Amanda Nunes: “I want to fight Cyborg tomorrow but my manager and coaches don’t”

Strikeforce 145 pound female up and comer, Amanda Nunes has announced her desire to fight current Strikeforce champion, Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos as soon as possible, something that’s not currently agreed upon by her manager and coaches.

Nunes, speaking via MMAFighting.com, said:

“I want to fight Cyborg tomorrow, but my manager and trainers feel like I need to gain a little more experience before I fight for the championship. I’ve only been training MMA for three years and I am still learning every day. The day I step in the cage with Cyborg, I will be 100% prepared.”

“I don’t think Cyborg has ever felt the aggressiveness and the power that I will bring to her. Cyborg is a huge girl and I am still a small 145[-pounder]. I have only been in America for three months and I just got a strength and conditioning coach. He is telling me that in a year he will have me as big and strong as Cyborg.”
