CRISTIANO Ronaldo's partner Georgina Rodriguez is being trained up by an MMA fighter ahead of joining other Wags at the World Cup, The Sun can reveal.
Georgina, 28, wants to be fighting fit for the FIFA tournament in Qatar next month, which will be watched by billions around the globe.
She'll be cheering Portuguese ace Ronaldo, 37, from the stands in what will likely be his final World Cup.
And in preparation, the stunning model and influencer has turned to Manchester-based hard man Lincoln Strong to get her ready for kick off.
Georgina has been getting private lessons from shaven-headed Strong at the Cheshire mansion she shares with Man Utd striker Ronaldo and their kids.
And while she's made no secret about her continued love of ballet – regularly posting about it on Instagram – she has kept her new passion under wraps.

But tattooed tough guy Strong let the cat out of the bag with footage he posted on Instagram, showing Georgina let fly with a volley of punches and kicks during one gruelling session.
Ricky Hatton fan Lincoln, who has notched up an impressive six wins in his nine MMA fights, wrote alongside the video: “Some pads with Georgina – getting better everytime.”
He has also accompanied the former £10-an-hour shop worker to boxing champ Hatton’s Manchester gym to film scenes for the second series of Netflix hit reality show ‘I Am Georgina’.
The sultry Spaniard posed for a selfie alongside Strong after working up a sweat in the ring at Hattons Gym, which he described as a “great morning filming.”

Fighter Lincoln has been described by combat sports media outlet Fightwatch UK as “very intelligent on the feet and skilled with his unique movement patterns”.
The glowing write-up, which focused on the fact five of his victories came from KOs or technical knockouts, labelled his punches as “vicious” and said: “It is definitely worth keeping an eye on Strong.”
However, it appears Strong's last professional fight was in August 2020.
Wags from all over the world will descend on Qatar next month to follow their superstar other-halves.
England Wags will include Jordan Pickford's missus Megan Davison, Jack Grealish's girlfriend Sasha Attwood and Harry Kane's other half, Katie Goodland.
On Monday we revealed the Three Lions Wags have been issued a list of do’s and don’ts to avoid a World Cup crisis in Qatar.
England chiefs are taking no chances in the strict Gulf state and warned the glamourous group: “You are not above the law.”
Wags have been told to “dress modestly” in public and at stadiums and warned public displays of affection will “not be tolerated”.
They must not drink alcohol or swear in public, play loud music, sing, shout or act “inappropriately” during the call to prayer.
Littering, illegal in Qatar and punishable by a fine of up to £6,000 and a year in jail, is also forbidden.
Last month The Sun revealed how Georgina tells fans in the second series of the Netflix show about her rags-to-riches life and how her loving family brought her back from the brink of despair after the death of one of her twins.
Netflix has confirmed ‘I Am Georgina’ will return soon but has yet to announce the date.
The Argentinian-born beauty and her partner of six years Ronaldo, who confirmed their loss on April 18, named their surviving girl Bella Esmeralda.
