WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley is high on UFC’s Women’s Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg and see’s her as the next UFC star turned WWE star.
Foley told TMZ Sports he’s been lobbying Vinc McMahon himself to consider signing Cyborg.
“I had a meeting with Mr. McMahon and I specifically told him to keep your eyes on that Cyborg vs. Nunes fight,” said Foley.
View his entire interview with TMZ Sports in the video below.
While the Cyborg vs. Nunes fight is still in the works, Foley believes that, when it does it will propel Nunes into a new level of fame.
But what is Cyborg goes to the WWE? Well, it could result in a “dream match” that was unable to be fulfilled at the UFC, Rousey vs. Cyborg.
Cyborg herself recently spoke to MMA Fighting about going up against Rousey in the WWE, a match she would lose.
“I think Ronda’s biggest fear was losing to me, so if we were to do it in WWE she would have to win,” Cyborg said. “I don’t have such a big ego, but if we were to put on a show for the fans, something like that, no problem.”
“I know what would happen in a real fight,” said Cyborg
While that might sound like a less than enthusiastic response to working with the WWE in the future, Cyborg has demonstrated that she does have some love and interest in the business. At the very least, she’s watching.
She recently tweeted Rousey’s Summerslam opponent Alexa Bliss, offering to train her for the Rousey fight.
Let me know # @AlexaBliss_WWE if you need help training Judo takedown and armbar defense!

And, just around last year’s Summerslam season, she challenged Becky Lynch to a fight.

Which Lynch accepted.
I've never backed down from a challenge. Come at me bro. https://t.co/vbi7miqnRC

Cyborg even brought WWE COO Triple H into it.

To which Lynch replied
Are you sure Dana would let you? Seeing as he doesn't seem to let you do much else? https://t.co/M5cDwnbGXx

When nothing came of it, Cyborg tweeted a theory that Rousey – who was still just rumored to sign with the WWE – was to blame.

So, there, you have it. If Cyborg does decide to go to the WWE, she’s got two feuds waiting for her. Oh, make that three as current NXT star Shayna Baszler and Cyborg tangled in Strikeforce back in 2009. Baszler lost that fight back then.
