Cris Cyborg Justino clearly hasnt abandoned the idea of fighting Ronda Rousey. Jorginho Chelsea Jersey .Justino went on the offensive against her longtime rival in a lengthy social media post Friday, calling for the two to fight at UFC 205 on Nov. 12.Justinos post played off a recent column penned by Rousey for Refinery29.com titled A Lesson in Imperfection. Among other things, Justino questioned Rousey as a role model.When we worry about marketing an image created by the media, our bigger goals are sacrificed, she wrote on Facebook. You cant look up because your face is in a pillow after being the bully and getting your ass kicked. Being humble enough to not believe the hype around you can be difficult.When I see little girls rocking their DNB shirts, she continued, referring to Rouseys trademark, which stands for Do Nothing B----, and Reebok shoes in the supermarket, I think about what poor examples of sportsmanship you have displayed. I think about you cursing [Holly Holm] at the weigh-ins, refusing to shake Miesha Tates hand following your victory, and all of the mean things you have said about me and my family.A fight between Justino (16-1) and Rousey (12-1) tantalized fight fans for years. The two went back and forth in headlines, where Rousey was especially critical of a positive drug test Justino submitted in 2011.The matchup never came to fruition, though, mostly because Justino couldnt make Rouseys 135-pound weight limit. Justino fights at 145 pounds, and the UFC and Rousey were never willing to book a catchweight bout.The chances of them meeting took a serious hit in November, when Rousey suffered a stunning knockout loss to Holm at UFC 193. Rousey has been relatively quiet since; however, UFC president Dana White has repeatedly said she will return at some point near the end of this year.Meanwhile, Justino made her UFC debut in May, knocking out Leslie Smith in the first round of a 140-pound fight at UFC 198 in Curitiba, Brazil. The UFC still does not promote Justinos 145-pound weight class.According to White, Rousey will receive an immediate title shot at 135 pounds when she does return. The belt is now held by Amanda Nunes, who submitted Tate at UFC 200. Justino, who does not have a fight scheduled, said she would like to see Rousey fight her instead, at UFC 205 in Madison Square Garden.Im not trying to inspire you to suddenly become a better person, or become anything youre not, Justino wrote. But there was a time in your life when you told people you wanted to fight me. Maybe you didnt quite understand the way the world worked then, but you also didnt care what anyone thought.I guess what Im trying to tell you is that you dont need to be the champ to fight me.The media made you out to be the greatest female fighter of all time, and that is beautiful, because now everyone knows the real reason why you avoided a fight against Cris Cyborg.

NeNe really gave us a boost off the bench. And AK (Ashley Knight). I mean what can you say? To finish with 16 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks in 23 minutes was just phenomenal. Our bench, from NeNe, to AK, to Coco (Knight), was big, big, big for us tonight. Meo was unstoppable. It was just a good all-around team effort.Alabama closes out the Patrick Harrington Classic on Tuesday when it takes on UTEP at 7 p.m. CT. ' ' '
