“Waiting on you,” Nunes wrote in a tweet directed to Cyborg, which included a photo of a signed bout agreement.

The Los Angeles Times’ Lance Pugmire reported Wednesday that the UFC has sent bout agreements to both Cyborg and Nunes for UFC 232. As of now, though, both sides have yet to agree to that date.

Cyborg is adamant about fighting sooner than that. She told BloodyElbow.com that considering her last fight — a TKO win over Yana Kunitskaya — happened at UFC 222 in March, she doesn’t want to wait all the way until December for the Nunes fight.

“I’m healthy and in my prime and ready to fight. I don’t need to be put out of the cage 10 months waiting for her,” Cyborg said. “December is a long time away. I’m ready to fight now.”

Cyborg has defend the women’s featherweight title twice since winning it against Tonya Evinger almost a year ago. Nunes is coming off her third women’s bantamweight title defense, a fifth-round TKO of Raquel Pennington in May.

Schiff: Surveillance warrant docs show that Nunes memo 'misrepresented and distorted these applications' .
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said Saturday that the release of documents related to the surveillance of a former Trump campaign adviser show that Republicans "misrepresented and distorted these applications" in their claims of bias at the Department of Justice. "These documents affirm that our nation faced a profound counterintelligence threat prior to the 2016 election, and the Department of Justice and FBI took appropriate steps to investigate whether any U.S. persons were acting as an agent of a foreign power," Schiff said in a statement.
