  1. Id like to see her first tittle defense be against Holly after she get another win. Styles make fights and I think both Holly and Shevchenko would beat Nunes. That said Cyborg will crush Holly and that would be a great push. Shevchenko is a true 125er whos skills transcend to allow her to compete at the highest level at 135. I want to see her and Joana in a supper fight for the 125 tittle.

  3. This fighter is a star. I'm glad she is going to get paid. She is one of the rare fighters that it doesn't matter who she fights you want to see her fight. I think she will find a nemesis down the road. Like with Ronda the division will slowly catch up to her. Then she could do a million PPV buys.

  5. If your in America and you Eat Beef Your getting Steroids in your Diet . The Sports world need to just drop all the bans on Performance Enhancers . Why does anyone give a fuck its Sports if they can kick ass with Science fuck it let them ride out

  6. You really have to respect this lady. She has stuck in  there and stayed positive through a lot of adversity and turmoil. Her english has improved and obviously she has kept her skills and conditioning in top form. I think she has such a great attitude and is headed for a great UFC career.

  8. Ya'll need to stop with Wanderlei comments… She's a real woman whom just used too much testosterone in developing years… But now that shes off the juice, she's looking more like what she is… ALL WOMAN!! In addition to obvious smarts, level-headedness, an amazing attitude, and her sweet earnest personality, she has disarming, kind eyes, luscious full lips that create an amazing smile, and an almost perfect sexy body. Not to mention her small her hands and feet say shes all woman too… Furthermore, when she's not mandated to be all dehydrated by ole Dana, her perfect natural tits are fairly big and luscious too!!

  10. Amanda Nunes had 3 months to prepare for the fight with V.S. and still couldn't get it done. I don't blame Dana for not wanting to give her another headline ppv fight. I bought the fight expecting to see them two square off. Valentina is much more professional then Amanda and it shows. Fighters need to fight in there weight class and stop trying to cut so much weight the day before the fight if it's not close to there walking weight. It's not healthy and it's costing the U.F.C. and the fighters to lose fans.

  12. I don't want to make fun of Cyborg but my brother walked up while I was watching the video and asked "Why are you watching Bruce Jenner… or Kaitlyn Jenner?" This made me laugh. I started liking Cyborg a little bit lately but that made me laugh.

  13. It's amazing to me how dumb and blind people are. Cris Cyborg is a freaking MAN, it's a dude a freaking tranny beating up real women n the UFC and that's why almost nobody wants to fight him. Wake the hell up!!!

  15. much respect to cris for standing up to cyberbullying and smacking magana in the face. talk shit get hit! 😉 too bad our pussywhipped society taking side with the one getting a punch rather then seeing the reason why him or her got what was coming to them cos of beeing the actual bully and bullys are expert at turning the tables and playing the victim,just as magana did :p

  17. she has really changed her looks.i think she looks great considering how she looked before.but she is a real fighter so I don't think she was really concerned about how she looked when she busting a bitch up.im glad she improved her looks.tired of the way she has been treated.she was knocking out bitches n everybody was only talking about the way she looked smh

  18. I don't understand why Amanda Nunes couldn't announce the sinusitis at the time the bout was called off
    Just strictly from a PR perspective, Amanda Nunes team let her get slagged in the media and all these message boards for 24 hours in a day and age where information spreads instantaneously. An extra 30 characters in an initial tweet would have cleared SO MUCH of this nonsense up! So much wasted conjecture without dealing with anyone in the public sphere discussing any of the actual symptoms of her condition and possible actions she could have taken to save the card.

    Amanda Nunes and her team messed up big time in the PR department. A nose problem? Why the secrecy? We had women guessing it was menstrual problems for crying out loud.

  19. She's great. So nice and polite, self-confessed animal lover (saying she would be a veterinarian if she wasn't a fighter in another interview). Also she has great eyes and smile. OK she's built like a brick s***house and she's admitted to her past mistakes.

    The amount of SHIT people on YouTube say about her is just childish, pathetic bullshit. People who were either bullied at school, were the bullies or should have been bullied.
    Assholes trying to be clever by re-using the same old tired shit time and time again as if they're being original.
    Anyway screw those losers.

    Obviously Cyborg is going to win at UFC 214 unless something incredible happens and finally get the belt she has long deserved. UFC would be a worse place without her. I'm in your corner CC !

  21. This guy has no room to talk about anyone. This guy declines fights because he cant make 145 in 10 weeks. He uses steroids and hides in Brazil where usada has a hard time finding him for testing. Then when they hear usada is looking for them they try to clean their system by taking masking drugs which is exactly what cyborg got busted for last time. Cyborg and Wanderlei Silva are notorious for this. On top of all this cyborg only ever calls out girls in a division below her most of which are only in the 135 division because ufc doesnt have a 125 division that would be better for their size. She is expecting these girls to go up a division when they are already fighting in a division above their more natural division and even then cyborg barely makes weight.

