Finally, after years of speculation and wondering, Cris “Cyborg” Justino is finally fighting in the UFC. Of course, it’s not against Ronda Rousey, it’s in Brazil and at a catchweight of 140 pounds, and her opponent is ham-and-egger Leslie Smith, but whatever! She’s here! And props to Smith for taking this fight!
As usual, Cyborg spends the first minute analyzing her foe like a Terminator. Then comes the flurry of punches – deadly accurate and packing nuclear warheads – and Smith goes down. The former Invicta FC champ follows her down and continues pummeling her, and the ref jumps in while Smith is turtled and eating knuckles.
Result: Cris Cyborg def. Leslie Smith via TKO (Punches) at 1:21, R1
