Surprised? Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos is back after over a year layoff with yet another first round finish, as she TKO’s the very tough Fiona Muxlow at Invicta FC 5. Cyborg proved to still be an explosive phenom in the cage, picking her shots and loading up. Veteran Referee John McCarthy stops the fight standing out of sympathy for Muxlow in the first.
It’s very clear that the former champ is still on a different level than her opponents in the featherweight division (145 lbs.), leaving the question, when will we see her UFC debut. Unfortunately, much of the heavy hitters luster was lost in in 2011 when she was caught with an anabolic steroid in her PED test, after a first round decimation of Hiroko Yamanaka.
