Ronda Rousey’s fiercest rival Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino feels that a fight between the two superstars must happen.

“I respect all the girls regardless of who they are, but I believe there’s a ‘novela’ [Brazilian soap opera] between Ronda and I that we need to finish. I think that’s a fight everyone wants to watch,” Justino told USA Today’s site MMA Junkie(SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Photos Of Ronda Rousey On The Internet)

The Brazilian-born fighter also added, “I think they ask the same [questions] to her. I think everywhere, they ask the same thing. That’s why I think this fight needs to happen. So that we can finish our careers saying we did that great fight and not that we should have done that fight. We did it. So let’s wait. If she takes that initiative. It’s up to her.” (SLIDESHOW: UFC Star Arianny Celeste Is Nearly Naked For All Her Fans In These Pictures)

Rousey has not returned to fighting since losing at UFC 193 to Holly Holm, and it is unclear at this time when she will return.
