After her third round victory on Saturday night at UFC 214, newly crowned UFC Womens Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg will be attending another major title fight, but this time as a spectator.
Late last evening, the Brazilian MMA superstar announced on Twitter that she will be at the MGM Grand in Detroit for the WBC/ IBF Super Middleweight Title fight pitting Claressa Shields against the defending champion Nikki Adler.
