Surprise! Cris Cyborg randomly drug tested ahead of Invicta 15

Former Strikeforce featherweight champion Cristiane Justino, who is currently ruling the roost at 145 pounds under the Invicta FC banner, was randomly drug tested ahead of her upcoming fight in November, which is expected to feature the Brazilian's debut at 140 pounds.

That's halfway to Ronda Rousey, in case you're just joining us.

"Today in my dance class more surprise from the athletic commission," Justino said on Instagram. "After the new rules I may have been the first athlete!!! Equal rights for all athletes, let's go!"

I would have enjoyed a pic of her dancing, as well, but stalkers beggars can't be choosers.

"Cyborg" failed for steroids back in 2012, but has since tested clean in each of her fights (including this one).

Justino does not yet have an opponent for the November fight card, airing live on UFC Fight Pass and expected to feature the strawweight headliner between 115-pound champion Livia Renata Souza and undefeated top contender Alexa Grasso.

Stay tuned.
