August 10, 2016 3:10 pm by Chris Taylor

Current Invicta FC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg is one of the best female fighters on the planet.

Cyborg made her octagon debut at UFC 198 this past May where she scored a first-round TKO victory over Leslie Smith in a catchweight bout contested at 140-pounds.

Cris has always stated that it would be impossible for her to make the weight cut down to the UFC’s bantamweight division of 135-pounds and has thus requested that the promotion create a women’s featherweight division.

In the above video previewing her upcoming documentary, Cris is seen crying during her UFC 198 weight cut to 140-pounds.
