This fight as per the mock poster Cyborg posted, it reveals the date to be Saturday, February 10th at UFC 221 in Perth, Australia. This would be the second attempt by the UFC to book this fight as it was previously slated to take place at UFC 214, though Anderson withdrew herself from the fight citing personal issues, subsequently Cyborg went on to face In Invicta Bantamweight Champion Tonya Evinger, defeating Evinger to claim the vacant UFC Featherweight title.

Cyborg is coming off her unanimous decision victory over former UFC Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm at UFC 219 this past Saturday in Las Vegas, Nevada. This would be the quickest turnaround of Cyborg’s career should this fight be made official.

There is no word as of yet, whether Anderson has accepted the fight, or if a bout agreement is signed. Nor is there any confirmation of its position on the card should it be made official. Stay tuned here for further updates.
