Cheyanne Buys says her life changed on Saturday night.

During her fight at UFC Vegas 33, Buys finished off her opponent Gloria de Paula in the co-main event.

During her postfight interview Buys raised some eyebrows when she said that she was completely broke after recently moving to Vegas.


“Man it’s been a long road to get here, it’s been a crazy fight camp for me, I left me home in Dallas and I just packed up, I left my home with everything in it…I’m broke as hell, I mean I am so broke, I got a loan just so I can get a house here.”

After receiving the $50k bonus for performance of the night, an emotional Buys revealed that she was negative in her bank account and was going to use a large chunk of the money to pay off a $15k loan she recently got to move to Vegas and train.

“I was so broke my whole life because of this sport but it’s so worth it to me because I love this sport”
