Cristiane “Cris Cyborg” Justino wasted no time in finding her next opponent. The 32-year-old recently defeated Holly Holm in a unanimous decision win on December 30th, 2017 at UFC 219.
When Holm and Cyborg went the distance, it was the first-time in nearly a decade, as she defeated Yoko Takahaski in EliteXC “Heat” on October 4th, 2008.
Justin and Megan Anderson have been beefing on social media. And after the UFC saw this, they gave the champion what she wanted.
Justino is 19-1-1 in her MMA career, including a perfect 18-0-1 in her last 19 fights since her first loss in her MMA debut on Erica Paes on May 17th, 2005.
She is also 4-0 in the Octagon with the UFC. She had three straight knockouts in the company before the unanimous decision to “The Preacher’s Daughter” to end 2017.
Justino has never had a fight just weeks after another one in a quick turnaround. She will have about a month to prepare.
Anderson is 8-2 in her MMA career, including four straight wins in Invicta FC. She won her first Invicta FC bout to Cindy Dandois on September 12th, 2015 in a triangle choke submission.
This will be Anderson’s first bout in the UFC for the featherweight. While the UFC has not confirmed the fight yet, Cyborg said the fight will go down on February 10th in Perth, Australia at UFC 221.
It is not clear if this bout would be the co-main event. The main event is slated to be Luke Rockhold and Robert Whittaker.
