Cris Cyborg, a reigning UFC featherweight champion has come forward to reveal that she is in the process of adopting a young girl.
Cyborg has just had arguably one of the best years in all of the mixed martial arts. She won a UFC featherweight champion in July when she bested Tonya Evinger at UFC 214. She followed that great moment up with her first title defense against former bantamweight champ Holly Holm at UFC 219 this past December. As she is discussing another super fight with current bantamweight queen Amanda Nunes at UFC 226 on July 7, what else could Cris Cyborg have in mind for 2018? She is going to become a mother.
Cyborg was speaking to MMA Fighting, where she revealed that she is close to adopting a 12-year-old Brazilian girl. She didn’t reveal the name of the girl or any picture of her. However, Cyborg would go on to define their relationship as “mother and daughter.”
”I’m going to Europe now for seminars, visit hospitals, churches and social projects,” Cyborg said. “After that, I will be in process of adopting my niece. Many blessing happening.”
”It’s a relationship between her and I, a promise I’ve made seven years ago,” Cyborg said. “We have a mother and daughter relationship. We were always together. When I moved to fight in the U.S. it was hard for both of us, and I promised that I would organize my life and bring her. And the time has come to fulfill my promise.”
UFC champ Cris Cyborg itself is a very caring person over the years, in the week leading up to UFC 219 event, she held a teddy bear drive for sick children in a Las Vegas hospital.
Cris Cyborg hoping the adoption process get to finalized quickly so she will have time to focus completely on the potential super fight with Amanda Nunes.
