QUESTION: Cris “Cyborg” Justino has been in the headlines over the last few weeks due issues with the new UFC Women’s Featherweight Title being introduced and today over being flagged for a USADA violation. Cyborg has been the obvious choice of centrepiece attraction for a possible Featherweight Division, but even before the USADA flagging, was excluded from the inaugural Featherweight Title fight. This breaks her streak of being the first Featherweight Champion in her respective organizatkion, which goes back to her time in Strikeforce and Invicta FC. Which two fighters did she beat to become the inaugural Strikeforce Champion and Invicta Featherweight Champion respectively?


(a) Marloes Coenen

(b) Jan Finney

(c) Gina Carano

(d) Charmaine Tweet

ANSWERS: The correct answers are not (b) and (d) and therefore are (a) and (c).
