WATCH: Cris Cyborg beat Olympic wrestler Aline Ferreira
The Olympic games are upon us with the Women’s Freestyle wrestling competition officially kicking off August 17 in Rio.
Yesterday, Invicta FC featherweight champion and UFC competitor, Cris “Cyborg” Justino posted a video on Facebook that shows her wrestling with fellow Brazilian Aline Ferreira. Ferreira is representing Brazil in the Olympic games.
Ferreira competes in the 75kg division, which works out to 165 pounds. In the end, it was the mixed martial artist who earned the win.
UPDATE: Cyborg has since gone on to win the UFC featherweight title. She would eventually lose the belt to bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes.
