“I watched all fights but the last one, Ronda’s, [because] a woman working on the event came to tell me I had to leave because the commission doesn’t accept suspended athletes on the shows. My manager talked to the guys at the commission and there’s really a law that says that. I was upset for the way they treated me. They could’ve pulled me on a corner and told me, not in front of the fans. I was taking pictures and they interrupted me, saying I had to go. It was very disrespectful. I believe a champion deserves to be treated with respect. Everyone knows an athlete’s life isn’t easy, so all fighters deserve respect. When I was in Brazil I watched UFC and there was no problem.”

In an interview with Brazilian media outlet Tatame.com former Strikeforce champion Criz “Cyborg” Santos reveals that the CSAC forcefully removed her from last Saturday’s Strikeforce event.
