Cyborg Chronicles Her Medical Test For UFC 232
Cris Cyborg is set to fight in the co-main event of UFC 232, as she defends her featherweight title against Amanda Nunes. Heading into fight week, things seemed fine for the defending champion, then on Sunday the event was moved from Nevada to California, causing Cyborg to rush and get cleared by the California State Athletic Commission.
“I was supposed to fight in Nevada and they changed it to California,” Cyborg said. “I don’t have a license for California, now I’m doing the other [business] I have to do to make a fight here. This is ridiculous.”
“First time,” she later added when asked if it was normal for her to have her medicals taken during fight week. “And I still have to do other ones and that I don’t know if we’re gonna do. But I have to do it for this fight license.”
