Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos’ next move will be revealed this Friday when her manager Tito Ortiz holds a press conference from his Punishment Training Center in Huntington Beach, CA.
The news comes days after Ortiz revealed on Inside MMA that his client had requested her UFC release.
The UFC and Santos have disputed her place in the new women’s division. There are currently only plans for a bantamweight weight class and Santos is a featherweight. She has expressed safety concerns about making the 10 pound drop in weight class.
Santos has been away from action for over a year after being suspended for testing positive to steroids.
