Cris Cyborg Wants to Fight Amanda Nunes in UFC vs. Bellator Crossover Bout

Cris Cyborg Wants to Fight Amanda Nunes in UFC vs. Bellator Crossover Bout

Bellator women's featherweight champion Cris Cyborg said she's open to a cross-promotion rematch with UFC double champion Amanda Nunes after losing their hyped first encounter by first-round knockout in December 2018.

Cyborg, who joined Bellator in September 2019, told TMZ Sports in an interview released Tuesday she's hopeful UFC President Dana White would consider the idea.

Cyborg added she's already run the idea by Bellator President Scott Coker.

Even if White is interested in making the bout happen, both women already have fights scheduled in the near future that would likely prevent a rematch taking place until 2021.

Nunes is scheduled to put her UFC Women's Featherweight Championship on the line against Megan Anderson at UFC 256 on Dec. 12.
