Cindy Dandois Says The UFC has Cut Her


Despite only competing in just one fight under the UFC banner, female bantamweight star Cindy Dandois has been cut by the promotion.

Dandois made the announcement herself via Instagram:

Carla Esparza vs. Zhang Weili Scheduled For UFC 281 In November

#fighting for the #UFC... ---- a #dream that came true. I would've done Anything to be able To do that. I think I prooved trough the years that I am a #legit 145 lbs #featherweight #fighter. I have #notable wins over the best... when that #featherweightdivision opened I was Thrilled. The main Reason why I wanted To fight in the @ufc was because I dreamed of fighting the best... in my eyes that is @criscyborg ... I begged for years To Get that fight. When #criscyborg got signed I knew if I wanted that fight I had To be in the same Organisation. I did everything I had in my power To make it there. Even if I had To fight at bantamweight for a while because everything was blocked in my own division... as long as I was active, And had fights I had in my mind Every step would bring me closer To fighting my idol. ---- Today I realise I Will never Get that chance. the UFC doesnt seem To be interested in ever giving me that fight. It pains my heart But I guess I Will have To let that dream go. What I learned in time was that if one door closes, another one opens. I am on a #mission To Find myself again and I hope To have a New #home Soon where I can be myself And be an Active fighter at a Healthy weight... I still want To Thank the UFC, To @danawhite , @seanshelby, @ufcfightpass for granting me te honour To represent my country in their #octagon... To allow me To fly To #neverland even though it was only once And to be the first #Belgian #female #UFCfighter. To @criscyborg I want To say #congrats on that well #deserved #belt! #God is Great... who knows one day, Some day we Will meet... #willbecontinued ---- #notgivingup #mma #wmma #goaldigger -- #Battlecat
