Why is Christian UFC Fighter Wearing Hijab?

UFC FIGHTER WEARING HIJAB !!! Check out this lovely and personal tutorial video we found on social media conducted by UFC fighter Cristina “Cyborg” Santos along side Desert Force lightweight champion Yousef Wehbe. Although being a devoted christian, Santos is shown wearing a hijab as a sign of support to (muslim) women all around the world regardless of their religion and background. Cristina runs a support program called “Pink Belt Fitness” aimed to empower females throughout the globe.

One of the reasons I started my Pink Belt Fitness By Cris Cyborg program was because I saw a need to unite women of all religions, ages, and cultures in a way that they could empower each other and motivate one another to achieve more with a support system!

I am a believer in Jesus Christ and a devout Christian, I am wearing the Hijab, a symbol of modesty and protection used by many women around the world, not as a sign of religion but as a symbol of support for all women around the world.

Combat Sports should be an opportunity shared by all!

Thank you Desert Force champion Yousef Wehbe and Phuket Top Team MMA Training Camp for helping me share my techniques!
