Cris Cyborg Vacates Invicta FC Featherweight Championship


Cris "Cyborg" Justino is no longer the Invicta FC Featherweight Champion.

The 31-year old fighter vacated her champion, per Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting. Cyborg last defended the title in January 2016 with a first round KO victory over Daria Ibragimova at Invicta FC 15. Since, she's taken two catchweight fights at 140 pounds in the UFC.

Earlier this year, the UFC crowned their first ever Women's Featherweight Champion in Germaine De Randamie. Helwani noted on Twitter that Cyborg is targeting a July fight against de Randamie for that title, presumably during UFC's International Fight Week.

Megan Anderson, who recently won the interim Invicta FC Featherweight Championship, will likely be promoted to undisputed champion in light of the move. Anderson has also expressed her desire to compete in the UFC.
