Cyborg to Make WWE Debut at Summerslam?


It’s looking like the Cris Cyborg vs. Becky Lynch match at SummerSlam will happen. As we noted last week, sources close to Cyborg’s camp told us that the match was confirmed. WWE has not commented on the story but we were told by another source that it’s happening.

The back-and-forth on Twitter continued after Cyborg defeated Tonya Evinger to win the UFC Featherweight title at Saturday night’s UFC 214 pay-per-view. This deal is likely happening with UFC’s blessing and could be a favor being returned by Dana White because WWE allowed Brock Lesnar to fight for them last July at UFC 200.

Last year, WWE had reached out to Paige VanZant’s management for a match at SummerSlam but talks fell through. They’ve also had talks with Ronda Rousey for a match at WrestleMania last year but they could not work out a deal because of Rousey’s schedule.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