  23. "You never must think you're invincible. CRIS says in Portuguese:"You never must think you're invincible. When you're champion you have to be well grounded, I feel like I'm defending my belt and I train hard like contender n#1. The others are watching, you know, they want to defeat me, so I have train even more, I have to train everything to step up my game, keep improving." THIS IS REAL CHAMPION'S MINDSET. #CyborgRealDeal #TheBaddestWomanOnEarth #TrueChamp #FWQueen

    • It needs dedication but it's not that hard. Today internet helps a lot giving accesss to shows, series, songs with subtlitles in the original and translation, also online language lessons. For me the easier ones IMO are Latin languages (Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French). Then the Anglo-Germanic (English, German). If you learn one of each of these "language trees", from there your brain developes connections to other languages. Then you can tackle Slavic, Middle Eastern and Asiatic languages. CHOOSE LANGUAGES OF COUNTRY SEEMS INTERESTING FOR YOU, YOU'D LIKE VISIT IT.

  25. I won''t draw conclusions, Amanda never pulled out of a fight before. BUT IT'D BE GREAT A EXPLANATION! When CRIS CYBORG got flagged for spirolactona, she published a long note, her exams, even her doctor's statement and it prooved TO BE TRUTH therefore USADA gave her retroactive exemption. CRIS' FANS KNEW IN ADVANCE WHAT WAS HAPPENING. So why other fighters can't do the same? They say Cyborg is this that. Cris has integrity, she cares, OTHER FIGHTERS MUST RESPECT FANS TOO.

    • +DonEkz I'm not making shit up faggot… Look up ANY studies on steroids and it will tell you there's benefits who last for over 5 years and there's life lasting benefits… Right now you're emotional and all your evidence is anecdotal instead of being based on facts.

      BTW the reason Cyborg is in better shape now is because she's still on PEDs… Hence why she failed a test recently for ANTI FUCKING ANDROGENICS!!! Go educate yourself on steroids and PEDs kid. You most likely don't even know what anti androgneics are for.

      Right now all your argument on the lasting benefits of PEDs stands on Vitor Belfort(anecdotal evidence). I don't know how old you are but that would never work in a real debate. But there's MULTIPLE studies made by valid sources on steroids who agree with my argument. Until you find an actual study who says there's no lasting benefits of steroids you can't argue with me kid. Anecdotal evidence is so weak that it doesn't even hold in court. Keep grasping at straws to defend your man crush you closeted homo…

    • Considering the amount of PEDs Guyborg has used her entire career, her insides are all fucked up — she'll be dead in ten years, probably heart attack or liver failure. She's a cheat and a liar. Six pound bikini? Yeah, right. LOL

    • Wow, someone is on steroids. Everyone I know who takes steroids responds just like that and always try's to tell me how Great and Healthy Steroids are. Fact of the matter is Steroids are good for you in a few ways but if you take them too long you find out what they actually do. They borrow energy from another part of your body. Just like the Steroids that help you get rid of sickness it's a booster to certain parts of your body but you can not give without taking away unless you were to somehow add extra and that is the problem doctors are still working on with steroids. You're working with a theory that is not complete yet. Technically If Doctors can figure out how to help your body keep up with everything it need to build you could just take all different types of Steroids and never get sick and stay strong and healthy to the extreme your entire life but the fact of the matter is people have tried that and it will lead to severe sickness which could kill you in many ways and for the lucky ones simply just make it to the hospital to find out they are malnourished. Steroids do make the muscles in your body stronger and essentially that will boost your life expectancy and make you feel a lot better and technically healthier but any doctor can tell you that your body needs more than just muscles to survive. Shit Look at Brock Lesnar.

  27. All the confidence Nunes gained after beating Miesha and Ronda went down the drain
    She proved to her fans that she is not as tough as they might have thought about her
    She kept saying " I am the champion for a reason"
    I want to continue enjoying the title as long as i can ( avoid Valentina)
    Remember she turned down the fight back in April 2017
    Lioness or Hyenass

  29. Cris looking slightly more feminine. If she works on her English a little more, and at a push even has minor surgery, she could become far more marketable. The UFC wouldn't be so eager to screw her over if she couldn't be easily accused of being male.

  31. Cris, please get the hell out of the UFC. The organization has shown you that it has no respect for you at any level, and you're going to end up getting screwed yet again if you stay there.

  33. THAT IS A FORFEIT! NUNES FORFEITED! DANA ALLOWED BULLSHITT!!!! AFTER THE WEIGH-IN IS WHEN YOU SHOW UP OR YOU FUCKING FORFEIT!!! SHE WAS "MEDICALLY CLEARED TO FIGHT!" NUNES SHOULD HAND THAT BELT TO VAL!!!!! UFC JUST BECAME A FUCKING JOKE!!!
