Cris Cyborg Talks Invicta FC, Coenen, UFC and Rousey
PDG: With the PED situation behind you, what was the biggest lesson you learned from that experience?
Cyborg Santos: Don’t trust anyone! And I have to control my weight. Cutting to 145 is always a battle, I made a mistake and now it is behind me and it is time to move on.
PDG: You’ve had words with Ronda Rousey in the past. What do you think of the animosity between the two of you now? Is it all for the cameras or is it genuine? Cyborg Santos: It is all genuine, I want to knock her out.
PDG: Despite the war of words, what do you think of Rousey as a fighter?
Cyborg Santos: She is a one trick pony and she ran from me to 135. I have nothing else to say.
Here is the rest

“I’ve been setting up my own gym in Amsterdam and then training in the East Netherlands. In preparation for this fight, I stayed with my parents for weeks so I could be focused and train a lot with my time.”

Le (9-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC), who his past November knocked out ex-champ Rich Franklin, said he still wants to fight Michael Bisping. And until recently, he was under the impression he would do so.
