One of the most feared fighters in the world is finally making her way to the Octagon, as Invicta FC featherweight champion Cris “Cyborg” Justino faces Leslie Smith at UFC 198 on May 14.
“I think I’m very thankful for the opportunity right now,” Justino said at the UFC 198 pre-fight press conference. “(Leslie Smith) chose the fight, she accepted to fight me. I think a lot of them would not do the same. I think (it’s great) to have that opportunity to fight her.”
“After this fight, I want to fight Ronda (Rousey), I want to fight Holly (Holm), I want to fight Miesha (Tate), but I’ll talk to the boss Dana White and Giovani (Decker) to give me that opportunity,” Justino said. “I hope they can take it, to fight at this weight — not just talk about it but actually accept it.”
