It looks like another UFC champion is hoping to add some pro-boxing bouts to their schedule, as it’s being reported that Cris “Cyborg” Justino has received a boxing license from the California State Athletic Commission. In addition, the report from MMA Fighting states the UFC featherweight champ “intends” to compete in boxing’s 154 pound division.
So, this is clearly interesting news, as Justino’s contract with the UFC is reportedly set to end in October. Since “Cyborg” is a reigning champ, the UFC will have negotiating rights for one year.
The Brazilian star secured the featherweight title at UFC 214 in July, by stopping Tonya Evinger in round three. The 32 year-old Justino currently holds a pro MMA record of 18-1, with 1 no contest.
