Fuck You, Cris Cyborg Is Awesome

There’s a weird dog whistle commentary that goes on when some people talk about Cris “Cyborg” Justino, who’s probably the best female fighter on the planet.

People comment on her looks, they comment on the fact she once got popped for performance enhancing drugs, and they comment on the weird dance she’s had to do to find people willing to fight her.

What they haven’t done enough of — at least until now — is acknowledge the literal life-or-death commitment Cyborg has given to mixed martial arts.

People Care Too Much About Cyborg’s Steroid Past

Cris “Cyborg” Justino is an elite female mixed martial artist who once got caught using steroids.

It could be fairly argued that because she’s a woman who has gotten caught doing this, she’s had to face outsized criticism compared to the many, many high level males who’ve done the same.

Cyborg Is Fighting In The UFC And It’s (Partially) Conor’s Fault

Cris “Cyborg” Justino, the most dominant female MMA fighter outside of the UFC will now be fighting inside the UFC.

Cyborg is too heavy to compete in UFC’s current female weight classes, but the recent success ($$) of Conor McGregor’s catchweight fight has encouraged the promotion to do more non-weight class-based fights.

Hence, Cyborg vs. Leslie Smith at UFC 198.
