Cris “Cyborg” Justino (pictured) entered Saturday’s scrap against Lina Lansberg as a whopping 14-1 odds-on favorite. Justino did nothing to prove the Gambling Gods wrong by dusting the overmatched Swede.
Although Justino didn’t finish Lansberg in the opening round, as many expected given the lopsided wagering lines, she had no problem doing anything and everything she wanted against Lansberg. At one point in the second round when Lansberg reversed position against the cage, the Brazilian merely smiled as if she was play fighting with a child.
When it was all said and done, Justino walked away with an easy second round TKO finish. Lansberg, meanwhile, will be leaving Brazil with hurt feelings and a severely swollen left eye. She should thank the heavens it wasn’t worse.
Perhaps the most disappointing thing after Justino’s win was that she didn’t call out anyone, primarily former UFC bantamweight queen Ronda Rousey, who has been in hiding since getting dominated by Holly Holm for her belt last November.
UFC Fight Night 95 took place inside Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil.
