Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

The End Begins: Cris Cyborg’s Bantamweight Debut Set For Invicta 10 on December 5th

A slightly slimmer yet equally terrifying Cris Cyborg is heading our way, y’all.

Although the fighter sometimes known as Cristiane Justino has been teasing a cut to 135 lbs ever since she had a doctor say that she was not physically capable of cutting to 135 lbs, and even though her last (muay Thai) match saw her get tooled on the feet for the first time in any capacity, there’s little denying that Cyborg is the biggest/only true challenge currently available for Ronda Rousey. (If one of you even mentions Bethe Correia, so help me God I will set you on fire.)

The problem is, Cyborg walks around at approximately one and a half Frankie Edgars, which makes a drop to the bantamweight division (aka Rousey’s House) seem nearly impossible. But like the mad scientists from the future who built Cristiane out of titanium and bear hide once said, “Nothing is impossible.”

As such, the UFC announced this morning that Cyborg will in fact be making her bantamweight debut at Invicta 10 on December 5th. Justino’s opponent has yet to be named, likely because finding someone willing to face almost certain death is more difficult than finding a friend who’s willing to help you move.

After the Jump: A video of Cristiane eating a scorpion in Thailand, just in case you were beginning to doubt how hardcore this chick is.

Cyborg has not competed in mixed martial arts competition since capturing the Invicta featherweight crown via a third round TKO of Marloes Coenen at Invicta 6, but you tell me, Nation: Is this the beginning of the end of The Rousey Era? Will bantamweight Cyborg actually kill some poor lady in the ring as expected? And finally, what in heaven and earth is a “Beez Back” and/or a “Mr. Gums Doer”?
