Cris “Cyborg” Justino wants the chance to compete in her native country of Brazil.
But Justino, the current Invicta FC featherweight champion, doesn’t want to do it for Invicta FC or any other regional promotion.
She wants to fight inside the Octagon and at UFC 198.
Justino began an online push to fight at the May pay-per-view from Curitiba, Brazil recently, asking fans to help her out.
It has been almost 10 years since I last fought in my home country of Brazil,” she wrote. “I am very lucky that over the last decade my Brazilian Fans have continued to support me and my career as I chased my dreams as a World Champion, while living and competing in America.
“This May the UFC will be promoting an event in my hometown of Curitiba Brazil, a city very rich in fight history. It would be an honor to return back to the city I was born in, and to step inside of the Octagon with an opportunity to prove myself as one of the best female fighters in the sport.
