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 isnâ€™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 Iâ€™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, Iâ€™d work in a pet shop. I love Brazilian food and black is my favorite colorâ€Śjust look at my nails during one of my fights! My life is very busy and Iâ€™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.
