UFC News: Ortiz thinks Cyborg will have the same result on Rousey like Holm

One of the best fighters in the history of MMA, Tito Ortiz takes a shot on Rousey by believing that Cris Cyborg of Invicta will win against Ronda Rousey.

“Cris Cyborg is the pound-for-pound best woman in the world, I believe,” Ortiz said.

With that, Ortiz believes that Cris Cyborg will do the same thing that Holly Holm did to Rousey.

“Holly Holm did what Cris would have done to Ronda. Holly Holm got that chance. She’s a great woman champion. But Cris is one of the most vicious fighters in the world.”

“She just attacks,” Ortiz said. “There’s no woman fighter in the world like her at all. She’s bred to fight. She comes from Brazil and Brazilians are the toughest fighters in the world. She loves this. This is fun for her.”

If there is a chance for Ortiz to name the top three ladies MMA, he would put Rousey, Cyborg and Holm.

“Just keep giving her fights as the UFC did with Ronda,” Ortiz said. “Ronda just kept getting fights, getting fights. The other girls huff and puff and scream and yell. Those are the ones that are the weakest, but they look good for pay-per-view, they look good for interviews. When it’s fight time, Holly Holm, Ronda Rousey, Cris Cyborg are at the top of the world. The rest of the women are looking up at them.”

Now if there is a chance for Cyborg and Holm to fight, both ladies are eager to show what they can do together once faced up in the Octagon.

“Holly Holm said she would come up and Cris would cut that extra five pounds,” Ortiz said. “That extra five pounds is hurting her a little bit, but Cris is willing to do it. Just to give it to the fans. That’s the kind of fighter Cris is, to give the fans fights. That’s what she wants. She’ll fight anybody, man.”
