Cyborg is on her way, if not already, to becoming the most accomplished fighter in the MMA world. Be it male or female, replicating what Cyborg has pulled off with her career isn’t going to be an easy task.

She has been more than successful in all the promotional companies she’s tried her hand at. Cyborg is a former featherweight champion in Invicta FC, Strikeforce, and the UFC, as well as the current Bellator Women’s Featherweight titleholder.

She secured her belt after she defeated Julia Budd at Bellator 238 in January 2020. This took her tally to 4 promotions where she’s successfully held titles. After her title win, Cyborg spoke to Fight Library and said that her hunt for gold doesn’t end with MMA.

“I’ve won all the belts in MMA, maybe I need to add another one from boxing to my resume.”

Cris Cyborg is a great boxer too!

Cris ‘Justino’ Cyborg has over the years sparred with great boxers. She has had sessions with some of the biggest names from female boxing, including the two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and middleweight champion Claressa Shields.

Cyborg recently uploaded a video on her YouTube channel, where she was inside the ring with current WBA Interim Super Welterweight Champion Raquel Miller.

Through the video, it was clear that Cyborg isn’t new to the world of boxing. She is, in fact, great with a set of boxing gloves. The former UFC featherweight champ put on an insane display of skills that made it seem like she’s a titleholder in boxing and not MMA. She held her ground quite well and delivered some devastating uppercuts and explosive combinations. Her quick feet and swift head movements were also something to take note of.
