Cyborg Found New Inspiration To Make 135 From Holly Holm

September 2, 2015 12:47 pm by BJPENN.COM News

It’s common knowledge that UFC bantamweights Miesha Tate and Holly Holm joined Invicta FC featherweight champ Cristiane Cyborg while they filmed the new movie, ‘Fight Valley.’

The three have been busy on social media sharing pictures of each other working on the film. Apparently they got pretty friendly with each other Holm even ended up providing Cyborg with a new sense of hope when it comes to making the 135 lb. weight class.

It’s been an ongoing struggle for Cyborg, who claims to have been trying to get down to the weight, but still insist on a catchweight fight with Ronda Rousey. But maybe Holm gave Cyborg the new motivation she needs to meet Rousey at bantamweight.

Here’s what Holm told Sherdog:

“We took a picture and she looked at the picture and said, ‘You’re the same height as me, how tall are you?’ I said ‘I’m 5-8.’ She said, ‘I’m 5-8. There’s hope I can do this.’ She kept telling us the whole time, ‘I’m not a mean person.’ I knew she would be really nice. She was actually really funny and really personable. I had a really good time with her. She’s got a good lighthearted personality about just everything. I want her to do well. She’s a very strong girl, a very big girl. I know that she’s trying very hard. She really wants to come down to the division.”

Do you think she’ll ever get to the weight class?
