Make no mistake about it Cris Cyborg is the most dominant female fighter in the history of mixed martial arts. Novice lovers of the sport will assert that Ronda Rousey is the ideal female to compete at the game, but a simple glance at their recordings demonstrates that Rousey has some serious work to do when she needs to capture Cyborg.
Having a career that has been obscured by a PED controversy and using a big-time fight in the world’s top MMA promotion eluding her up until 2016, the 32-year-old Brazilian eventually debuted in the UFC in UFC 198 in Curitiba, Brazil. She shot on Leslie Smith at a 140-pound catchweight fight that she won over the first two minutes.
For her next bout at the UFC, Cyborg took on Lina»Elbow Princess» Lansberg at Brasilia, Brazil. As a huge -1200 favored, Cyborg took Lansberg out at the next round, winning by TKO.
Having a career record of 20-1 using a no contest after she tested positive for a PED at 2011, all but two of her successes were completed by knockout or technical knockout. The barbarous striker had 12 straight T/KO wins and ended six of her prior nine battles in the first round before Holly Holm was able to go the distance.
