Mick Foley claims he told WWE chairman Vince McMahon to keep an eye on UFC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg's next fight in what seems to an attempt to lure the Brazilian to the sports entertainment world in the future.

The WWE are continuing their women's revolution with the introduction of "WWE: Evolution," the first all-women's pay-per-view set to take place Oct. 28.

And with the addition of Ronda Rousey, the former UFC women's bantamweight champion, earlier this year, the women's roster has been further strengthened with real star power.

Rousey was a pioneer for women's mixed martial arts and dominated the UFC until her last two fights which saw her get knocked out by Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes.

Unlikely to return to the UFC at least in the short term, it means combat sports fans never got to see her face off against Cyborg (20-1-1) — a dream bout particularly when Rousey was at the peak of her game.

But it could still happen if Cyborg was to transition from MMA to the WWE. The 33-year-old is currently the most dominant female fighter in the UFC right now and is riding a 20-fight win streak with nine knockouts in her last 10 wins.

Likely to face current women's bantamweight champion Nunes in a super fight next, WWE legend Foley is certainly impressed by her as well as her potential to be a WWE superstar down the line.

"I had a meeting with Mr. McMahon and I specifically told him keep your eyes on this Cyborg vs. Nunes fight," Foley told TMZ. "She's gonna be larger than life and would make a great WWE superstar down the line."

"She'll concentrate first and foremost on this super fight and I think it'll be one of the biggest fights in UFC history," Foley added.

Should Cyborg decide to transition into the sports entertainment world, it would not only be a huge acquisition for the WWE, but also allow her to finally face off with Rousey, albeit not in a cage. She has regularly spoken of her desire to face Rousey in a squared circle in the past, and most recently, was open to it, even if it meant a pre-determined loss against her rival.

"[Rousey] can do whatever she wants in WWE, they decide what happens beforehand," Cyborg told MMA Fighting. "I think Ronda’s biggest fear was losing to me, so if we were to do it in WWE she would have to win."

"I don’t have such a big ego, but if we were to put on a show for the fans, something like that, no problem. I know what would happen in a real fight," she said.

For now, an all-Brazilian clash against fellow heavy-hitter Nunes seems to be next for Cyborg, as UFC president Dana White confirmed it was the fight to make, though there is no official date or venue as of now.
