The baddest woman on the planet, Cris "Cyborg" Justino is anxious to continue fighting but claims she hasn't been given any fight options despite the fact that she's been cleared by both her doctor and USADA.

"Two weeks [ago] my manager called Sean Shelby about my next fight but no news," she wrote on her official Twitter account. "UFC if you don't want to fight me, release me!"

Cyborg hasn't fought since Septemeber 2016 when she defeated Lina Lansberg at UFC Fight Night 95 via a second round TKO. Because of this bout, and the drastic weight cut she went through to get there, she was hospitalized and forced to turn down a title fight she badly wanted to take. She was later flagged by and put on a temporary suspension, but was ultimately cleared of all wrong-doing and reinstated.

Now she's eager to fight. She's called for a bout with the current featherweight champion, Germaine de Randamie, but has also said she'd like to fight anyone — even if a belt isn't involved. has previously stated that she would like to undergo hand surgery before facing Cyborg.

Justino has not been beaten in more than 10 years and is considered to be the most dangerous female fighter in MMA history.
