Cris Cyborg Gets In On April Fool’s Day With Fight Announcement
Cyborg used social media and her official website to try and trick people into believing she had a fight set with Germaine de Randamie.
Former UFC champion Cris Cyborg played an April Fool’s Day prank on her followers, insisting that a bout with Germaine de Randamie was on for UFC 237.
Cyborg’s official website and her Instagram account both were involved in the prank, which led to the fight stipulations:
“Cyborg who has been in Africa training in the Jungle in anticipation for this fight is excited to be taking part in the first “electric fence” super fight. As part of this bout the UFC will be testing new technology which prevents fighters from putting their fingers through the cage fence by supplying an electrical shock to the finger tips each time they are extended into the holes of the fence, the shock is sent through the glove by a cage side member of the athletic commission. While the technology is not new, this will be the first fight the UFC has ever used the technology in an actual fight, which is why the UFC 237 fight between Cyborg and GDR is being called an “Electric Superfight”. To Purchase your tickets to the first ever Electric Superfight HERE.”
Obviously, the two could be paired up down the road, but for now, we await the next real fight announcement for Cyborg.
