Canada’s Charmaine Tweet fights Cris ‘Cyborg’ in the Invicta FC 11 Main Event on Feb. 27

Canada’s rising female athlete Charmaine Tweet has the ultimate test ahead of her as she is scheduled to battle one of MMA’s all time dominant fighters, Cris ‘Cyborg’.

Invicta FC announced the featherweight headliner on Tuesday. The eight-bout card takes place at Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Feb. 27 and streams in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass. UFC 184, which includes the Rousey-Zingano co-main event, will be held at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 28.

Cyborg was originally supposed to make her bantamweight debut in December but an injury forced her out of Invicta FC 10.  “Cyborg” has not lost since her professional debut in 2005, with a no-contest for a failed drug test following her 16-second stoppage of Hiroko Yamanaka at Strikeforce “Melendez vs. Masvidal” the only blemish on her record since then. The Brazilian-native holds recent wins over Fiona Muxlow and Marloes Coenen under the Invicta FC banner.  Cyborg did not compete at all in 2014.

Tweet (6-4) is currently riding a two-fight win streak.  The 37 year old Canadian last appeared at Invicta FC 8 where she defeated Veronica Rothenhausler via first-round TKO, and has been looking impressive as of late.

A win over Cyborg will mean Charmaine Tweet will bring home a major championship title.
