Watch: Cris Cyborg’s Top-5 Most Vicious Knockouts Ahead Of UFC 240

Cris Cyborg will return to the UFC octagon tonight for her first outing since losing in incredibly violent fashion to Amanda Nunes at UFC 232.

There is the sense that we’re going to learn a lot about the Brazilian former champion by the time all is said and done in Edmonton, Canada.

Unbeaten for over a decade and with a reputation as one of the most fearsome fighters the sport has ever known at any weight-class, to see the seemingly indestructible Justino handled with relative ease by the bantamweight champ Nunes was shocking at the time and perhaps even more incredible as the months have gone on.

It’s easy to forget exactly how skilled Cyborg is, though. No one sub-minute defeat can change the fact that she is still very much one of the world’s pound-for-pound best and Felicia Spencer, her opponent tonight, should be very, very afraid of what a wounded Justino with a point to prove will look like.

With that in mind, watch Cris Cyborg’s top-5 career knockouts and remind yourself of exactly how dangerous this woman is.
