Cris Cyborg Sets Sights On UFC Champion After Latest Win

But beyond the title aspirations, there is more to the showdown between Edgar and Ortega. I'm going to adopt and bring my niece with me, and it's going to be at the end of March, and I accepted this fight (with Kunitskaya) because it's the beginning of March and it [fit into] my plan. So, this is the toughest fight of my career.

After staring her career 9-0, Zingano has now dropped three consecutive fights and is winless since September 2014. He talks a lot of junk on social media and likes to fight with his hands down, which usually leads to his fights being entertaining, but "Sugar Sean" has one UFC victory (and it was just OK) and just feels like one of those guys that is going to get pushed too quickly and falter. All kids dream of their opponents and talk about it.

"Forget this fight stuff", Mark Henry, Edgar's coach wrote on Instagram following the bout. Despite a title fight opportunity once again falling through, Edgar opted to remain on the card.

I am not bothered at all because if you look at my resume it is submission, knockout, submission, knockout submission, submission.

"I think if it was real, Dana would've called me personally", he added. Especially for the fans as Khabib likes to wrestle and bring people down and be on top and I like to come back from the bottom and show how powerful I am from the bottom. If they fight, that will continue for one, but at least the other would regain some momentum. I just beat one of the best to ever do it. It's unfortunate that I am getting older! I've always seen it.

"I have worked really hard to get here and it's even more surreal than I could have imagined", Ortega said.

"She's going to fight now, defend her title belt in Brazil in May, I think, and then probably I'm going to fight in July if she wins and is the champion", Cyborg said of Nunes, who is reported to be defending her own title against Raquel Pennington at UFC 224 on May 12 in Brezil.
