Cris Cyborg set to follow in Conor McGregor’s footsteps, granted boxing license

UFC superstar Cris Cyborg recently applied for a boxing license and on Wednesday was successfully granted it by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC).

According to MMA Fighting, the UFC featherweight champion intends to box in the 154-pound junior middleweight division. She was also said to have been granted a federal boxing ID by the commission.

Cyborg (18-1, 1 NC) won the UFC title by defeating Tonya Evinger via third-round TKO at UFC 214 this past July. The Brazilian has not lost an MMA fight since her professional debut back in 2005.

In the leadup to her boxing debut, Cyborg has been training with two-time boxing Olympic gold medalist Claressa Shields.
