Rosa has been touted as one of the best in-ring female performers in recent memory and she truly made a name for herself in a Lights Out match against Britt Baker earlier in the year.
On top of that, Thunder Rosa is a legitimate fighter as she has competed in the MMA world as well. Her last fight took place on November 8, 2019, where Thunder Rosa squared off against Nadine Mandiau at Combate Americas: San Antonio, dropping a unanimous decision.
On this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Wardlow and Jake Hager squared off against each other in a MMA Rules Cage match. While the response to the fight was mixed, it seems MMA legend Cris Cyborg certainly got interested in the idea.
The current Bellator Featherweight champion took to Twitter and revealed her interest in going to AEW and facing off against Thunder Rosa in a female MMA style match.
Is @AEW going to be doing Women style MMA bouts too?! @thunderrosa22 #AEWDynamite
Thunder Rosa would reply to Cyborg and stated that it would be a cool idea. With AEW’s increased on focus on pushing the envelope when it comes to women’s wrestling, we certainly wonder if Thunder Rosa will ever face Cris Cyborg in an MMA style match in AEW.
