Cyborg: When I get the UFC belt, everyone will know I’m the best

The greatest fighter in women’s mixed martial arts history appeared recently on Submission Radio for a wide-ranging interview that included her fight with Megan Anderson at UFC 214.

“After two years I’m gonna fight in my division at 145 and this has really changed the motive for training,” she said. “I’m training really more motivated because it’s less stress about weight, just focus more on the training. I’m very excited to fight for the belt. And for me, I’m gonna defend my belt and fight Megan Anderson. So for me it’s really nice because she holds the Invicta belt now and I think it will be like a unification. We were supposed to fight before and then it’ll be amazing, we’re gonna fight for title belt in the UFC at 145.”

Cris was asked to comment on Germaine de Randamie’s refusal to defend the 145 title, citing past performance-enhancing drug use.

“I think she’s scared, she don’t want to fight,” said Cyborg. “I don’t think it’s an issue about money. I don’t know, maybe it’s about money, she wants more money, doesn’t see more money. And about saying I’m a cheater, I’m cheater, it’s the same excuse Ronda Rousey before I was gonna fight her – ‘Oh she’s cheater.’ Everybody saw when she fought someone who punched like Holly Holm did to her, then she retired and then all the girls, no one fights me and find excuses they don’t want to fight me and they call me cheater.”

“I have the same program that all the fighters in the UFC – USADA. And the first fight before the UFC, I signed one year with USADA. USADA testing me before all my fights, before I went to the UFC for one year and then this is proof I’m a clean athlete.”

“I think Megan Anderson is coming from four KO’s and I think she’s holding the Invicta [title] and I think she likes to strike too like me. I think it will be exciting for all my fans, but you know, in MMA you can have any plans and then you can do ground game, stand up game. I think you have a lot of options for what you can do. But everybody knows my game, everybody knows I like to go KO my opponent and I don’t think this fight is gonna be different. And if she’s prepared for this then I’ll give a nice fight for everyone.”

“If I get hold of the UFC’s belt, I think I think people are gonna see me as, ‘Ah, she’s the world champ, she’s the best in the world.’ I think, not just a couple of fans, the real UFC are gonna respect me, cause I’m ten years undefeated. [if] I hold the [UFC featherweight belt] this will be the third belt I’m gonna hold and maybe if I hold this belt I have respect from them. And for me, you know, the belt for me, it doesn’t mean nothing. I really like to go inside the cage and then do my best over there for all my fans because they make the show happen.”

“If I get the UFC belt I’m gonna have to stay one year, because it’s in the champion contract. And I have two fights left in the contract and probably gonna finish in December and then probably if I get the belt I have to stay one year and have the belt. But let’s see. I want to keep trying to work with the UFC, but if it doesn’t work, you know, not something I can control and then let’s see what’s gonna happen.”

 

Super Middleweight Christopher Brooker talks about being in Canelo Alvarez training camp

Christopher Brooker (11-3, 5 KO’s)will take on Oscar Riojas (14-7-1, 4 KO’s) on Friday, May 12th at The SugarHouse Casino.

The scheduled eight-round super middleweight bout will headline a card promoted by King’s Promotions. 

Brooker was summoned to San Diego to help Canelo Alavrez prepare for Saturday’s mega showdown with Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr that will take place in Las Vegas.

Being that Brooker is a strong super middleweight, and Chavez having a similar build, it made sense that Brooker would get such a call to help out the Mexican Idol for the much anticipated showdown.

“I went to camp with Canelo in San Diego, and we ran in the mountains at 15,000 feet. I was there close to two weeks and sparred twenty rounds with him,” said Brooker.

“It was a great experience to be around a fighter who is one of the elite fighters in the world.  He is so composed.  I was brought into to pressure him and mimic Chavez, Jr.  Canelo is such an experienced fighter, and I learned so much from him.  He was showing me how to set up my shots, and even certain exercises with my neck.”

Brooker was very impressed with the whole team, and believes that this camp will take him to the next level.

“His team is so professional and down to earth.  I am looking forward to this fight on Saturday.  It will be a good fight.  I was shocked to know that Canelo watched my last fight on ShoBox.  They could tell that I was trying to box more and get a way from my brawling style that I had employed in most of my bouts.  They gave me good advice, and told me not to change who I was when I was having a lot of success as a pressure fighter, and then to mix in the boxing aspect to my game.”

“I needed this.  This will take my to another level.”

