In an Instagram post today, former Strikeforce current Invicta featherweight champion Cristiane Justino, a.k.a. Cris Cyborg met with aging Hollywood phenom, possible pancake disposal unit and definite current dancing sensation Steven Seagal. True to form, they duo looked like they were born to raise hell.

Justino noted that she was excited to start her new training camp and that she had more news forthcoming. She has recently looked driven to kill in her Invicta run. Much speculation is expected to follow, and I should note that there has not been a fighter that has hung out with Seagal that hasn't looked pistol whipped down the road. Anderson Silva, Junior dos Santos, Lyoto Machida and Daniel Cormier have suffered the worst losses of their careers after meeting the Aikido master, whom they considered a good man. But all of this begs the question - does he leave these fighters marked for death?

One last thing - a curious coincidence can be found in the actor's IMDB page, which includes a project currently in post-production named Cyborg Nemesis. Seagal is joined by Starship Troopers' Dina Meyer and Sasha Mitchell from famed 90s sitcom Step by Step, as well as Kim Couture.

Justino recently defeated Russian grappler Daria Ibragimova at Invicta FC and left her opponent half past dead. She continues to hold the Invicta featherweight division under siege.
