08:52 PM ET 12.03 | UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is set to defend her title on Dec. 28 against Miesha Tate at UFC 168, in a rematch that we have all been waiting for. The rivalry between the two fighters has helped promote the fight, but now there could be an interesting new dynamic to watch. Cris Cyborg, with whom mixed martial arts fans should be familiar, has never been a fan of Rousey and the Invicta FC 145-pound champion is offering up her help to Tate as she prepares for the fight.

Not sure it will help....rousey, clearly has an attitude you want to cheer against but that girl is a brute. And until she gets hit in the mouth a few good times I don't see Tate being able to beat her. Now man-woman Cyborg is another story. If cyborg can stay clean I'd love to see that match up.

Met Cyborg in CA a few months back. Her training is hard core!

Rousey is scared of Cyborg. She refuses to fight her unless Rousey drops to her weight class which would give Rousey a huge advantage. I'm sure even then though Cyborg would mop the floor with her.

I'd rather meet Rousey than Cyborg.... IMO.

Rousey is not scared of Cyborg. She's called that juice monkey out several times. Cyborg is a cheat and as a result, a freak; everone knows this. There's a good reason she's not in the UFC. Once she's off drugs, she can easily make the UFC champion's weigfht class. Rousey would destroy her.

With Cyborg off the juice, Rousey snaps her arm like a twig.
