UFC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg, the greatest fighter in women’s mixed martial arts history, attended Cecilia Braekhus boxing Kali Reis. Saturday night. It now appears as if she intent on borrowing a page from the book of Conor. No, she has no plans to through a hand truck through a window. But she would like a high-profile boxing match. McGregor made over $100 million for one boxing match; if it makes dollars, it makes sense.
“Of course, I need time for training,” said Cyborg to Yahoo Sports’ Kevin Iole, as transcribed by Ken Pishnafor MMA Weekly. “I think I need four, six months training. Gonna be maybe perfect because I have two fights left MMA and then I can focus on boxing.”
“After this [contract] I will do a boxing fight. I have just two fights left.”
However, Cyborg doesn’t want to quit the Octagon.
“I would like to work with them,” she said. “If the UFC work it and I can do the boxing fight and still have the belt and come back like McGregor did.”
If she had to temporarily leave the UFC, regaining her belt would be “no problem.”
