After holding two gigantic training camps in South Africa, Cris Cyborg (22-2 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) will have action. This weekend he will go for a new defense of his title, albeit outside of the UFC. She is a legend of female Mixed Martial Arts and this time she will be showing herself to the world in the Bellator 249 against Arlene blencowe (13-7 MMA, 6-3 BMMA). She has fought the greatest in history, although she is on that list.
«My last two camps I went to South Africa. This time I did not have the opportunity to go there because of COVID. But for me, it also had a good side. I had the opportunity to camp with Rafael Cordeiro at Kings MMA, and I was doing camps with him a long time ago. It was really a very hard job and we prepared ourselves in the best way for this, ”the Brazilian began.
For its part, Cris He also stressed: “The last time I camped with him was before the Gina Carano fight. He is my first coach. He taught me how to throw my first kick, my first punch. It is very nice to be back with him training. He knows me and he’s very, very cool. It is a great advantage to have him with me again, we get along very well to train. I’m very happy about that and I hope to take advantage of it.
Can you get it?
«She is a great opponent for me, it will not be easy at all and we already know that. She is a two-time boxing champion, she has great punches and great speed with her fists. She likes to attack. I also like to attack, so it will be very entertaining. It’s going to be an exciting fight with lots of blows for sure. There is no doubt that it will be attractive to the fans, “said the UFC expeller.
«This makes me very happy and excites me a lot, it is motivating. Every time I see new girls signing with Bellator it’s the only thing that makes me sign with Bellator, is that I have the entire 145 division. I’m not going to have to wait a year, nine months to fight. I know I have girls in my division and I think our division at 145 will be the best division in women’s MMA. Let’s hope that we stay with the victory », he closed Cyborg, who came to Bellator in the last quarter of 2019 and lifted the belt shortly after.
