Former Strikeforce featherweight champion and reigning Invicta FC 145-pound queenpin Cristiane Justino finally made her Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) debut in a special catchweight bout of 140 pounds, thanks to the good sportsmanship of bantamweight veteran Leslie Smith.
Maybe “Cyborg” can send her a thank you card in the hospital.
Justino clobbered “The Peacemaker” on the UFC 198 pay-per-view (PPV) fight card on Sat. night (May 14, 2016) inside the massive Arena da Baixada soccer stadium in Curitiba, Brazil, with a first round blitzkrieg that looked more like a snuff film.
Sorry but there’s not much to unpack here — Justino just walked right through her in vintage “Cyborg” fashion. Expect talk of a bantamweight drop — and Ronda Rousey grudge match — to start heating up.
