In March 2017 Cyborg vacated her Invicta Featherweight title and called out Germaine de Randamie for the belt targeting UFC 214 in Anaheim, California.   The match fell apart since Germaine de Randamie refused to fight Cyborg stating that Cyborg was a proven drug cheater and she was willing to get stripped of the belt for not fighting Cyborg.  De Randamie was stripped of her belt on June 19, 2017 by UFC  and Cyborg was expected to face Megan Anderson to fight for the vacated UFC Women's Featherweight Championship at UFC 214 on July 29 in Anaheim, California.   On June 27, Anderson pulled out of the fight due to personal reasons and was replaced by current Invicta FC Bantamweight Champion Tonya Evinger .  Cyborg won by TKO in the third round to claim her first UFC championship. 
In the episode, Troq , Cyborg was the first one to learn the meaning of the word Val Yor had been calling Starfire, (Troq, which is a slur for literally "nothing"). Because he initially misinterpreted Starfire's explanation that it meant nothing, he went to call her that, which hurt her deeply. But after learning that it literally meant nothing, Cyborg went to comfort her. Being half-robot, Cyborg knows exactly what it is like to be mistreated just for how you look, and completely empathized with her. He then told Robin, who was equally outraged.
