Cris Cyborg made her UFC debut Saturday against Leslie Smith at UFC 198, but she disappointed many fans by staying quiet about archrival Ronda Rousey. On Sunday morning, however, she rekindled the superfight fire with a Facebook post directed at Rousey:

The MMA world has clamored for a Cyborg-Rousey superfight for years, but it has long felt out of reach because of the UFC's refusal to bring Cyborg into the fold. With Cyborg now on board, if only temporarily, it seems more plausible...albeit still unlikely.

It's not known what lies ahead for either woman, but maybe the UFC can put together the one fight fans want most.
