    A champion vs. champion match between Cris Cyborg and Amanda Nunes may be the fight everyone wants, but first Nunes will have to get past Raquel Pennington in the main event of UFC 224 in Rio. But if Cyborg is worried about the way that fight may go down, she’s not showing it. In fact, she’s already putting together a camp with the intention of facing Nunes at UFC 226 on July 7th in Las Vegas.

    As for who’ll be a part of that camp? None other than Valentina “Bullet” Shevchenko, who went the distance twice against Nunes.

    “After Holly Holm, I contacted Valentina for she can help my camp with Amanda,” Cyborg said. “And she is going to be part of my team when I fight Amanda Nunes.”

    Valentina should stay away from someone as low and scummy as Cyborg imo.

    Not a good look for the Bullet, but I can understand her wanting to see Nunes lose and increase the possibility of that happening.

    Cyborg wins even if she doesn't make a camp. She has very little to worry.

    Valentina would be greatly behooved to avoid associating with... it, and instead focus on her own opponent coming up. She doesn't seem to have much to gain here unless she's getting paid a LOT or something.

    Then find women as big as her and technically sound like Valentina.

    You could also try not hating.

    Seriously, why wouldn't she? It's a great chance to train with a top notch competitor. Probably improve her skills and pick up some things from a veteran.
    Regardless of how you feel about Cyborg, she's one of the best.

    Why? Am I missing something? Why is Cyborg such a persona non grata all of a sudden?
    Also, sparring Cyborg would see a huge improvement in her striking game and even her grappling.

    She doesn't have an opponent coming up. And they spend time working on their skills, not just preparing for opponents.

    For some, yesterday's news could be new news today. Not everyone eats, breathes and shits MMA 24 hours a day.

    Some people on Sherdog are unbelievably insecure.
    Cyborg popped for a diuretic 7+ years ago and for a doctor prescribed out of competition treatment a while back.
    That coupled with her absolute dominance and the fact she's not an instagram underwear model leaves a lot of neckbeards very confused and frightened.

    It's a little similar to Jon Jones, though different substances were at play and her's was a while ago now, but it's more about being head and shoulders above anyone else.

    damn, imagine those sparring sessions if this actually goes through. the most powerful and frightening woman in mma against what I consider to be the most technical and well-rounded woman in mma (sorry joanna but you got KTFO)
