The momentum of Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino hit an unnecessary halt when she was flagged by the United States Anti-Doping Agency at the end of 2016. After just two dominant victories inside the octagon, “Cyborg” had nearly secured a shot at the vacant featherweight championship which will now be decided in a bout between Holly Holm and Germaine De Randamie at “UFC 208”.
White mentioned on the “5ive Rounds” Podcast with Brett Okamoto that not only are things looking good for Cyborg, but she is next in line for a shot at the gold as well! Check out what the boss had to say below:
“The stuff goes down with her and USADA which is actually looking really good now, by the way. Um, apparently the three things that she has is what this medicine is used for. It’s looking really good … We’re in a good place. I truly believe whoever wins this title on Saturday night will fight Cyborg for the title.”
