BEST OF MAXIM

If this is Cyborg off steroids, then I guess it makes sense that the Cyborg on steroids didn’t leave the first round very often.
Coenen looked good at first, keeping her distance and...
Does UFC bantamweight queen Ronda Rousey REALLY want any of Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino (pictured)? For that matter, does anyone want a piece of Cyborg?
Based off the mauling Cyborg put on Marloes Coenen on Saturday night at Invita 6, I couldn’t blame anyone for responding with a resounding NO to those questions.

You won't hear me saying ...
