Chris Cyborg, long known as the greatest women fighter ever might play her last match at UFC 240. The game between Chris Cyborg and Felicia Spencer is a co-feature to Saturday’s main event Max Holloway vs. Edgar.
UFC 240 takes place at Roger Place, Edmonton, Atlanta on Saturday, July 27. Chris Cyborg will face her lesser-known opponent Felicia Spencer who is undefeated in 7 matches into her senior career.
Spencer up to something special
Everyone is looking ahead of another Chris Cyborg win at UFC 240. The odds are heavily stacked with the legend. It’s 6-1 with Cyborg favorite. This also might be Cyborg’s last UFC match as her contract ends after this.
So everyone @ufc understands. If your job is to promote a fighter, build a relationship towards signing a new long term contract, and promote the biggest WMMA fight ever these comments by @danawhite aren’t getting us closer to that outcome. pic.twitter.com/5q8BBPOcwJ

She may or may not renew it as she has talked about checking out other pastures after this. Fans who expect her to come back are though are expecting Cyborg to fight a rematch with bantamweight and featherweight champion Amanda Nunes.
That said, people are merely ignoring Spencer, and it seems she likes it.
There have been a lot of people talking about her next fight as if this fight wasn’t happening,
So whatever plans are being made, I’m here to spoil that party.
Chris Cyborg vs. Spencer of UFC 240 Countdown show
Spencer is an Invicta featherweight champion. She debuted on UFC in May defeating Megan Anderson by submission. She thinks she’s underestimated right now because of her lower experience.
This is the second Legend vs Young talent fight in two weeks. Leon Edwards defeated Favourite dos Anjos last Saturday.
Spencer’s mat experience though is second to none, and she believes she can defeat the best on the biggest stage.
I’ve had the match time. My cage time doesn’t match a lot of the other competitors in the UFC, but my mat time is there or beyond a lot of the roster. I feel very confident.
