Cyborg’s Next Opponent Revealed

Not that it was a closely guarded secret to begin with, but according to Tatame, Cristiane Cyborg‘s manager let slip out who her next opponent would be.  In an interview with Tatame, Chute Boxe coach Rafael Cordeiro reveals Cyborg’s next opponent and much more; below is the interview in its entirety:

When will Cris Cyborg fight again?

She’ll be at EliteXC’s October 4th show, again live by CBS, at Florida , against a Japanese fighter, Yoki Takarashi. She’s a very tough fighter and it’ll be a great fight. We signed the contract yesterday and Cris will fight her.

How was the repercussion of Cris’ victory in ?

They’re impressed with her performance. Gary Shaw, EliteXC’s VP, said that she’s the most brutal athlete he had ever seen and that Gina is a star of the event, but now Cris is a star too. We’re very happy, we saw that he was praising both of them, and said that they can face each other.

How is Chute Boxe’s American branch?

It’s great here. Marlon Mathias came here, Cris might come finish her training here too, Evangelista Cyborg will come prepare here for his fight too, Fernando Bettega is moving to and it’ll be great. People are enjoying the training here, the Muay Thai preparation, MMA, it’s really cool. We won a No Gi competition last weekend in Long Beach .
Each day we only get better here.

Did you had any situation with American athletes on the team?

We’re getting used to they kind of work. In the beginning we were shocked, but then we saw that they want to go where the best training is. They’re coming here because of our aggressive style, and now we have a lot of athletes, new sparrings and it’s great. Our athletes are very motivated because our training is different, all the attention we give the athlete. I’m learning a lot here, as a coach, taking care of the athlete, physical preparation, losing weight… My time here has been great.
