Cindy Dandois talks PFL lightweight division, upcoming Harrison vs. Pacheco bout, Megan Anderson rematch and more

The ‘Battlecat’ Cindy Dandois has had quite the year, fighting a total of five times and ending it on a four-fight winning streak.

Dandois is on a four-fight win streak.

After starting the year with a controversial split decision loss to Iony Razafiarison back in March, Dandois (16-5-0) has rebounded with an incredible four-fight win streak, finishing all those victories by way of submissions.

A former UFC and Bellator MMA fighter, Dandois has been paying close attention to Professional Fighters League (PFL) and their women’s lightweight division. The 35-year-old has previously had success of her own in the 155-pound weight-class, handing King Reina her first MMA loss back in 2017.

Dandois revealed during a recent chat with WMMA Rankings that she has her sights set on competing in PFL’s 2020 lightweight tournament.

I love PFL, sad they did not ask me to compete for them this year.” Dandois said. “I really hope Larissa [Pacheco] gets the win on December 31, but Kayla [Harrison] is a great fighter too. Look forward to seeing it“.

Of course I’d love to fight for PFL. I think I am a hard fight for everybody. People can talk bad, but my record says I am 16-5 and 13 of my wins are finishes. If it comes to the judges I lose mostly because of my style I guess, but I have never missed weight, and I show up to fight and finish” she continued. “And during all this I still teach full-time, raise five kids all by myself and run my own gym, Lynx MMA. Think I deserve a little respect for that.”

Dandois owns a notable Invicta FC win over Megan Anderson.

After fighting on the regional scene for much of 2019, Dandois hopes to find a home with a promotion in 2020, preferably at 145 or 155-pounds.

Hopefully in 2020 I can finally find a home in my own healthy weight. 145 or 155 for PFL, Rizin, ONE, Bellator. Or if Megan [Anderson] wants a rematch, I am also game.” Dandois said.

Dandois is a pioneer of the sport who has been fighting professionally for over a decade. She owns notable victories over the likes of Megan Anderson, Marloes Coenen, Jorina Baars, King Reina and Jessamyn Duke.
