Cris Cyborg is the most dominant female fighter in mixed martial arts (MMA) and currently the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s featherweight champion, so it should not surprise you that she gets her own video blog ahead of this weekend’s return to the cage.

The Brazilian headlines the upcoming UFC 222 pay-per-view (PPV) event opposite Invicta FC import Yana Kunitskaya, taking place this Saturday night (March 3, 2018) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This will mark the second title defense for Cyborg (19-1, 1 NC), who turned away former bantamweight champion Holly Holm in the UFC 219 main event last December. Prior to that, the former Strikeforce titleholder smashed Tonya Evinger, following a pair of catchweight wins over Lina Lansberg and Leslie Smith.
