Gina Carano vs Cris Cyborg - StrikeforceStrikeforce bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey hasn’t even set foot in the cage yet with No. 1 challenger Sarah Kaufman and she’s already being questioned about other fights to be made down the road.

Specifically, people want to know whom Rousey would rather fight: Gina Carano or Cris “Cyborg” Santos.

Rousey got to the position she has, however, not by choosing easy opponents, but by beating them, all of them. She knows that defeating either fighter would be good for her resume, so she has no preference in that regard. Rousey does, however, have a personal preference, depending on the intent of the fight.

“I would equally like to fight both of them, but I strongly dislike Cris Cyborg, whereas I really like Gina Carano,” Rousey chimed in on the topic in a recent video chat leading up to Saturday’s showdown with Kaufman.

“If I was to pick which one I would actually want to beat up, I would want to beat up Cris Cyborg the most, whereas I would want just want a win over Gina. She’s a cool chick. I have so much respect for her.”

Currently, a fight with either is a moot point, living in hypothetical land.

Carano has been busy over the past few years chasing her dreams outside of the cage in Hollywood, making feature films. The last time she set foot in the fight arena was a loss to Cyborg three years ago. She hasn’t expressed much interest in making a return any time soon.

Cyborg, on the other hand, is currently riding out a 12-month suspension for testing positive for steroids after her fight with Hiroko Yamanaka last December. She also has been fighting at 145 pounds, barely making the cutoff for that division.

A fight with Cyborg is the more likely of the two to actually take place anytime in the near future, but even that would be difficult to pull off as long as Rousey holds that bantamweight belt and Cyborg is unwilling to cut off an arm to make 135 pounds.

For now, Rousey will remain focused on the task before her, Sarah Kaufmann, at Saturday’s Strikeforce: Rousey vs. Kaufman in San Diego.
