Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight champion Cris Cyborg has been attempting to pin down an opponent for her first title defense ever since her title winning stoppage over Tonya Evinger at UFC 214. Now the fighter has come forward with a statement concerning the recent news of her upcoming match up.
Cyborg is now set to take on former UFC bantamweight champion Holly Holm at UFC 219. Holm recently pulled herself out of a three fight losing streak with a stunning question mark kick knockout over Bethe Correia. Now the fighter will be moving to the featherweight division to challenge Cyborg for her title.
Taking to Instagram, Cyborg recently stated:
