The former StrikeForce champion Cristiane Santos (10-1 (1) MMA) has not competed in over a year, Cyborg maintained a strong training schedule the entire time and appears to be in great shape. One change Cris Cyborg has made in the past year involves her management team. Cyborg has joined former UFC Champion Tito Ortiz' (16-11-1 UFC) management team PrimeTime 360 and as a result, she has also been able to train with Ortiz.

 Tito Ortiz is known as one of the most brutal ground and pound fighters in history and he has been passing that knowledge down to his client Cris. Cyborg, a constant student of the game feels it is important to learn something new each day in practice. As Cris prepares for her April debut in Invicta, she is extremely excited for the opportunity. Invicta has a stacked 145lbs weight class and provides a solid stage for female competitors at this time.

When asked if she has a chance to view the inaugural UFC women's title fight between Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche, Cris Cyborg had nothing but compliments to give. She said that both fighters did very well and it was an exciting fight for the fans. 

Cris Cyborg is a true athlete and loves to compete. She is anxious to get back into the cage and to compete; regardless of winning or losing, Cris always does her best and looks for a big finish and exciting fight. Cyborg honestly loves to perform and learn about herself through competition, but remains humble. She says that you can never think you are the best and try to learn and work hard everyday. The former champion says that how she trains in the gym is how she will perform in the cage and high intensity work outs are important to that. Cris Cyborg concludes by saying that she does not need to prove anything to anyone, but for any doubters wait to see what she does in April at her Invicta debut.
