Priscila Cachoeira Speaks Out Defending His RingSide Team

Priscila Cachoeira Speaks Out Defending His RingSide Team
6th February, 2018

Priscila Cachoeira had a bad day facing Valentina Shevchenko in the cage, in a fight which served as the co-headliner at Mangueirinho Gymnasium in Belem, Para, Brazil, was Cachoeira’s promotional debut, as well as Shevchenko’s (15-3 MMA, 4-2 UFC) first flyweight bout.

It was a one sided beat down and Shevchenko was able to submit her opponent in the second round but Cachoeira injured Her knee in the process and will be waiting to have a knee surgery for ACL and meniscus tears.

The fight had spacked much criticism both on the referee Mario Yamasaki  for letting a mismatched one-sided beating go on for so long, the promotion for allowing such and her coach and corner men for not stopping the fight when they saw her limits but the fighter has broken the silence via her Instagram handle defending her Coach and reinstating her status of facing anyone.


“Hi, everyone. Just stopping by to say everything is OK. Took me a while to speak because I didn’t have my cell on me and I was at the hospital… So… I apologize to my fans, friends and family, who threw a party to watch my fight. I caught an extremely tough fighter, who I’m a fan of, and on fight time I wasn’t the real ‘Pedrita.’ Those who know me and are around me on my day-to-day, know how I could have performed. And even having injured my knee early in the fight, I went until the end because I don’t know quitting. I will need surgery on my ACL and meniscus. And there are a lot of people talking about how I fought the top one, etc, that my master told me to shut up and blah blah. Let’s go… I will fight any fighter in the world, regardless of her standings. I’d fight Valentina another 10 times without even thinking twice. Those who pick easy battles aren’t true warriors. And the treatment and the intimacy I have with my master… Those on the outside don’t know anything to criticize it. This isn’t master and student. It’s father and daughter. And no one will say how he’s supposed to treat me. And about throwing the towel: this is PRVT, and we’re the ones who know my limits. Throwing the towel, never. Thank you all for the messages of kindness and support I’ve been getting. I’m sure I have gotten a family for the rest of my life. And to those criticizing: I don’t give a damn, I will come back stronger. ‘A moment will not erase an entire history’”
