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:
#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
In her lone UFC appearance, the now cut Dandois suffered a unanimous decision loss to Alexis Davis at UFC Fight Night 108.
Prior to her one off with the UFC, the fighter competed three times in Invicta FC and earned a submission win over UFC veteran Jessamyn Duke.
