Last week, Cyborg told the press that she is no longer interested in fighting smaller 135-pound women, she wants the UFC to sign people from her own division. The Brazilian has slated both Sorenson and Dandois as potential opponents, however, Sorenson believes Dandois is stylistically a bad matchup for Cyborg.
“I think Cindy could eventually be a good fight for Cyborg. But her striking needs more time to develops and evolve. Rushing in for the clinch/takedown won’t work against Cyborg, stylistically it’s a bad match up at the moment. I think that’s why I’d match up well with Cyborg, I have a strong Muay Thai background and, like Cyborg, am a brown belt in Bjj.” Sorenson said.
The 31-year-old is by far one of the most exciting rising prospects in the 145-pound division. She owns notable wins over Nicco Montano, Moriel Charneski and Jessica-Rose Clark. However, one of her most impressive wins came last July when she submitted the previously undefeated Helena Kolesnyk in just 3 minutes and 12 seconds of the very first-round.
Sorenson is gritty and tough, she has a no quit attitude and is always looking for the finish, making her fights amongst the most anticipated on the cards. Her few career losses come by way of controversial split decisions, with the bouts themselves very exciting wars.
