Who is Cyborg fighting next? UFC Brasilia free fight showcases Lina 'Elbow Princess' Lansberg

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is sending Cristiane Justino into the UFC Fight Night 95 main event for the upcoming mixed martial arts (MMA) fight card on FOX Sports 1, taking place on Sat., Sept. 24, 2016 inside Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil.

Who is she fighting?

The casual combat sports fan may not be intimately familiar with Lina Lansberg (6-1), but "Elbow Princess" has been tearing a hole through the regional scene since 2012, winning six straight fights with four devastating finishes, like her technical knockout win over Emma Delaney in the embedded video above.


Justino vs. Lansberg will be contested at 140 pounds -- assuming "Cyborg" can make weight -- because the promotion does not have a featherweight division for women and never will, according to UFC President Dana White, who is still pushing for this dream bout.
