‘Cyborg’: Talk doesn’t matter
Since the rise of Ronda Rousey to prominence in Women’s MMA, people have been talking about a potential bout with Cris Cyborg. Although the two now fighter in different weight classes, the match up has been the most discussed in women’s MMA and Cyborg has taken her fair share of criticism, but as she sees it, talk is just talk:
“I have nothing to prove to anyone,” said Santos, who meets Australian Fiona Muxlow on Friday night at Invicta 5 in Kansas City. “People talk and talk, and what does that matter? It’s all talk. When I step into the cage, that’s when I do my talking.”
UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has been among Santos’ loudest critics, referring to her “Cryborg,” among other names. Santos, who chose to fight in Invicta at featherweight rather than attempt to get down to the 135-pound mark and compete in the UFC’s only women’s division, says she still wants to fight Rousey.
“Ask Dana White if he wants to make the fight,” Santos said. “Ask Ronda if she wants the fight. I will fight her. I’m not afraid of anyone. You have to ask them why they don’t want to make the fight.”
