(Due to UFC)
Cris Cyborg is slated to fight Amanda Nunes at the UFC’s first champion vs. winner girls ’therefore fight. Cyborg will put her UFC featherweight name on the line against Nunes, who is that the UFC’s bantamweight champion.
With the trauma over Jon Jones’ strange drug test finding this particular week, UFC 232 moved from Las Vegas to Los Angeles, so might there be a few unforeseen logistical hurdles to clear. One quite significant barrier is Cyborg finding a license to fight in California with mere days ahead until struggle time.
Typically, fighters that need clinical evaluations to find clearance to fight have them done before the week of this struggle. Cyborg, but didn’t even know she had been going to need to apply for a license in California until only a few of days ago, so she had been compelled to run round the day after xmas to find the essential testing done for the California State Athletic Commission to take into account her licensure.
“This really is the first time (doing medicals the week end of this fight),” Cyborg said in her Cyborg Nation weblog series contributing around UFC 232. “But I have to complete for your own struggle license. ”
Barring any unforeseen issues, Cyborg will have the ability to rush her consequences in time for licensing, that your CSAC has pushed back from the typical Thursday night to Friday morning, but obviously leaves little wiggle room when there are any hiccups.
