go, ‘No, f*** that, I’m gonna fight her. Let’s go Octagon, make this fight happen.’ You have to do this – man, this is her job.”
