UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes and reigning women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg have been negotiating a super fight for some time now. However, it would now appear that the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) may be looking to put together another super fight as well.
Amanda Nunes and Cris Cyborg have yet to come to an agreement. The two were once considering a fight for UFC 224, but the match never come to be.
Since then, Nunes has revealed that she is interested in a fight around Dec. of this year. Meanwhile, Cyborg has been adamant that she wants to fight sooner rather than later, perhaps in Sept.
Now MiddleEasy has come forward to report a rumor that the UFC is looking to lock down Cyborg vs. Nunes for a live pay-per-view event this Oct. or Nov. Beyond that, the UFC allegedly wants to include a super fight between the featherweight and bantamweight champions on the card.
Check out MiddleEasy’s original report below:
“With Amanda Nunes vs. Cris Cyborg looking like a done deal, rumors are the crossover fight may get bumped to UFC pay-per-views in October or November. In the UFC circles, the bantamweight champ vs. featherweight champ is being pegged as a solid co-main event to a PPV.”
