Invicta FC Featherweight Champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino made a successful Octagon debut in front of hometown fans and supporters tonight at UFC 198: “Werdum vs Miocic” in Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil. Justino quickly stopped Leslie “The Peacemaker” Smith in a 140-pound catchweight bout.
Tonight’s UFC debut was a long time coming for Justino, who had been campaigning for a fight in the UFC for more than two years. She towered over Smith, a one-time Invicta FC flyweight title challenger, and battered the Californian with heavy punches en route to a first-round TKO stoppage.
