With Cris Cyborg and Amanda Nunes in disagreement about the date of a possible meeting in the octagon, Cyborg said she’s willing to grant her fellow UFC champion her wish of fighting in December – but she wants another fight first.

Talks of a super fight between the UFC’s women’s 145-pound and 135-pound champions intensified earlier this year, amid calls from Nunes and her camp. A lot of back-and-forth ensued, but the two ultimately ended up defending their belts against different opponents, and talks of the match had somewhat quieted as of late.

That was, until this week, when they started battling on social media again. The problem, this time, wasn’t about whether they would fight, but when: Nunes (16-4 MMA, 9-1 UFC) posted a picture of a signed contract for Dec. 29, when UFC 232 is set to take place, while Cyborg (20-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) pushed for a fight on Sept. 8 at UFC 228.

Is it really that hard for her to get a fight in the UFC? I wonder if she just dips over to Invicta and retires a unrecognized champ. Maybe she goes boxing? It's interesting that it insinuates that her contract is time based and not fight based. Wonder why. Wonder if her past PED usage has anything to do with that.

There's rumors of boxing and WWE.

Its just plan silly to have a 145lbs women's division.

In all honesty an Atomweight Division (105lbs) would at least triple the numbers of 145.

Seo Hee Ham
Rena Kubota
Jinh Yu Frey
Tessa Simpson
Ashley Cummins
Hericio Turbercio
Kanna Asakura
Ayaka Hamasaki
Mina Kurobe
Minna Grussander
Kyra Batara
Amber Brown
Lisbeth Silva Lopez
Satomi Takano
Tomo Maesawa
Jeong Park
Janaisa Morandin
Catherine Costigan

Then you could potentially take the small 115ers; Waterson, Penne

I don't think WWE would want her long term. Maybe for a 3 month run.

Boxing? There's not that much money there for her.

UFC is her best bet.

Maybe she should go to Rizin. The women's superfight I want to see is Gabby vs Cyborg

Incentivize women to move up a weight class...guaranteed if Nunes wins then the division will instantly be flooded with girls who don't want to cut to 135 any more.

Atom weight makes much more sense than 145. 145 is a nothing division really, like how many legit 145 women are there in the ufc ? 5 if that.

They’re best friends, they would never fight one another.

Are they best friends like Rashad and Jon Jones or like Anderson and machida? Money helps everything if it's the prior
