As reported by FIGHT SPORTS Cris Cyborg is in Detroit, Michigan to support Claressa Shields ahead of her fight with Nikki Adler tomorrow night on Showtime. At a press conference ahead of the fight at the MGM Grand Resort, the UFC Featherweight Champion was about a possible appearance at the new Little Caesars Arena in Detroit at UFC 218.
The new champion claimed that “I would like (to be) I asked for fight Holly Holm (here) I think it will be perfect. She come from Boxing. I’m here Detroit. I’m asking for. Lets see what will happen” Cyborg also noted that UFC President Dana said in an interview that he would like to make Cyborg V Holly Holm, and maybe that can be there in Detroit.
These comments plus Cat Zingano calling out Cyborg, and Cyborg saying that the fans would rather see Amanda Nunes in the octagon instead of Zingano, make it clear that there is a bullseye on the back of the new champion.
