This Saturday, the UFC will touch down in Anaheim, California with UFC 214. This massive card will be anchored by three anticipated title fights. The first of these three title fights will occur in the women’s featherweight division, where destructive Brazilian striker Cris “Cyborg” Justino will battle Tonya Evinger for the vacant throne.

With this anticipated fight now less than a week away, Cyborg has concluded the most physical parts of her camp. On Sunday afternoon, the Brazilian star shared footage of her final sparring session to YouTube, and if this footage is to believed, she’s deadlier than ever. See Cyborg’s final sparring session in the video at the top of this post.

“It’s the end of Cyborg’s camp,” her head boxing coach Jason Parillo says in the video. “Unbelievable last day, last sparring. Sparring’s always the most important aspect of our training and she looked like a world beater tonight. She won every round and it was with a couple of fellas. So it’s pretty impressive as it is. So it looked amazing and we’re ready to win the title.”

Cris Cyborg will enter this UFC 214 title fight with an incredible 17-1 record. Her lone loss occurred in her professional MMA debut, all the way back in 2005. Cyborg has fought twice in the UFC, both times at a catchweight of 140 pounds. In her first fight, she smashed Leslie Smith to a first-round TKO. In her second, she took out Lina Lansberg with second-round punches. Having won the Strikeforce and Invicta women’s featherweight titles, Cyborg has long been eager to add a UFC belt to her already crowded mantle.
