Edmond Tarverdyan Still Wants Ronda Rousey To Fight Cris 'Cyborg'

Share

Cyborg recently won the women's featherweight championship at UFC 214 in July and a dream fight between her and Rousey has always been anticipated by fans.

Current featherweight champion Cris "Cyborg" Justino said that she'd fight Ronda Rousey again, but not in the UFC. Nunes (15-4) was looking to defend her belt for the first time since winning the belt when she beat Meisha Tate.

"That's why if she wants to make a comeback and get one fight, I think she will do the best she's ever done and I think she'll be victorious", he added.

For what it's worth, the image used in her blog has the WrestleMania logo behind them (seen above).

That was until today when her coach Edmond Taverdyan went on "The MMA Hour" and discussed the possibility of Rousey fighting again.

Two years ago, Ronda Rousey was on top of the world. She's been angling for a fight with Holly Holm, who said she is willing to fight Cyborg, but wants the money to be right.

Do you think we will see another dominant fighter come out of the Glendale Fighting Club under the coaching of coach Edmond Tarverdyan in the near future?

Rousey is now 30-years-old and she currently holds a 12-2 record in MMA. If her body does give her one more fight and she really wants to mentally, she might. While, sure, Rousey would be a huge underdog if the match-up was signed, considering she's not a 145'er and has been taken out in her last two fights, chances are it would still be a huge bout. "Because I know Ronda's personality, because she's happy right now and she has a good challenge in front of her that she focuses on".

"Ronda needs a challenge that she really needs to be like this person is no good and I need to prove something to the whole world". What I did, what I could do, the abilities I have, I know and my fighters know. She now has her sights set on defending her belt and knows exactly who she wants as an opponent. I can't say that, it's going to be her decision if she fights.

"She might, but it's 50-50, I would say". It's in her mind. Which was using her judo to take the fight to the ground and submit her opponent, most likely with an armbar.
