While appearing on ESPN‘s Ariel Helwani MMA Show, Amanda Nunes revealed that the reason her scheduled fight against Cris Cyborg was pushed back was because of a foot injury.
“We need some time to promote this fight. I still can’t kick very well; I still can’t run very well. I’m better, but I still need time for therapy.”
As previously reported, the fight was originally scheduled to take place on September 8th but won’t happen until December 29th (rumored).
