- Cris “Cyborg” unleashed her pent-up fury in the cage Friday night.
Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos brought the pain in her Invicta Fighting Championships debut. After serving a yearlong steroid suspension, Santos mauled her bloodied opponent, Fiona Muxlow, who, to her credit, never gave up. Referee “Big” John McCarthy stopped Cyborg’s relentless onslaught and awarded her a first-round TKO victory in 3:46.
The talk is still of the seemingly inevitable major matchup between Santos and UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. But next for Santos is Marloes Coenen for the featherweight championship at Invicta FC 6 in either June or July. “I feel terrified,” Coenen joked at the post-fight press conference.
