‘Cyborg’ Passes Random NSAC Test Prior to Title Fight

As far as 2014 goes, so far so good for Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino.

A week before her title bout for Lion Fight, Justino has passed a random drug test requested by Nevada’s boxing commission, MMA Junkie is reporting.

“Cyborg,” the current Invicta featherweight champ, was screened for performance-enhancers and diuretics, Nevada State Athletic Commission chairman Francisco Aguilar confirmed.

According to the report, on Feb. 25, the commission informed the fighter through Lion Fight’s promoter that she was required to report to a testing facility the next morning by 10 a.m. in her adopted hometown of San Diego. She complied, and the test results were today confirmed.

Justino was suspended for a steroid in late 2011.

Justino (12-1) meets Jorina Baars for the Lion Fight featherweight title in the co-headliner of Lion Fights 14, which takes place March 28 at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The night’s main card airs live on AXS TV.

Justino is expected to defend her Invicta FC featherweight belt in June. Soon after she said she will drop to bantamweight for a couple of fights and hopes take on UFC champ Ronda Rousey.
