MMA legend and former UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg has lately been doing plenty of good humanitarian work while being on a bit of a sabbatical from fighting in the octagon. Cyborg has now joined up former fighter Justin Wren for humanitarian work in Africa.
Cyborg was recently seen working for Wren and his organization Fight for the Forgotten’s cause of providing clean drinking water to two villages in Uganda. Here’s what she had to say:
Our clean water is just part of an entire Water-Land-Food initiative going on to help empower the Batwa Pygmies currently enslaved, or living as refugees, I know usually I’m promoting fight related material, but this experience has reaffirmed to me the responsibilities we all have to help make this world more loveable and better for everyone.
I think we can do better. You know, we can help. And I’m going to do it, and you guys know you’re going to be with me. I know you guys are with me, at the fight with me in the cage, and we’re going to be in another fight together.
