UFC CEO Lorenzo Feritta told ESPN.com he has been in negotiations with Justino’s representatives the past two weeks. The potential deal, which has not been signed, would keep Justino, 29, under the Invicta FC banner — while also keeping alive a potential megafight against UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey in the Octagon.

“We certainly have an interest in Cyborg fighting for us,” Fertitta said. “We feel that down the road, there is a possibility of a big fight between her and Ronda, but there are still a lot of things that need to happen.

“She needs to prove she can get down to 135 pounds before we would take the risk of making that fight happen. Obviously, if she came over and didn’t make the weight, it would be a disaster.”

“I feel fairly positive if Cyborg can get to 135 pounds, we will be able to make that fight,” Fertitta said. “[The Rousey fight] has to happen at 135 pounds.”

 

If this gets signed this will surely mean that if she proves she can make weight then the fight of all fights will happen.
