Cris Cyborg Gets Medicals Done During UFC 232 Fight Week (Video)

Cris Cyborg was none too pleased with having to go through medicals during fight week.

This Saturday night (Dec. 29), Cyborg will defend her Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s featherweight gold against 135-pound ruler Amanda Nunes. The title bout will serve as UFC 232’s co-main event. The event was initially set to take place in Las Vegas, but has been moved to Inglewood, California. Needless to say, it has served as an inconvenience for the fighters.
