Cyborg Reveals Brazilian Friends Brought Back Info From Holly Holm’s Camp

After many, many months of hype, negotiations and a back-and-forth suspense on if the fight would be on UFC 219, Cris…

“MANY BRAZILIANS ARE EXCITED ABOUT THIS FIGHT. BOTH TIMES I FOUGHT IN BRAZIL AT 63.5KG, THE FANS WANTED ME TO FACE HOLLY [HOLM], AND SINCE THIS FIGHT WAS ANNOUNCED I WAS SURPRISED BY THE NUMBER OF BRAZILIAN FIGHTERS WHO OFFERED ME SUPPORT. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I HAD SOME BRAZILIANS WHO TRAINED IN NEW MEXICO WHO CAME TO SHARE THINGS ABOUT THEIR TRAINING. ALTHOUGH I THANKED THEM FOR WANTING TO SEE ME SUCCEED AND CONTINUE REPRESENTING BRAZIL AS CHAMPION, I DID NOT LET WHAT THEY SAID INFLUENCED MY TRAINING. IN THE END, I DO NOT CARE WHAT KIND OF TRAINING SHE’S DOING FOR HER CONFIDENCE, WRESTLING OR BOXING. MY TEAM IS PREPARING ME FOR THE BEST VERSION OF HOLLY HOLM.”
