Cris Cyborg Sets The Expiration Date On Her UFC Career, Wants To Move To Boxing

UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg has come forward to reveal her interest in venturing to the world of boxing after the end of her Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) contract.

Cyborg was recently called out by boxing champion Cecilia Braekhus, following the pugilist’s big title defense over Kali Reis on May 5. Speaking to MMA journalist Kevin Iole at the match, Cyborg detailed her interest in making a run as a boxer after the two fights left on her UFC contract.

“Of course, I need time for training. I think I need four, six months training. Gonna be maybe perfect because I have two fights left MMA and then I can focus on boxing.”

“After this (contract) I will do a boxing fight. I have just two fights left.”

“I would like to work with them. If the UFC work it and I can do the boxing fight and still have the belt and come back like McGregor did.”

“I think it’s a challenge for myself.”
