An upcoming documentary shows how that weight cut went and let’s just say it was not fun. If you don’t believe me, check out the video below (weight cut begins @ 0:23):
Video: Cyborg’s Weight Cut For UFC 198 Looked Like The Opposite Of Fun
Cris Cyborg is a beast (no, really. They tested her DNA and she comes back as part Cyclops) that most women in MMA want no part of (I am guessing a large part of the men would avoid her too). She has been the most dominant force in the business for a long time now (when I say dominant, I mean she has been knocking girls heads off) but she does not fight in a weight class the UFC carries. That has limited her exposure to the casual fight fan and blocked super fights with the top girls in the sport. She has been adamant a weight cut to 135 would pose serious health problems but has recently fought at 140.
