Cris Cyborg heads into the final fight of her current contract when she faces Felicia Spencer at UFC 240 on Saturday in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. 

UFC president Dana White has been needling her about a rematch against current champ-champ Amanda Nunes, but Cyborg will need to take care of business against Spencer before that can even be a consideration.

For Spencer, the fight with Cyborg represents the biggest opportunity of her career. Spencer has already defeated the likes of Megan Anderson and Pam Sorensen, but Cyborg was long considered the top female fighter on the planet before she lost to Nunes. Can Spencer hand Cyborg back-to-back losses for the first time in her storied career?

Gilbert Melendez and Dominick Cruz break down what Felicia Spencer and Cris Cyborg both need to do in order to win at UFC 240.
