Cecilia Braekhus Says Superfight W/ Cris Cyborg Is 'Gonna Happen'

EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, move over.... there's a new superfight on the way.

The matchup? Cris Cyborg -- arguably the greatest female UFC fighter ever -- against Cecilia Braekhus -- arguably the greatest female boxer ever.

If you like combat sports, you're well aware Cyborg's a badass ... but so is Braekhus. She's undefeated at 34-0 and has been the undisputed welterweight champ since 2014.

TMZ Sports talked to Cecilia -- who'll be the 1st woman to headline an HBO boxing card on December 8 -- Thursday night after the Lakers game and she gave us the 411 on the dream fight with Cyborg.

"[Cyborg's] very interested in doing a boxing match. We want to do the female version of a Mayweather-McGregor."

Braekhus says this ain't a pie-in-the-sky pipe dream.

"It's gonna happen."

But, does Cris have any chance to beat a champion boxer?

Braekhus' answer might surprise you.

Earlier this year ... we talked to Cyborg about the prospects of fighting Braekhus.
