Cris Cyborg weighing in

The UFC announced on Thursday that Cris “Cyborg” Justino is set to headline UFC Fight Night 95 in Brazil on September 24.

Cyborg will meet Lina Lansberg, who will be making her UFC debut. The bout is set for a 140-pound catchweight fight.

Cyborg made her UFC debut at UFC 198 in a 140-pound catchweight bout with Leslie Smith in Brazil and defeated Smith by TKO in the first round.

Lansberg is on a six-fight winning streak and will look to make a statement to the world in her bout with the Invicta featherweight champion.

Also added to the card, former UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao will take on Phillipe Nover in the co-main event of the evening.
