Invicta FC 11 results: Cris Cyborg dominates, finishes Charmaine Tweet in under a minute

Esther Lin

Guess who's back!

Invicta Fighting Championships featherweight titleholder Cristiane Justino returned to the cage last evening (Fri., Feb. 27, 2015) after a lengthy layoff in the main event of Invicta FC 11 from the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles, California, and boy did "Cyborg" make a statement to the mixed martial arts (MMA) community live on UFC Fight Pass.

For a woman who believes Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is "scared" to fight her, Justino sure gave "Rowdy" a reason to shiver in her boots with her ferocious finish over Charmaine Tweet. After rocking Tweet with a vicious combination in the first 10 seconds of the fight, it was only a matter of time before "Cyborg" finished the job only moments later.

Tweet was obviously outmatched in this bout, and will be leaving California with what is likely a broken nose after just 46 seconds of work.

The vicious knockout win for the Brazilian sets her up perfectly for a battle against Rousey -- if the UFC champ can defeat Cat Zingano tomorrow night in the main event of UFC 184.

Now the only question is, can "Cyborg" cut to 135 pounds?

She has already failed in her attempts before, but the Invicta champ assured fight fans in her post fight interview she will "try her best" to make the weight in order to finally settle the score with Rousey.
