Former UFC Champion Teases Move To WWE/AEW?

The women's division should be worried...

Cris Cyborg

Former UFC Women's Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg has teased a potential move to either WWE or AEW once her UFC contract expires, in an interview with ESPN's Ariel Helwani.

Cyborg, whose real name is Cristiane Justino VenĂ¢ncio, yesterday revealed that she will be testing the free-agent market after her next MMA fight, set to take place at UFC 240 against Felicia Spencer on July 27th.

The former Strikeforce and Invicta FC world champion has been making her presence felt in the wrestling world for the past few months, calling out the likes of Ronda Rousey & Becky Lynch on Twitter, and even visited the WWE Performance Center in January.

Cyborg was also in attendance for All Elite Wrestling's 'Double or Nothing' pay-per-view in Las Vegas last month and spoke of her admiration for the performers when we caught up with her after the event.

In the interview with Helwani on Monday, she didn't rule out a future in pro wrestling and even teased a potential dream match (which never happened in MMA) between herself & former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey, saying:-

"It's hard to be a pro wrestler. They work very hard. They're very athletic. Maybe."
