Fight Recap, With a Special Guest

Well, this is a fun one that I thought I would throw in this section:

Well, I have some wicked sleep disorders, and apparently so did the star of the show last night and, in the lobby of the Marriot, I ended up chilling with the first Strikeforce women’s champion Cris “Cyborg” Santos (8-1 MMA).

Wanting to rewatch the fights from the night before, I pulled up the video to the main event fight (knowing that she was sitting next to me the whole time) and played it on full screen. She then decided to turn away from her computer (where she had been surfing looking for video of the fight) and came over to watch with me.

I should first say that the language barrier was a big issue, but with Cyborg’s intermediate English and my very, very remedial Portuguese, we managed to put together an interesting conversation, and I did get a little insight into planning and prep for the fight. One of the most interesting bits of insight I got was the acknowledgement that Cris did not expect to finish the fight in the first round.
Click here for the rest (and a pic of me with Cyborg).
