Cyborg Justino, formerly Cyborg Santos, has been able to keep herself in the headlines while staying only moderately busy in 2013. She made her return from a steroid suspension to take the Invicta featherweight title by beating up Marloes Coenen a second time, and has since been led by Tito Ortiz into Lion Fight’s muay thai promotion on AXSTV as she waits for her next MMA battle...
Were you one of the many who weren’t interested in women’s MMA until the UFC decided to add the ladies to its roster? If you’ve got a few minutes of your day to spare – of course you do, nobody is really working even if you’re at work on the last Friday before Christmas, right? – watch the only women’s Strikeforce fight that really matters at this point.
It took place...
After more than a year away from the sport for a steroid suspension, Cris Cyborg has started right where she left off - finishing her opponents via strikes. Credit to Marloes Coenen, she lasted longer inside of the cage with Cyborg than anyone since, well, Marloes Coenen.
You can watch history being made at this past Saturday night's main event in it's entirety below.
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.
Cyborg battered Coenen to capture the inaugural Invicta featherweight...
I'm an equal opportunities MMA enthusiast. Whether the competitors are male or female I judge fights on the level of enjoyment they give me, or lack there of. If a promotion puts on a quality event it doesn't bother me whether it's all male fights, all female fights or if its called UFC, WSOF, Invicta etc. I really enjoyed Invicta FC 6. You won't hear me saying ...
If Cyborg and Rousey ever fight, Ronda better work on her standup and be able to get the fight to the ground.

There really isn’t much to say, Cyborg pulled a cyborg, and absolutely demolished Marloes Coenen, a supposedly newfangled, bulkier Marloes Coenen mind you, en route to a 4th round TKO win. My God. 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...

This article is not meant to undermine Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Marloes Coenen or any of the other female fighters who work admirably to promote themselves and women’s mixed martial arts. What I am saying, is that Rose Namajunas may be the best thing for the continued promotion of WMMA, especially when...