Also in a six-round bout:

Blake Mansfield (5-0-1, 2 KO’s) of Burlington, NC will fight Henry Beckford (4-6, 1 KO) of Coram, NY in a super middleweight bout.

In four-round bouts: 

Chaise Nelson (4-1, 3 KO’s) of Dayton, Ohio will take on aBryan Perez Nevarez (2-5-1, 1 KO) of Carolina, Puerto Rico in a featherweight bout.

Sam Orapeza (1-0) of Philadelphia battles Kyle McNutt (1-2, 1 KO) of Battle Creek, MI in a cruiserweight affair.

Jeffrey Torres (2-0, 1 KO) of Philadelphia will fight Kashon Hutchinson (2-2, 1 KO) in a battle of Keystone State based lightweights.

Isaelin Florian (6-0, 3 KO’s) of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic will take on an opponent to be named in a bantamweight bout.

Harold Lopez (1-0, 1 KO) of Bethlehem, PA will square off with an opponent to be named in a bantamweight fight.

THERE WILL BE A PRESS CONFERENCE ON TUESDAY, MAY 9TH AT THE SUGARHOUSE CASINO BEGINNING AT 5 PM

Two world titles, one epic rematch slated for first Vegas event of 2017

UFC® kicks off their 2017 home schedule with two championship bouts and no shortage of bad blood on Saturday, March 4 at T-Mobile Arena with UFC® 209: WOODLEY vs. THOMPSON 2. Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley looks to prove once and for all that he is the best 170-pound fighter in the world when he meets Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson for the second time and top-ranked Khabib Nurmagomedov clashes with No. 2 Tony Ferguson for the interim lightweight world title.

When Woodley (16-3-1, fighting out of St. Louis, Mo.) and Thompson (13-1-1, fighting out of Simpsonville, S.C) met the first time at UFC® 205 in November 2016, the Fight of the Night winner became an instant classic resulting in a draw. The champion used his All-American wrestling pedigree on the ground while Wonderboy countered with his unorthodox, yet highly effective, kickboxing attack to battle on even terms with the champion. In a classic grappler vs. striker matchup, only one of them will leave the Octagon® as the undisputed welterweight champion of the world.

In the co-main event, two athletes who have long been at the top of the division collide for the interim lightweight world title and the chance to unify their title with Irish superstar Conor McGregor. Nurmagomedov (24-0, fighting out of Dagestan, Russia), is a Russian Sambo master with a perfect record that has been compiled thanks to a ferocious ground game. In addition to what may be the best grappling arsenal in the division, the 28-year-old also has eight knockouts to his credit and is a legitimate threat wherever the fight goes. No. 2 ranked Ferguson (23-3, fighting out of Orange County, Calif.) brings the longest UFC winning streak in the lightweight division to the Octagon, having won his last nine bouts and earning a Post-Fight bonus in his last five straight. “El Cucuy” possesses lethal finishing skills, recording 11 knockouts, seven submissions and nine first round finishes. With a title shot both feel is overdue, these men will be sure to bring the heat in this championship showdown.

Plus, a rematch nine years in the making pits No. 3 heavyweight Alistair Overeem (41-15, 1 NC, fighting out of Amsterdam, The Netherlands) against No. 6 Mark Hunt (12-11-1, fighting out of Sydney, Australia). As two of the most popular and longest tenured heavyweights on the planet, the list of accolades for this duo is long. They combine for 46 finishes, including 29 knockouts, both have been world champion kickboxers and Overeem is the former PRIDE, Dream and STRIKEFORCE® heavyweight champion. Overeem won their first match back in 2008 via first round submission, but Hunt will be looking for revenge and to stay atop the wide open division.

Additional Bouts:
A battle between two of the featherweight division’s top ranked athletes, No. 12 Darren Elkins (22-5, fighting out of Portage, Ind.) and undefeated No. 13 Mirsad Bektic (11-0, fighting out of Coconut Creek, Fla.)
Fresh off a Knockout of the Year contender, Lando Vannata (9-1, fighting out of Albuquerque, N.M.) meets fellow striking sensation David Teymur (5-1, fighting out of Stockholm Sweden) in a 155-pound duel.
Heavyweight knockout artists Todd Duffee (9-3, fighting out of Boca Raton, Fla.) and Mark Godbeer (11-3, fighting out of Bridgewater England) collide.
Electrifying finishers Igor Pokrajac (25-13, 1 NC, fighting out of Zagreb Croatia) and Ed Herman (24-12, 1 NC, fighting out of Portland, Ore.) clash at light heavyweight.
