Half of a potential super-fight between UFC champions is signed, according to Cris Cyborg.
The reigning UFC featherweight champion posted on social media that she has agreed to meet UFC bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes during International Fight Week this coming July.
“I have agreed with my management to fight Amanda Nunes July 7th in Las Vegas during International Fight Week,” Cyborg posted. “I will let her finalize her side of the bout now.”
Cyborg stretched her win streak with a victory over Holly Holm that closed out 2017. She won the title with a finish of Tonya Evinger.
Nunes, meanwhile, is coming off a victory over Valentina Shevchenko. She claimed the belt when she defeated Miesha Tate, while also scoring a defense vs. Ronda Rousey.
She has yet to make a public statement regarding the potential fight, but did take to Twitter and posted “My followers went up overnight….Did I miss something.”
