Cris “Cyborg” Justino (pictured) may have lost her Muay Thai bout to Jorina Baars for Lions Fight’s featherweight title, but that isn’t deterring Justino from continuing her relentless pursuit of UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey – as it shouldn’t considering Justino wasn’t beaten in an MMA scrap.
On the most recent edition of “Inside MMA,” Justino reiterated her stance that Rousey is ducking her, particularly since Rousey has been adamant that she will only fight at 135 pounds, but did an about-face last month by saying she’ll make a one-time exception to meet Gina Carano at a heavier weight.
“Ronda, she did the interview and she said, “145 for Gina,'” said Justino. “Only for Gina, not for me, and I think she run from me. And I think she’s a fake fighter. Because when you’re a true fighter, you fight everyone.”
While the Brazilian continues to hunt down Rousey, “Rowdy” is currently busy building her mainstream brand by filming the “Entourage” movie. She plans to defend her throne this summer, presumably against Cat Zingano.
Justino, meanwhile, is sticking to her ambitious plan of defending her Invicta FC featherweight crown in May, drop down to win the Invicta FC bantamweight belt this summer, then challenge Rousey in December.
However, Justino’s fantasy fight is…
“Me and Ronda at 145, it’s perfect,” Justino stated.
Yeah, good luck with that…
