W miniony weekend w Brasilii odbyła się gala UFC Fight Night z walką wieczoru między Cris „Cyborg” Justino (17-1) i Liną Lansberg (6-2). Pojedynek – zgodnie z przewidywaniami – przez nokaut w drugiej rundzie zwyciężyła ta pierwsza, odnosząc drugie zwycięstwo pod banderą UFC.

Dzisiaj światło na tamtą walkę rzucił jeden z trenerów Liny Lansberg, Akira Corossani, który opublikował w mediach społecznościowych posta, w którym stwierdził, że Cristiane „Cyborg” wchodząc do walki ze Szwedką ważyła… 170 funtów! 

Jest to znacząca różnica w porównaniu do ustalonego limitu, w jakim obie zawodniczki miały się zmierzyć. Jeszcze dzień przed walką, podczas oficjalnego ważenia „Cyborg” i Lansberg ważyły po umowne 140 funtów.

Poniżej pełne oświadczenie Corossaniego:

"Everybody has a plan before they get hit" Acceptance: With zero excuses and pure admiration for @linalansberg the obvious conclusion is… Cyborg is just a better fighter, too strong, too heavy possesses power that can put any woman or man to sleep. To accept that as a team is very hard trying to figure out what we could've done differently. We turned every stone in this weird and crazy camp doing over 100 interviews along with one month before the fight traveling to Brazil for a two day promo shoot. We did what we had to do but we fought the last boss with no "insert coin" option! The home country crowd wanted Lina dead covering Tag team's song "Whoomp there it is" as she was walking in smiling! To make a long story longer… Lina had a chat with Cyborg where she mentioned that she walked into the cage at 170 lbs (77 kg). Now that means TWO weight classes up along with that additional skill level. What can be harder than doing all of this in your UFC debut!? I know she will be back and show what she is about but what she did taking this fight believing in herself is admirable! Fighters should ask themselves if they would do it? Forget about the average joe getting anxiety and jitters from singing at a half-empty karaoke bar! I am Linas biggest fan and I will make sure she bounces back! I wanna thank the REAL fans for their support and all the friends and family supporting her through this. She will be back! #TheWomanInTheArena
