Halle Berry stepped into the octagon with the Women's Featherweight champ.
In preparation for her upcoming role in "John Wick 3: Parabellum," Halle Berry has reportedly been doing some heavy MMA training including a recent session with UFC star Cris Cyborg at her gym in Huntington Beach, California.
The 52-year old movie star took to instagram to share a face-off photo with Cyborg, along with the caption, "From the red carpet to the ring 😂 - so inspired by your tenacity, @criscyborg - can’t thank you enough for your hospitality! @peterleethomas @criscyborggym."
"John Wick 3: Parabellum" is set to hit theaters in May 2019.
Cyborg (20-1, 1 no-contest) will take on Amanda Nunes (16-4) in the co-main event of the highly anticipated UFC 232 PPV on December 29. Cyborg, the Women's Featherweight champion, last fought in March at UFC 222 when she defeated Yana Kunitskaya by way of first round TKO.
In a recent interview with Fansided, Cyborg spoke about 'teaching Nunes a lesson' when they step into the octagon one month from now.
“When she called me out last year at first I didn’t want to fight her,” Cyborg tells Fansided. “I wanted to see all the women divisions run by the Brazilians. Myself, Amanda, [Jessica] Andrade, we could have all been champions and I thought it would bring pride back to all of Brazil. But Nunes is from a Team of Creontes. At American Top Team it is normal for teammates to fight each other. She called me out last year but then wanted a year before we can fight. When I fight her Dec. 29 it will be for everyone in Brazil, and it will be to teach Nunes a lesson about respect.”
