Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino (15-1, 1 NC) won the first ever Strikeforce women’s featherweight championship in Aug. 2009 with this first round finish of then unbeaten Gina Carano (7-1). The beating so devastated Carano, female MMA’s first superstar, that she never fought again and sought out the lights of Hollywood instead. Since Cyborg claimed that Strikeforce 145-pound title from Carano, she’s knocked out seven straight opponents, actually she knocked out eight but her win against Hiroko Yamanaka in Dec. 2011 was overturned to a No Contest after Cyborg popped for stanozolol. Cyborg went on to dominate her division in Invicta FC and will make her long-awaited UFC debut against Leslie Smith at UFC 198 in Curitiba, Brazil on May 14.
