SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2016

What is your ultimate MMA career goal? I hope to inspire other girls to train MMA. I joined Juliano Prado to co-promote Get Down Fighting and on July 2nd at the YOST Theater I hosted the inaugural Female California Amateur MMA State Championship.

For many young girls you are a role model that they aspire to be like. From your experience leading up to and including your success in MMA, what knowledge can you share with them? It isn’t easy, but it is worth it if this is something you love.

Stepping out of the octagon, who is Cris Cyborg? I am Cristiane Justino and I am from Curitiba, Brazil. I was raised by very supportive parents and had a happy childhood. My mother never worried when I would be gone all day. I was strong and athletic and I’d always compete in a sporting event and come home with a medal. I have 2 brothers. My one brother Rafael Justino is a Chute Boxe Black Belt and fights MMA. I love animals! If I were not a fighter, I’d work in a pet shop. I love Brazilian food and black is my favorite color‌just look at my nails during one of my fights! My life is very busy and I’m always training so on the weekends I relax and use this time for my recovery period. Outside of MMA, I dream of having a happy family with a kid of my own one day.
