Cris Cyborg also won UFC gold in her first UFC title fight for the vacant women’s featherweight title beating Tonya Evinger in the third round by TKO. Cyborg also made her way on to the pound-for-pound rankings coming in at #13 and will look to climb those ranks as the women’s featherweight division comes evolves.
