PICTURES: UFC champ Cris Cyborg visits children at hospital in Curitiba

Newly crowned UFC featherweight champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino paused her Brazil media tour to visit children at a hospital in her hometown of Curitiba, Brazil.

The champ released an official statement through the UFC. “These kids are much more than champions– they fight every day for their lives,” she said. “And a small gesture like this one makes a huge difference in their lives. I always talk about this, about the importance of fighting for those who can’t fight. It’s so good to make someone happy because it makes us happy, as well. It was very gratifying to come here today,” she concluded.

“Amarás o Senhor teu Deus de todo o teu coração, de toda a tua alma, de todo o teu entendimento e com toda a tua força! O segundo mandamento é: Amarás o teu próximo como a ti mesmo! Não existe outro mandamento maior do que estes” (Marcos 12, 30-31). Vamos lutar por aqueles que não podem lutar! @brandtstebbins O cinturão ficou no lugar certo… aonde só tem campeões! ================= "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your understanding and with all your strength! The second commandment is: You shall love your neighbor as yourself! There is no other commandment greater than these "(Mark 12: 30-31). Let's fight for those who can not fight! @brandtstebbins The belt was in the right place … where there are only champions! #criscyborg #cyborgnation
