Correia dedicates UFC Mexico City win to sister battling breast cancer
“I was thinking about my sister throughout my entire camp because she was doing chemotherapy, she lost hair, and I really wish I could have been there with her this entire time,” Correia said. “I was away from her for three months in camp, following her treatment online, the symptoms she was experiencing, and I saw how strong she was. I was fighting a girl there and she was fighting cancer. That motivated me a lot. That made me stronger. This joy is for her and my family.”
“Pitbull” will spend a few days in Mexico before flying back to Brazil to be with her sister, who is expected to undergo mastectomy. “I won in the Octagon now, and she will win in life,” Correia said.
