Video: Cris Cyborg just ate a giant tarantula on a stick (seriously)

So here’s the kind of thing nightmares are made of (blame Middle Easy).

Invicta FC Featherweight Champion Cristiane Justino is no stranger to eating souls. But what about eight-legged freaks skewered on the streets of Cambodia? I suppose there’s only one way to find out.

The crunchy way, as travel writer Michael Turtle explains:

As I put my fork into one of the spiders, I hear a cracking like a shell breaking. The shivers up my spine make no noise, though. I lift the arachnid to my mouth and bite first into the legs. They break easily beneath my teeth and taste a lot like a prawn tail. It takes a few chews before I can swallow them down but it’s not nearly as unpleasant on my palette as I expected.

It takes like digested insects – not like chicken, as the waiter had promised. It’s not disgusting but neither is it a particularly enjoyable sensation. The more I chew it, the more it turns into a hardened little ball. It’s the reverse of that caramel lolly I had imagined.

This was the closest I ever got a spider of that size.

“Cyborg” and her appetite for arachnids is currently awaiting her next assignment. And since Ronda Rousey is booked to throw hands against Amanda Nunes at the upcoming UFC 207 pay-per-view (PPV) event this December in Las Vegas, Nevada (details), the Brazilian will have to find something besides fried monsters to keep herself occupied.
