Invicta FC featherweight champion Cristiane Justino, ever the opportunist, stepped into a special booth MetroPCS set up at last weekend’s UFC Fan Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, for fans to record and send video messages to “Rowdy” in the lead-up to UFC 190.
The Brazilian’s message (via MMA Junkie) was swift and to the point.
“Hey Ronda Rousey, I’m coming for you.”
Some of the messages will be aired during the preliminary action of UFC 190, which is set to go down in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Aug. 1, 2015. That’s where Rousey headlines the promotion’s next pay-per-view (PPV) event in a bantamweight title defense opposite Bethe Correia.
Seeing as how MetroPCS is one of Ronda’s major sponsors, I highly doubt “Cyborg’s” message will make the cut.
Justino continued her march toward a much-anticipated title fight against the Olympian by knocking out Faith Van Duin in just 45 seconds of the first round at Invicta FC 13 last Thursday (July 9, 2015) at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Nevada (recap).
And she got paid, quite handsomely.
Now, “Cyborg” will look to get her weight in check in order to make the “Rowdy” bantamweight title fight a reality. While traveling down that road, perhaps the vicious striker wouldn’t mind taking a detour and stopping at 140 pounds to face Miesha Tate.
