Cris Cyborg Takes on Olympic Wrestler
UFC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg defeats Olympic wrestler Aline Ferreira in a wrestling match. Aline Ferreira won a silver medal in the 2014 World Championships at the 75-kilogramme division. She has also won Silver medals in the 2011 and 2017 Pan American wrestling championships.
Cyborg will defend her title against Holly Holm at UFC 219. As the former bantamweight champion, Holly Holm looks to move up a division and take on the feared Brazilian champion. And while Cris Cyborg has looked unbeatable over the last decade. She will face a tough challenge in world boxing and former UFC champion Holm.
But judging from what we see in this footage it won’t be on the ground where Cris is lacking. Known for her outstanding striking, she is amongst the most effective and violent fighters in the sport, men or women. And so when she meets Holm in their upcoming fight will no doubt be looking to outstrike the striker. But should things go to the ground, we can now see just how well she can handle that scenario.
