Brazilian powerhouse Cris Cyborg continued her dominant run in the Ultimate Fighting Championship this weekend at UFC Fight Night 95, securing a dominant TKO win over a very game Lina Lansberg.
Amazingly, for Lansberg, the Swedish fighter managed to make it to the second round, further than many of Cyborg’s recent opponents. However, during the first round, Lansberg was hanging on for dear life, grappling with Cyborg to stop her vicious striking threat.
Cyborg went to work during the second, landing a plethora of combinations that closed Lansberg’s eye and landed a straight right that most likely broke the 34-year-old’s nose. That punch was followed by a takedown and a flurry of punches that secured the Brazilian her second victory inside the octagon.
Justino seemed unsure of her future in the post-fight interview, with the UFC yet to implement a 145-pound women’s division suited to the 31-year-old. Her dismay towards cutting wait to 135-pounds wouldn’t stop her stepping into the octagon with former UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, once again calling her out.
“I want Ronda to come back,” Justino told FOX Sports after her latest win. “I think she should show people even when you lose, it’s not the end of the world. You cannot give up.
“Come back for your fans and let’s make the fight for all the fans, for women’s MMA. I think everybody wants this fight and it would be amazing.”
For now, Santos continues to obliterate anyone in her way willing to fight at a catchweight of 140-pounds.
