Cris Cyborg might just be the most dangerous female fighter on the planet. A 2x IBJJF World Champion competing in the Kimono, Cyborg has also captured a Bronze medal competing Nogi for the prestigious ADCC submission Wrestling Tournament. A Chute Boxe Muay Thai Black Belt, Cyborg after going 4-0 in Muay Thai challenged for the Lion Fight World Title which was held by world #1 ranked Muay Thai fighter Jorina Baars. Known to challenge herself, this flashback video of Cris Cyborg competing in a wrestling tournament from Brazil recently surfaced.
In this video Cris Cyborg defeats Olympic wrestler Aline Ferreira in a wrestling match. Aline Ferreira won a silver medal in the 2014 World Championships at the 75kilo division. She has also won Silver medals in the 2011 and 2017 Pan American wrestling championships. Could we have seen Cris Cyborg wrestling in the Olympics if she had wanted to?

If you haven’t started the #CRISCYBORG #FITNESSCHALLENGE yet, you need to join me and Gabi Garcia as we are getting set for your fights! I have teamed up with the creators of BETTER HUMAN APP to create a CYBORG TAKEOVER where I send you my exact workouts for the lead up to the Holly Holm fight. These will come direct to your phone and you can do them along with me!! The app features a ton of other features, including the PHOTO RECOGNITION feature…literally all I do now when I am logging my micro and macros is take a pic of my food. Once I have taken a pic of my food (which I do anyways, lol) the app then classifies the food and tracks how many micro/macro’s I have eaten. This app is game changing and a BIG reason why I am in such great shape ahead of the fight with Holly Holm. If you want the Cyborg Workouts, make sure you use the BHA code: CYBORG at registration!
