Staredown! Starving, depleted Cris Cyborg is still huge and terrifying

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is sending Cristiane Justino to the Octagon for a catchweight main event of 140 pounds opposite Lina Lansberg at UFC Fight Night 95, the upcoming mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1, taking place on Sat., Sept. 24, 2016 inside Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil.

Earlier today, the promotion had "Cyborg" and "Elbow Princess" face off for the local media, which means we finally get to see how Justino and Lansberg stack up, even though the hometown hero is starving and depleted.


Justino (16-1) is also the Invicta FC featherweight champion and has already notched one win as a 140-pounder, smashing Leslie Smith at the UFC 198 pay-per-view (PPV) event back in May. Lansberg (6-1), meanwhile, has won six in a row with four knockouts.

Perhaps it's true that size doesn't matter?
