Video: Cris Cyborg beats Olympic wrestler -- in wrestling -- ahead of Rio 2016

Invicta FC featherweight champion Cristiane Justino, who moonlights as a catchweight attraction for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), is one of the most dangerous strikers in all of mixed martial arts (MMA), though I'm sure most of you already knew that by now.

Turns out she's equally dangerous as a wrestler.

The proof is in the proverbial pudding, as "Cyborg" recently posted a Facebook video of her win over Aline Ferreira, who is currently representing their native Brazil in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

See for yourself:


Justino (16-1, 1 NC) will return to the Octagon for UFC Fight Night 95 on FOX Sports 1, taking place on Sat., Sept. 24, 2016 inside Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, when she meets promotion newcomer and dangerous Muay Thai striker Lina Lansberg (more on that fight here).
