You can add Cris Cyborg to the list of UFC fighters releasing a book. Following in the fine tradition of Matt Hughes, Forrest Griffin, Ronda Rousey and Paige VanZant, Cyborg will be sharing short stories focused on her rise to fame and the lessons learned along the way. Here's the description:

If you are a fan of Cris Cyborg, we are set to announce some very exciting news! This December Pre orders will begin for an exclusive all access book about Cris Cyborg. This book will be an intimate look at stories in the life of Cristiane Justino which have formed and shaped the character MMA fans have grown to love as Cris Cyborg.

The collection of short stories, many of which are intimate life learning lessons will be gathered into a book guaranteed to inspire and touch the hearts of people from all cultures. A native of Curitiba Brazil, Cyborg immigrated to the United States in 2010 where she currently resides in Huntington Beach after successfully completing the legal immigration process in the USA and being rewarded with her American Citizenship. The book will show the struggles and triumphs a young girl growing up in Brazil who takes on the world in hopes of becoming World Champion.

It's just another sign that Cyborg isn't sitting around waiting for the UFC to help her do anything. She's been aggressively campaigning for a fight with Holly Holm over the past couple of months, and despite an angry tweet accusing the UFC of trying to cheapskate her, UFC president Dana White said after UFC 216 that he'd probably get the fight made.

That's good news for those hoping to see more of Cyborg in the UFC. Her contract is set to run out sometime this month, and if the Holm fight doesn't come together soon, it may not come together at all. That'd be too bad, since it's the biggest women's fight the UFC can put together without Ronda Rousey returning to the roost.

Pre-orders for Cyborg’s as of yet untitled first release start in December.
