In December it was announced that Cris Cyborg Justino had an anti-doping test flagged. She tested positive for spironolactone, which is prohibited, with a potential one-year suspension. However, Cyborg was by all indications legitimately taking it under the care of an MD, to recover from weight cutting.

Earlier this month her attorney reported that she was applying for a retroactive Therapeutic Use Exemption. Now USADA has announced that the TUE has been granted.

Haters aren't done yet, and neither is Cyborg...can't wait for her to show the UFC a dominant WMMA Champ again! With Nunes and her at the front of their packs, things could get interesting, quick!

Randamie could pose an interesting threat to Cyborg if she comes in with the right game plan. She beat Holm (that's what's stamped in history, regardless of personal opinion) who is always game. The thing Cyborg has going for her is a permanently altered physique and size advantage & power. Now, this ain't Muay Thai but Jorina Baars beat the fucking brakes off of Cyborg. It took me back when I was watching it. I think Cyborg is the 145 champ here soon, although never count out a hungry opponent (i.e. Thrillashaw & Barao 1).

GDR has one helluva nasty counter, and Cyborg is fearless. Wouldn't be surprised to see Chris laid out flat on her back early.

As much as I Hate Cyborg she is going to run through GDR.
