Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Report: ‘Cris Cyborg’ To Compete in Two Muay Thai Fights in One Night, Because She’s Just That Nasty

It hasn’t even been two weeks since Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino fought and won in MMA against Marloes Coenen at Invicta FC 6, but the new featherweight champion has booked not one but two Muay Thai fights for herself on August 25th in Thailand. “Cyborg will take on France’s top kickboxer Angelique Pitiot and Italy’s Annalisa Bucci, with one taking three rounds and the other two rounds,” Wombat Sports reports.

“Cyborg” represents the famed Brazilian Chute Boxe team, which has Muay Thai as its base, but according to the report, the fighter has never previously been to the kickboxing style’s motherland of Thailand. While many fighters travel to exotic locations in the weeks after fights for vacation, Justino is going to Thailand to fight two women back-to-back just because she can.

Say what you will about her questionable Tito Ortiz-driven decision of turning down a contract with the UFC, but this lady isn’t afraid to fight for her money, that’s for sure. We don’t know much about her two scheduled opponents but considering the fact that five rounds of shadow-boxing — much less actual fighting — gets us winded, we’re quite impressed with Cyborg’s latest goal.

Oh yeah, Kim Couture is also on the card, fighting Thai fighter Petchrocha Looksaikongdin. First off, we didn’t realize that “Sugar Free” (ugh) was still competing. Secondly, fighting someone with that many syllables in their name, in their own backyard, doesn’t seem like a great idea for Kim, who is no stranger to unfortunate beat-downs.

After the jump: Cris Cyborg destroys some broad named Edna in a Muay Thai rules bout back in 2006.

@ Le Penne

She kept Cyborg's manhood but she couldn't keep his name.

WTF is up with this Justino shit?

This is pretty smart, really. If Cyborg goes on a tear and destroys everything in her path for the next 12- 18 months, especially if she stays very active, she might not get (read female version, say 20%) Anderson Silva money but maybe she can get some (female) Hector Lombard money. Regardless of what happens with the Ronda division if she beats enough ass she can perhaps create a Cyborg division. At the very least she will get paid way more if Zuffa needs her than if Zuffa thinks she needs them.

If Tito knows anything it's how to squeeze some ducats out of DFW. He might be able to barely speak English but he does know how to get paid.
