Cris "Cyborg" Justino is considering taking a boxing super fight according to a post on her Facebook page.

Cyborg took to Facebook to ask her fans what they thought of her taking a fight with boxer Cecilia Braekhus, who has apparently voiced her desire to face the best pound for pound female MMA fighter.

"There's a girl at 145lbs wanting to fight me! Only thing is she doesn't do MMA. She does boxing. She fights at 147lbs and is considered the P4P best in Boxing. Cecilia Braekhus claims Holly Holm turned down a million dollar fight purse not to fight her," she wrote.

The pair have also exchanged tweets about the potential matchup.

She also included a highlight reel for her potential opponent.

Braekhus is a WBA, WBC, WBO, IBF, IBO champion. Cybrog has never fought professionally in boxing, but has done Muay Thai and MMA.

Cyborg is the current Invicta champion and made her UFC debut in May, but has not been booked for either promotion since. She has been undefeated for more than 10 years. She recently voiced her desire to fight Miesha Tate or Ronda Rousey and is campaigning for a 145 pound division to be added to the UFC.

"I do like to fight and my fans have been asking for a stand up war," she said. "Do you think I should test myself in another combat sport against the best boxing has to offer?"

So... what do you guys think? Tell me in the comments below.
