After King Rena appears to have not accepted Cindy’s offer to a match up, and Rena returns to Jewel instead to take on a 0-1 opponent.
Cindy has wasted no time in moving back to her original goal of 145 pounds with an open offer to Scott Coker CEO of Bellator.

In perhaps the most surprising women’s release of the year, the UFC and Cindy Dandois parted ways after the worlds 2nd best 145 pound fighter entered the UFC to fight at 135 pounds. After just one loss in her debut in a closely contested fight with 8th ranked Alexis Davis.
It was after this that Cindy publicly stated she would prefer to stay at a healthier weight and not cut to 135 for the occasional fight at that weight anymore with her aim to now focus on becoming the best she can be rather than bounce between weights, while stating the split was amicable and that the promotion treated her extremely well and she will always be thankful for the opportunity provided.
But what was most confusing is that the UFC would let the number two 145’er go when they desperately need to build up their own 145 pound division!!??
Still life goes on and the UFC is choosing to continue to use 135’ers to match up against Cris Cyborg for what ever reason I am sure we will certainly come to understand after October when Cyborgs contract is up for renewal perhaps?
And what was that about Rizin earlier??
Andy Nguyen, recently did her best impersonation Conor McGregor.
Wearing a bikini, fur coat, MMA gloves, and her championship belt, Nguyen walked around pretending she was the popular UFC star.
Nguyen poked fun at herself for losing her King of the Cage atom-weight title last weekend.
When asked if she just lost on Saturday, Nguyen responded by trying to talk like McGregor.
“Yeah, but I got three of these belts, so who gives a fook”
Prior to losing her title, Nguyen won three other title fights in King of the Cage.
Additionally when asked about her Rizin Fight against Rena her reply was simple…
“Yah I’m fighting for Rizin next, but who the fook is Rena? ”
Not one to ever trash talk any of her opponents, it appears that perhaps Nguyen, took a little offense to her Rizin opponent chocking out a “picture” of her at the Rizin press conference, and is playing it back in her own way without directly attacking her opponent.
In the video below, you can watch Nguyen give her best McGregor impression. She may may not sound like Conor, but she sure looks good trying.
Nguyen is currently scheduled to fight in the quarterfinals of RIZIN’s atomweight tournament. On Oct. 15, Nguyen will fight undefeated atomweight fighter Rena Kubota in where one of the two are expected to do well and take home the final tournament earnings in the 1st RIZIN women’s Tournament event.
