It is being reported that Playboy magazine has extended an offer to current Strikeforce Women’s champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos to show off her buff bod in a future edition, and the Brazilian is considering it.
“Actually we are still talking, and I’m thinking about that possibility,” Cyborg told Sherdog.com. “After all, only one man saw me naked in my entire life and I have to think deeply about that.”
That lucky man is fellow Strikeforce fighter Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos.
Although her world has been flipped upside-down since dominating Gina Carano to capture the open 145-pound title back in August, she maintains that fighting is her only priority. Cyborg does admit she’s flattered by the Playboy thing, but her focus has been set squarely on Marloes Coenen, her January 30th opponent, for quite some time.
“I’m pretty much focused on the training,” she said. “I’ve trained so hard to get this belt, I’ll do anything to keep it with me.”
“Strikeforce in Miami” will mark her first title defense, however her mentality entering the scrap won’t be much different than when she entered the cage in her past nine contests, leaving victorious on eight of those occasions.
“I believe that each fight is a different story,” Cyborg added. “I’m training really hard and getting prepared to give another show to my fans and represent the Chute Boxe name well, always keeping my main focus on the knockout.”
