Exclusive: Interview and photos with Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos
It was a nice Wednesday morning, scheduled to be one of the hottest days in the past year, my town was supposed to reach the 100’s (we got as high as 102, ugh), why not go to San Diego (where it reached 104) to interview the original B E A S T! I mean that in the most feminine way possible.
Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos is the definition of BEAST. She sports a career record of 10-1 with her only loss coming all the way back in 2005. 8 of her 10 wins have come by T/KO! She rarely goes past the 1st round, when she has, it’s only been to the 3rd round. She’s never needed to go into the championship rounds to best her opponent. Ever. All of her title defenses have come against the best the sport has to offer. She meets all of the criteria for the title of BEAST, which is why she is the current Reigning Queen of MMA.
Watching Cris in the cage, you might think she has been fighting less talented fighters, this is entirely untrue, she is one of the few MMA fighters who makes her worthy opponents look unworthy. GSP, Jon Jones, BJ Penn (when he’s on) and Anderson Silva are among the few on that very short list Cris Cyborg shares the honor with.
What she brings inside the cage, is absent outside of the cage, the ferocious stare, the muscles rippling with anticipation and the energy seemingly crackling around her. All are gone, what is left is one of the sweetest people I have met in MMA. Given that she was only minutes removed from a painful tattoo removal session (Cris is having a tattoo on her thumb removed) one would expect her to be a bit hurried, and definitely cranky. I know after I go to the doctor, the last thing I want to do is smile and make nice with some stranger. Yet, she was laughing, comfortable, willing to take photos, sign autographs and spend some time before we commenced the interview. It was a pleasure meeting and interviewing Cris.
Don’t believe me? See for yourself, below is an exclusive interview with the one and only Reigning Queen of MMA, Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos. Enjoy.
