After successfully defending her featherweight crown for a third
time earlier this month, Cristiane
Justino made a distinctly UFC 222-themed donation to the
homeless in downtown Los Angeles.
“Cyborg” purchased 222 cheeseburgers from In-N-Out Burger and
passed them out to those living in the Skid Row area of L.A.
“I don’t make the video to show off,” Justino said. “I just want to
inspire people to do the same thing. If you do a little bit, you’re
going to make people really happy.”
And indeed, there were plenty of happy recipients as the reigning
featherweight queen walked from shelter to shelter to hand out the
“I watch her fights. Yes, you’re a maniac,” said one man. “I
wouldn’t fight you. You’d kick my ass, I already know. Trust me,
and I can fight.”
Justino defeated Yana
Kunitskaya via first-round technical knockout at the T-Mobile
Arena in Las Vegas on March 3 to improve to 20-1 with one no
contest in her MMA career. She has been linked to a superfight
against bantamweight champion Amanda
Nunes , but Nunes is scheduled to defend her belt against
Pennington at UFC 224 on May 12.
