While common sense told Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos to finish up her studies in Brazil to pursue a career in physical education, her famed trainer, Rafael Cordeiro of the Chute Boxe Academy, told her otherwise. Why bother wasting your time on all of that college stuff, when you should be busting heads for a living? That was Cordeiro’s take on things, and Santos is thanking him for the advice in the present day as the feared knockout specialist currently sits on the top of the female mixed martial arts mountain as the reigning Strikeforce women’s 145 pound champion.

“I was in college, Physics Education, and I trained, but Master Rafael (Cordeiro) said that he thought it was better if I stopped the fight because the top training of Chute Boxe was in the morning and I could only train in the afternoon or in the night,” explained Cyborg in a conversation with Tatame.com. “He said, “I think it’s better if you stop this college… If you graduate you’ll teach, but on Muay Thai you can teach too and you’ll dedicate more“. I stopped the college, my mom wanted to kill me, but I followed a dream and thank God I was happy.”

I imagine myself in Gina Carano. That doesn't mean it's going to happen.

Sorry Fleek, but I gotta spread the love....I really don't think that she should have completely ceased her education though as many fighter's have a relatively short career. 5 fights from now should could be again a relative unknown. It could happen to almost any fighter, and has happened to many.
