Cyborg To Remain At Featherweight For Next Fight
Former Strikeforce featherweight champion Cristiane Justino has canceled her drop to the bantamweight division, instead opting to remain at 145 pounds when she returns to the cage this February. "Cyborg," who is currently rehabbing an ankle injury, will instead focus on defending her Invicta FC title.

Anybody who has seen Cristiane Justino fight live or on television knows one thing: from the moment the referee gives the green light, "Cyborg" is a full-throttle fighter who never lets off the gas.
Apparently she can't even take her foot off the pedal even when it comes to an injury. She was set to make her bantamweight debut at Invicta FC 10, but tore up her left ankle in training. Even knowing that she wouldn't be able to take the fight in December, Justino couldn't fight her urge to train.
