Bellator featherweight champion Cris Cyborg isn’t nervous about facing Sinead Kavanagh at Bellator 271 on November 12 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
In interviews, Kavanagh has said that Cyborg has been leaving Squid Game cards around the fighter hotel. The suggestion being, some mind games are at play. According to Cyborg they’re nothing but promo cards for her fans.
“My team give away for my fans the cards, and you know Sinead I respect her. I respect her as a fighter and I’m very excited to fight her Friday,” Cyborg said during Wednesday’s media day.
Kavanagh has also said that she can’t wait to punch the champion in the face to which Cyborg responded almost laughing about it.
“You know it’s the fight you have to punch my face you have to try it. It’s the fight game, if you don’t go to the fights wanting to punch someone in the face then why [are] you there? I don’t have any problems, I just go over there and fight.”
Two-time PFL lightweight champion, and current free agent, Kayla Harrison will be in attendance for Bellator 271 and Cybog was asked about possibly facing her in the cage.
“I’d like to talk about Sinead, I’m going to fight her Friday. But I don’t have any problems fighting Kayla,” Cyborg said.
“We don’t want to go to the fight and focus on who is outside the arena. I just focus on my opponent, but Kayla you’re welcome to come my home.”
Cyborg takes on Sinead Kavanagh in the main event of Bellator 271 in Hollywood, FL on November 12.
