Inspiration Thursday: Cris "Cyborg" Santos

Y'all...I love Cris "Cyborg" Santos

Cris is the greatest female fighter we have probably ever seen, yet she seems so drama-free and unaffected.  The recent disagreements between Ronda Rousey and Meisha Tate subtly illuminates Rousey's fear of fighting Cyborg, the champion at 145.  However, the news that Cris will drop to 135 has put the fear of Xenu into all the current fighters at that weight.  After watching her training video below, who could blame them?

This video features a reporter trying to keep up with Cris during one of her "insane workout routines."  I actually feel bad for the guy, especially when he asks to sit out for a round and the trainer yells "NO!" in his face.  Cris, meanwhile, trains without complaining or appearing to be too tired.  Also, she trains to the same kind of music I do...Taio Cruz, hey hey.  I love her smile, her laugh and her kindness towards this poor poor reporter.  Homeboy was probably sore for a month.

BTW- Make sure you watch it the whole way through...that last two seconds is hilarious!
