Cris Cyborg Interview With Brendan Schaub
Former Invicta champion turned UFC fighter Cris Cyborg joins Brendan Schaub in-studio on Big Brown Breakdown with her boyfriend Ray Elbe for an emotional conversation. About her journey, her future, and why her fight outside of the cage is the most difficult one.
Brendan and co-host Chin also discuss MMA events. Rory Macdonald on not getting as much sponsorship outside the UFC. Anthony Johnson’s new business venture into the medical marijuana industry and breakdown Bellator 179. It’s all part of an all-encompassing interview in which Cris opens up about her situation with the UFC and Dana White.
It has not been easy for her as Dana White has publicly insulted Cris before she even joined the promotion. Adding to that their inability to find her some challengers at lightweight. Trying to force her to cut to bantamweight, when she is naturally a bigger stronger woman.
It is this combination of events and personal insults that have made her position with the UFC almost untenable. While still signed to the promotion, Cris still feels like she is on the outside looking in and almost does not know where to turn. It’s a fascinating interview with one of the nicest people in MMA, the devastating Cris Cyborg.
