Cris Cyborg Calls UFC Darlings Ronda Rousey & Conor McGregor the ‘Most Overrated Fighters’ in MMA (VIDEO)
Cris Cyborg shared some thoughts that may have been controversial three years ago, but now seem like a foregone conclusion. Nevertheless, they’re making waves in the MMA world.
Speaking on “The Domenick Nati Show,” the featherweight champ laid out her case for why Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor are the most overrated fighters in MMA:
“I think you see already Ronda Rousey,” Cyborg said. “Everybody thinks she is the best fighter ever, ever pound for pound, and then you see when she’s fighting real fighters, she has a hard time.
“And then, McGregor. We never see him fight one guy who’s really tough. I would like to see him fight ‘Jacare’ (Ronaldo Souza) and fight Khabib (Nurmagomedov). McGregor has a big name, but we don’t know, we don’t see him in real fight.”
All in all, a pretty measured analysis, so it’s doubtful that too many people will see this as an attack, especially considering Rousey’s out of the game. Maybe Cyborg just wants some of their attention?
