Cris Cyborg says Ronda Rousey was more dangerous than Kayla Harrison
Bellator featherweight champion Cyborg is uncertain if she’ll ever get the chance to face off with Kayla Harrison, but she definitely welcomes the opportunity. Harrison has been very dominant during her fight career while Cyborg still hasn’t seen enough to make her believe that the two-time Olympic gold medalist in judo would serve as a serious threat to her.

In fact, the veteran featherweight actually believes former UFC champion Ronda Rousey, an Olympic bronze medalist in judo before transitioning to mixed martial arts would have been a tougher challenge if they had ever met in the cage.
“I was supposed to fight Ronda Rousey before and I was training for a camp,” Cyborg explained. “The first thing you train in judo is learn to fall. Because when you’re going to fight judo, maybe you’re going to fall yes, but you have to know what to do after. I believe Ronda Rousey was more dangerous than Kayla. Her transitions were fast, her technique was fast and I know [Kayla] got a gold medal in the Olympics. But I think it’s a different level about the speed, about the transitions for the submissions.”
Cyborg respects that Harrison could be a dangerous opponent in some ways, there are still more than enough means in her overall game that just haven’t been exposed yet.
“People say, ‘She’s going to take you down,’” Cyborg said. “I believe in the fight wrestling can beat judo and if she takes me down, yes but I can [take her down], too. It’s an MMA fight. I think she should care more about the striking. Because if you see a couple of her fights at what 11-0, the girls fighting her are scared of the takedown and scared to punch for takedown.
