Cris Cyborg has recently released the final episode of her vlog following her fight at UFC 232 and it includes an extensive backstage footage from both before and after the fight.

Despite the widely accepted fact that the Brazilian, Amanda Nunes would be Cyborg’s toughest challenge till date not a lot of people accepted Cyborg to get outboxed and get knocked out in the very first minute of the fight.

Following the fight, Cyborg was met in her locker room by boxing champion and close friend Claressa Shields, who gave some tough love.

What the (expletive)?” Shields told Cyborg. “I’m not mad about the loss, I’m mad because you know how to (expletive) box. You shouldn’t have been out there just trying to brawl. What the (expletive) did you do that for? You (expletive) jab with me. Jab with her ass.

Also present in the locker room was Hollywood star Halle Barry, who was pretty obviously stunned with the outcome.

I was shocked, a lot of mixed emotions, but she’s a champion. You’ll see, she’ll be back. All champions have to face highs and lows. I faced it in my career, we all face it. But she’s a true champion. She’ll be back.

While Cris was on her way to do the post fight media rituals she bumped into former opponent Holly Holm and also into Alexander Gustafsson.

Holm had the following to say to Cyborg:

I wish you the best with everything. Hey, what can you do? (God) knows our plan better than us. God bless you.

Closing the video, Cyborg thanked all her fans for supporting her and talked about her potential rematch with Nunes.

The first thing I did after the fight was message my manager and tell him I want a rematch. I know I have the last fight on my UFC contract but we will do everything possible to try and make this fight happen.
