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 burgers.
“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 Raquel Pennington at UFC 224 on May 12.
