‘Cyborg’ to make 135 lb. debut in December with Invicta on Fight Pass
Every since Ronda Rousey became the UFC champion fans and media have been talking about a show down with Cris 'Cyborg' Justino. However, Cyborg has always fought in the featherweight division, but this December will take the first step towards a potential bout with Ronda Rousey:
Cristiane Justino is headed to bantamweight in December, her manager and promoter today told MMAjunkie.
“Cyborg” Justino (12-1) is targeted for Invicta FC 10 against a TBA opponent, Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp said. She was targeted on two previous occasions to meet Ediane Gomes before injuries and event scheduling nixed the matchup. Justino could make her second appearance at 135 pounds in February or March, Knapp added.
It’s not yet decided whether Justino will vacate her current Invicta FC featherweight title, Knapp said. “Cyborg” won the title one year ago with a fourth-round TKO of Marloes Coenen.
