In an interview with MMA Junkie, she stated the following in regards to Cris Cyborg:

“My first impression was she’s not as big as I thought she was gonna be. But all joking aside, obviously Cyborg is a trailblazer in the sport, you know, she’s a pioneer. She’s a trailblazer and the only problem with that is I’m on this trail now.”
