UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Cyborg recently appeared in a music video for Danielle Bregoli, better known as the "Catch Me Outside" girl, Bhad Bhabie.
The two have apparently struck up a friendship because the UFC star has offered to help teach the musician martial arts.
“I invited her to go to my gym too,” Cyborg told TMZ Sports. “I would like to train her, show some disciplines of mixed martial arts, and show my work for her. I think it’s a great opportunity. I invited her to come and she’s gonna come to the gym and I will show a little bit about martial arts. She says she really likes street fights. The first day I met her she said, ‘I don’t like gloves, I like a street fight.’ So I’m gonna show a little bit about mixed martial arts for her. Soon we’re gonna train together and I think mixed martial arts teaches kid discipline. I think you learn a lot. When I started training I learned a lot, you know, respect. I think you learn a lot of things and kids should learn mixed martial arts for discipline.”
Bregoli initially gained prominence after an appearance on the Dr. Phil Show, but has since turned into a successful musician who is signed with Atlantic Records.
Cyborg even believes Bregoli can become an MMA fighter if the entertainment career doesn’t work out.
“We don’t know,” said Cyborg. “Maybe. If she likes street fights maybe she likes fighting in a cage. You can make amazing fight and get paid.”
UFC 232 takes place on Saturday, December 29 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
