Still no contract for Cris Cyborg

After seeing some pics of Cris Cyborg hamming it up with Zuffa brass at the fighter summit, I was hopeful that maybe she’d be rescued from the fight limbo she’s been in since her contract expired back in June 2010. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Here she is on Twitter:

“Hi My dear fans, want to fight too soon, but not dependent on me. This very difficult to renegotiate with scott. They’re not appreciating all I did for the event. I am very sad, but I will not give up. God has another purpose in my life…Maybe I fight the world jiujtsu not going to be the way you like with many punches…but I will give my best to make you guys like it.”

Great to see the commitment to women’s MMA right there. Cris Cyborg is the clear #1 at 145 and arguably the best pound for pound fighter in women’s MMA. Yet she can’t get a new contract sorted out. Now maybe she’s asking for ‘too much’, but consider this: she got paid 15k/15k plus a 5k ‘champion bonus’ for her last fight. To put that into perspective, Nik fucking Lentz makes 15k/15k per fight. On the Strikeforce side, her win and champ bonus put her just ahead of what Trevor Prangley made when he lost to Tim Kennedy in under four minutes.

Meanwhile, Cyborg was a team player when Strikeforce needed her to be. She accepted that huge fight with Gina Carano while being paid peanuts and the fight was one of the biggest that the promotion was able to pull off. Now how do they reward her? By leaving her twisting in the wind when her contract comes up for renegotiation. Being the champ basically fucks her over now because she can’t go anywhere else. So now she’s taking her balls and going home … to compete in jiu jitsu tournaments. Total fucking bullshit.

    That tweet was a total google translate FAIL.

    Dana’s been working out. I wonder if Subes got wood.

    Which one is Cyborg? I see three dudes on roids and a Mexican

    Give it some time you belching twats. The UFC has only had their grimmy hands on SF for a couple of weeks (match maker, marketing, etc). If she doesn’t get a fight by the end of summer, then we can start bitching about the UFC screwing her over.

  • Grappo

    she’s lookin like a jacked-up Slater from Dazed and Confused.

  • Symbul

    There’s nobody credible for her to fight. They could find her another Jan Finney but the victims have probably seen that fight by now and know better.

  • iamphoenix

    that’s the finger she sticks in boy cyborgs asshole.

  • Billytk

    I’m not surprised she finds it hard to negotiate with Scott Coker since I wouldn’t be surprised if him and the old Strikeforce management hold a bit of a grudge for her ruining their plans by beating Gina

    Lame. At least let her go get some fights elsewhere.

  • glassjawsh

    not as scary with long hair. Id consider letting her rape me

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Edgar was seems to be the guy who is last picked until he psorevd yet again that he has all the tools to be champion. He has wrestling, striking, speed, great chin and most obvious, hes got heart. Can Bendo beat him, yes but so could Penn and Manyard. Edgar is truly a champion who can be beat at any time but he keeps on tickin.I just wish you folks would give credit where credit is due. Edgar is awesome and he makes bigger, stronger men look smaller and weaker.

    I think its best to let it go. BJ needs to let it go and you need to let it go. I’m tired of people being so darn sesiitnve. Nick spoke highly of BJ at the post conference and lets leave it at that. I’m getting so sick of fighters doing the WWE thing and arguing through the media. BJ is a terrific fighter and a great person. I believe he has been great for MMA, but lets move one.
