Cyborg returns at UFC Brasilia; compares weight situation to Conor McGregor


Cris Cyborg Justino returns to action at 140 pounds when she takes Lina Lansberg on September 24th as the headling fight at UFC Brasilia
Swedish featherweight Lina the “Elbow Princess” Lansberg has won 6 straight fights, 2 of them from TKOs via punches and elbows.
Cyborg says: 171.6 pounds today, 26.6 pounds over the featherweight division of 145 pounds. I will drop the weight over the next 8 weeks with strict diet and exercise, then I will dehydrate my body the last 24 hours to make the remaining weight. This is a hard process and very challenging. Conor Mcgregor is UFC champion of the same division as me, however instead of going down in weight for super-fights, he is going up in weight from 145 to fight at 170. I want to make the biggest fights for my fans, whether that is 140 or 145. Maybe one day I’ll be asked to fight at 170!
