Pam Sorenson: “Cindy Dandois is stylistically a bad matchup for Cyborg, I’d match up well against her”

Invicta FC featherweight Pam Sorenson does not believe Cindy Dandois matches up well against UFC featherweight champion, Cris Cyborg.

Sorenson believes she has what it takes to capture the UFC featherweight title from Cris Cyborg.

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 MontanoMoriel 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.

  1. Cristiane Cyborg Justino was so happy to be drinking that UFC kool-aid she never cared about anything else but being in the UFC. The UFC never has shown any interest in signing female featherweights, so she will continue to fight whoever the UFC throws in front of her. She signed the UFC contract and re-upped on it in October 2017. She chose the money and no one is blaming her for that.
