- Cris Cyborg and Claressa Shields faced off at Super Bowl radio row
- The two were trying to agree on a super fight
Cris Cyborg and Claressa Shields crossed paths during radio row ahead of Super Bowl 58 and traded a few verbal shots as they talk about a potential match.
Two of the best female fighters in the world collide
It wasn’t clear how but the most important thing was that Cyborg and Shields ran into one another. As expected, the two faced off and began having a verbal exchange over previous callouts.
In a video clip now circulating online, Cyborg could be heard telling Shields to come down to 147 to make the fight happen. Shields, who fought mostly at 155, was trying to argue but both women were definitely down to take on each other sooner rather than later.

The super fight is possible
Cyborg and Shields entered each other’s lane as the Brazilian has embarked on a boxing career as of late. On the other hand, “T-Rex” has already been hitting her stride in MMA under the PFL banner.
With Bellator now acquired by PFL, a super fight between the two legendary fighters should not be a surprise.
As it stands, Cyborg is still the reigning Bellator women’s featherweight champ but has won her last two boxing matches. She dominated Gabrielle Holloway to a decision victory in 2022 and finished Kelsey Wickstrum via first-round knockout last month.
As for Shields, she is 1-1 as a pro MMA fighter but her boxing resume speaks for itself, having won world titles in three different weight classes, including the undisputed middleweight title.
