Cyborg Gender:

Her physical prominence and apparent outlooks confuse the onlookers if she is female or transgender. In the first place, it is better to mention that Cyborg was married to Evangelista Santos which proves that she is a heterosexual woman. Heterosexual women are sexually or romantically attracted to men. While heterosexual men are sexually or romantically attracted to women. In one word they are called “straight”. Still, the question arises why she looks like a man. The answer begins with training. A complete woman might look like a male bodybuilder. Firstly because she built her body like a male fighter with enough mass and muscle that is needed to fight with.

Is Cyborg Transgender?

Since Cyborg is a public figure and a most accomplished Female MMA fighter, she has to undergo some pathological tests. The diagnoses found the presence of hormone-related testosterone that was being produced naturally from her body. 

Testosterone plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues such as the testes and prostate. Testosterone is the primary sex hormone and anabolic steroid in any male. It also contributes to secondary sexual characteristics such as bone mass and increased muscle, and the growth of body hair. Sometimes incongruously in the female body. Honestly speaking, extremely high levels of testosterone were found in the body of Cris Cyborg. But fortunately, the hormone couldn’t produce full or natural testicles. These are undescended testicles, abortive ones, that favored her to remain a female MMA fighter. An undescended testicle is a testicle that hasn’t moved into its proper position in the bag of skin hanging below the penis. Usually, just one testicle is affected, but about 10 percent of the time both testicles dysfunctionally are undescended. However, in the case of Cyborg, she has internal but born testicles. But it does not matter, those testes alone are not capable of reproduction as a male partner. So her claim as a female fighter remains valid.


Attraction to the opposite sex is a normal relationship. But there is same-sex body chemistry that exists. The matters matter both by brain and mind. Western societies have long ago accepted the relationship between same-sex. But unfortunately, transgender people still have been suffering from Identity crises, especially in developing countries. Cris Cyborg overcomes the social stigma with the overwhelming honor of title-winning, remaining an incarnation of power.
