This Saturday, UFC 95 will take place in Brazil. It will be on FS1 at 6pm central time. UFC fans will see Cris Cyborg fight Lina Lansberg in the main event. Cyborg needs to make weight (140 lbs.) by Friday’s weigh in. She needs to cut 20 lbs. to be exact. Her nutritional consultant George Lockhart has decided for her to use birth control to cut the weight. This is one of the first times that the UFC has heard about the method being used. The public was put aware of this by Cyborg posting her training video on YouTube. The UFC is monitoring the situation very closely.
Back to the fight, Cyborg vs Lansberg maybe a good fight. Lansberg will be making her UFC debut on Saturday. She is a Muay Thai style fighter and a great striker. She isn’t the greatest wrestler so her take down game isn’t the best. She maybe one of the best strikers that Cyborg has faced in a while. With that being said I don’t know how she will beat Cyborg on Saturday. This fight may end up in an early KO by Cyborg. We all know Cyborg is a beast in striking, take downs, wrestling and kicks.
Other fights on the main card are Renan Barao vs. Philippe Nover, Roy Nelson vs. Antonio Silva, Francisco Trinaldo vs. Paul Felder, Thiago Santos vs. Eric Spicely, and Godofredo Pepey vs. Mike de la Torre.
