In this very candid interview with MMAprime.tv, the female 145lbs StrikeForce Champion opens up about life as the champion. Cyborg talks about how she managed to stay motivated after a year without fighting, her opponent when she defends the title December 17th, fighting 20 feet away from her home gym and more. The Champion also mentions that she will attempt a move to 135lbs after this fight. Cyborg finds it amusing that people call her out at 145lbs for her title and then move down to 135lbs to avoid the fights. Therefore, in attempt to get more fights in the more abundant 135lbs female division, Cyborg will try to make the cut down in weight. Cris also talks about what it is like to train with her husband; fellow pro fighter Evangelista Cyborg and her time at Chute Boxe Academy in Brazil. (Source: MMAprime.tv)
