LA MIRADA, Calif. – Cristiane Justino put on a show at Thursday’s UFC 214 open workouts.
Justino (17-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC), who fights Tonya Evinger (19-5 MMA, 0-0 UFC) for the vacant UFC women’s featherweight championship at Saturday’s event, delivered one of the more memorable open workouts in recent memory ahead of her title fight.
Instead of delivering the typical session with pad work or light grappling, “Cyborg” put on a capoeira-inspired performance, with berimbaus and all.
UFC 214 takes place at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. Justino vs. Evinger airs on the pay-per-view main card following prelims on FXX and UFC Fight Pass.
Watch the full video of Justino’s UFC 214 open workout above, which gave Yoel Romero’s incredible workout from UFC 213 earlier this month a run for its money.
