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.

Cyborg Revisited

Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino considered the best female mixed martial artist outside of the UFC.

And the reason why she’s outside of the UFC is mainly because there isn’t an actual weight class for her to fight in.

A lot of Cyborg’s career arc has revolved around will she or won’t she fight Ronda Rousey. It’s a superfight that’ll probably never happen.

As such, Sarah theorized that it’s time Cyborg start being viewed on her own merits as opposed to as a potential Rousey opponent.

She wrote about this for Fightland.

Cyborg’s Path To Rousey

Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino

It may be unfurling with the deliberate pace of a Carnivale story arc, but a clash between toughest-woman-on-Earth Ronda Rousey and pretty much her only perceived challenger Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino is slowly, inevitably, inching closer to happening.

There remains only one problem: Cyborg is too big.

Justino isn’t in Rousey’s weight class. And if she wants to compete with the much smaller Rousey she’s going to have to shrink down to the champ’s size.

She’s apparently going to attempt this now and Sarah wrote about it for Fightland.

Go here to red the story.
