One of the most dangerous women in the world returned to the mixed martial arts cage for the first time since 2011 after serving a suspension for a positive performance enhancing drug test. Despite the lengthy layoff for Cyborg, she returned just as violent as ever and delivered some devastating punishment to her opponent Fiona Muxlow early and often in their bout on the main card of Invicta FC 5.
Cyborg completely mauled Muxlow and bloodied up her face early. The power shots continued to land throughout the first frame over and over again until referee Big John McCarthy had finally seen enough and called an end to the fight. The bout was never in question after a punch in the opening seconds dropped Muxlow and she was never able to return.
Cyborg was credited with the first-round TKO victory at the 3:46 mark.
With the win, Cyborg guarantees herself a title fight against Marloes Coenen at Invicta FC 6 later this summer.
