The UFC enterprise is crossing over into the world of professional wrestling now more than ever, with the women’s division now being talked about in the rumour mill.
Former SmackDown Live Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has been involved in an ongoing social media battle with Cris Cyborg – the current Featherweight champion.
After winning her fight against Tonya Evinger at UFC 214, Cyborg took to Twitter to call out the Irish Lasskicker to which Lynch had a reply of her own.

The pair going at it in the squared circle at SummerSlam would make for an interesting narrative and given that Ronda Rousey is a firm supporter of pro wrestling the long-term story may be an even more interesting one.
Also, Jon Jones who defeated Daniel Cormier to become the Light Heavyweight Champion at UFC 214 called out current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar following his win, saying:
“Brock Lesnar. If you want to know what it feels like to get your a** kicked by somebody who weighs 40lbs less than you, meet me in the octagon!”
Currently The Beast Incarnate is reportedly reluctant to put pen to paper on a new WWE contract and is set to let his current one expire, to add further fuel to the fire he reentered United States Anti Doping Agency pool to drug test current fighters.
