Long-awaited title shot finally on tap for "Cyborg" at UFC 214

Justino is a force of nature inside the cage - the type of devastating finisher that fans flock to see, regardless of whom she's facing.

Whether it's talking smack about a pound-for-pound behemoth, talking smack about other promoters or talking smack about fans of the sport, Dana White's penchant for smack-talking can sometimes make you wonder how he's the president of a sports organisation.

While Holm and Nunes reestablish themselves and Shevchenko tries to win a title, Cyborg will carry the torch for women's MMA if she wins Saturday night, even though she's reluctant to be viewed that way.

After finally joining the UFC past year and picking up two wins by knockout in 140-pound catchweight fights, Cyborg finally gets her shot at UFC gold this Saturday at UFC 214 in Anaheim.

However, the Caracas metro worked normally, albeit transporting less passengers that it normally does. Borges, the national assembly leader, said it would mark a new juncture for the opposition.

"It's been great to take a step back and realize how much this sport means to me and how much this position means to me", Jones said. "Saturday night is going to be my day". "It'll be violent. It'll be Cyborg".

Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino is preparing to face Tonya Evinger for the vacant UFC Women's Featherweight Title at UFC 214.

Five months after its inauspicious and controversial debut at UFC 209, the women's featherweight division is poised to take its mulligan this weekend at UFC 214 in Anaheim as the women who always should have been the focal point of the division finally get the chance to fight for UFC gold.

The native Brazilian has been the primary focus for most of the nights when she's stepped into a cage, and she's not exactly flying under the radar by being the co-main event for one of the most prominent MMA cards ever. She was then crowned as the victor of Cyborg's fans contest, and she will be participating in the fight. Where else could she work her wrestling with Huntington Beach's Tito Ortiz, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with the legendary Cobrinha, and then still get all of her striking and MMA needs at the immaculate RVCA gym in Costa Mesa? For her first two bouts in the promotion, she didn't even compete at her preferred weight class. Every day I train happy, and my team is happy with me.

The forward has one year left to run on his current contract with Arsenal and is yet to commit his future to the club by signing a new deal.

"I want to make a difference", she continues.

Cyborg is now undefeated under the UFC banner, having defeated Leslie Smith and Lina Lansberg.

Of the top 10 contenders featured on MMA Rising's Unified Women's Mixed Martial Arts Rankings, only three have ever been tied to a fight inside the UFC at 145 pounds: Cyborg (No. 1), Germaine de Randamie (3) and Anderson (4). "I think she shouldn't have fought at 145 [pounds]". Potential fights with Rousey or anyone else in the UFC's bantamweight division never materialized because Cyborg said she couldn't make the 135-pound weight limit.

This Saturday, the UFC will touch down in sun-soaked Anaheim, California with UFC 214.
