As far as Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos is concerned, bring it on.
Santos, who successfully defended her Strikeforce featherweight title this past weekend against Hiroko Yamanaka at Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Masvidal, says she feels like there is no one out there that can defeat her inside the cage.
“I’m very happy with my performance,” Santos said to the Showtime cameras following her victory Saturday night. “I trained hard in the gym every day, and wanted to try to win fast. I don’t like to talk too much, I just like to train.”
Ronda Rousey, a former Olympian, was in attendance to see Santos destroy another opponent. “Cyborg” also made several comments in the post-fight interview about a possible match with Rousey.

MMATraining Take: The more women talk in MMA, the better. These are some of the finest athletes on the planet, but they seem to only get attention when they are in magazines or talking smack. If talking is the way to the top, Santos and Rousey could sure put on a clinic both inside and outside the cage.
