Silva: Rousey is not the best

UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is not the greatest female fighter on the planet until she fights Cris 'Cyborg' Venancio says former MMA champion Wanderlei Silva.

In a chat with TMZ Sports, Silva says that the fight fans want to see is the one between Rousey and 'Cyborg' and until that fight happens Rousey can't be considered the best.

The chances of the fight happening are unlikely as the main issue is that Rousey will only fight the Brazilian at the 135 pound weight and no higher. 

Justino is expected to try to come down from her current 145 pound weight and fight as a catchweight at 140 pounds in her next Invicta bout.

If she gets it right, then she will try and get down to the 135 pound weight next year so she can fight Rousey

According to Silva, 'Cyborg' deserves a shot at the title as she hasn't been beaten since 2005.

Silva added that if Rousey fights 'Cyborg' and wins then he will ‘tip his hat’ in recognition that she is the best.
