Invicta 6: Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino Destroys Marloes Coenen (Complete Video)

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...

Cris Cyborg brutalizes Marloes Coenen to gain the Invicta featherweight belt.

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...
