10 Current MMA Fighters Who Could Jump To Professional Wrestling

9. Cris "Cyborg" Justino

If women's MMA had its own Mount Rushmore, Cris "Cyborg" Justino would have two granite chins. Cyborg has a relentless striking style that was so dominant, she had trouble finding an opponent willing to fight her. After leaving a shaky relationship with the UFC, Cyborg landed at Bellator and quickly snagged the Featherweight Telt from Julia Budd.

Cyborg is still at the top of her game, but she has been in the game awhile. She is 36 and has been competing professionally since 2005. There isn't much in the realm of MMA she hasn't accomplished. The next couple of years would be a window of opportunity to try her hand in the squared circle. Cyborg's English isn't exactly fluid, but with a good mouthpiece manager at her side, she could work as a monster heel who cuts a swath through the division. With her natural athleticism and fight I.Q., Cyborg could easily start working enhancement and dark matches, working her way up the card as she goes.

Fantasy Match: This one's easy. Since they never fought in the cage, Cris Cyborg vs. Ronda Rousey in an "I Quit" match.
