Cristiane Cyborg post fight press conference
Here's the video of Saturday's post fight press conference with Cristiane Cyborg and Strikeforce owner Scott Coker. It's the usual nonsense. Nobody bothered to ask Cyborg anything because they're not going to get a straight answer. She again promised that this will never happen again. At least she didn't blame it on "woman trouble". Coker started by explaining what happened after Friday's weigh-in. But you'll notice that no one asked him how it felt to be made to look like a fool in front of an international audience. It sets a precedent. "Oh, we can put one over on this dope." The press conference is about five minutes too long as they ran out of questions. I've been asked what the solution was after the weigh-in. The CSAC provided the solution by not sanctioning the fight. The problem was they backed down when they probably shouldn't have. So if you leave it up to the weasel promoter, he's going to do what is best for himself. And fighters are always going to fight even if they are told not to. It is the CSAC's duty and responsibility to protect the fighters in this kind of situation and they didn't do that.
