CRIS 'CYBORG' JUSTINO COMES TO UFC: WHO'S NEXT? IT DOESN'T MATTER
By Mike Bohn, rollingstone.com
Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate and Holly Holm are the most recognizable names in women's MMA. But Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino might be the most dominant, and she plans to prove it yet again on Saturday at UFC 198.
Simply put: Justino is an utter destroyer. Unbeaten over her past 16 contests, she hasn't lost since her professional debut in May 2005, and of her 15 career wins, Justino has put away 13 opponents by knockout, eight in the first round and five in less than one minute.
Yet the platform of UFC 198, which airs on pay-per-view from Curitiba, Parana, Brazil (10 p.m. ET), is greater than anything Justino (15-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has experienced in her career. But it probably won't surprise you to learn she's not shrinking from the spotlight, or he opponent, Leslie Smith (8-6-1, 2-2). Simply put, this is "Cyborg's" time to shine.
