I find it hilarious that people feel the need to make the statement of ‘Sure, I’ll date Cyborg.’ As if that option will ever be on the table for the rest of your life. If you were to combine every parallel universe that has ever existed since the beginning of time, at no point will Cris Cyborg choose to ditch her husband, Evangelista Cyborg in order to try her shots with you. Don’t worry, folks. You will never be in a situation to decide if you would like to be with Cris Cyborg. Let the debate end.
Cris Cyborg killed the protector of Asgard in the movie Thor. Just kidding, but it does not negate the fact she effectively killed the entire Strikeforce 145 lb female division with her recent drug test returning with banned substances. Now Cris has issued a response via Facebook regarding her failed drug test, and is now blaming it on supplements.
I would like to sincerely apologize to StrikeForce, the Zuffa organization, Hioko Yamanaka and my fans for my failed drug test.
I am ultimately responsible for everything I put in my body, and at the end of the day, there is no excuse for having a prohibited substance in my system. I do not condone the use of any performance enhancing drugs by myself or any other professional athlete, and willingly accept the penalties and fines that have been handed down to me by the California State Athletic Commission and those of the StrikeForce/Zuffa organization.
While I was preparing myself for my last fight I was having a difficult time cutting weight and used a dietary supplement that I was assured was safe and not prohibited from use in sports competition. It was never my intention to obtain an unfair advantage over Hiroko, mislead StrikeForce, the Commission or my fans. I train harder than any fighter in MMA and do not need drugs to win in the cage, and I have proven this time and time again! My only mistake is not verifying the diet aid with my doctor beforehand, and understanding that it was not approved for use in the ring. Unfortunately in the end I suffer the consequences and must accept the responsibility for my actions.
I will do everything I can to show my fans that I can still compete at the professional level without the use of any prohibited substances, and ask God’s forgiveness for my mistake.
