Invicta FC’s Ediane Gomes believes she is next deserving of a shot at UFC featherweight champion, Cris Cyborg.
Gomes (11-4-0) is a veteran of the sport who has been fighting since 2007. Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, she now fights out of Coconut Creek, Florida, and trains at the American Top Team along with some of the UFC’s biggest superstars including UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley, and former UFC strawweight champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk. The 37-year-old has not lost to anyone who actively competes at featherweight and owns notable victories over Pam Sorenson and Leslie Smith.
The Brazilian recently took to her Instagram page to release a passionate statement about what it would mean for her to fight Cyborg. She certainly makes her case, take a look below.
It's so strange what happens to me, The Brazilian media tries to hide me out from everything. They try to erase me from everything. I believe my light is so bright that you guys can't see me. I hate the media from my country. So disgusting. So manipulated. I remember when I fought with a man, it disgusted me because everything you saw on the TV 📺 was about me and my friends. I am the 2nd one before @criscyborg that has the MOST WINS on 145LBS. I have 11 wins at 145 I never lost at 145, expect to @rondarousey when ai fought her in 7 days short notice !!! Now if something BAD happens in my personal life , or any other fighters , oh man I would be everywhere in the news… because you guys suck!!! If I would be you , I would be ashamed to have that character! This is not righteous !! MEDIA BRAZILEIRA !!! And for those m* that thinks I am sleeping, keep thinking because I am more than alive !! I won't retire before I fight with @criscyborg , I won't pass away from this life without fighting with her !! And to you guys that tries to destroy me , you guys are nothing but a raw stink piece of meat in this earth 🌏! GOD IS FAITHFUL !!! 2O18. We will meet together in the octagon @criscyborg !!! Happy 2O18 to all my real friends and for my enemies that I know it's a lot of them, it hurts not to have a character like me !!! Keep hiding the truth underneath the mat !! Either we kill each other or we bond together !! 👊🏻👊🏻. #invictafc #ufc #ufcfightpass #fighterslife #145lbs #ultimatefighter #iamhere #donttrytohide #edianegomes @tvcombate_oficial @danawhite @mickmaynard2 @wmmabrasil #futurechamp #wmma #mma #wmmanews #wmmabrasil #mmajunkie
