Cris Cyborg Joins Scott Coker And Bellator For Record Fight Deal!

Former UFC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg is one of the greatest women’s MMA fighters of all time. And she recently signed with Bellator promotion for what is the largest deal in women’s mixed martial arts history.

Cris Cyborg (21-2, 1 NC) won her most recent fight against Felicia Spencer via decision at UFC 240 in July, but prior to that, she lost to Amanda Nunes via KO. However, this was a rare loss for Cyborg not having lost a fight since 2005. She’s still a very dangerous fighter and will try her luck in Bellator with much better incentive… 

Cyborg Tweeted the following after joining Bellator… 

“Heeeey!!!!! #CyborgNation we are now part of the @BellatorMMA family. @Viacom @daznglobal #respect”

President of Bellator MMA was thrilled to sign Cyborg… 

I am proud to announce that @BellatorMMA has signed @CrisCyborg to the biggest contract in women’s MMA history. Welcome to the family.”

Coker made the following statement after signing Cyborg…

“I have worked with countless athletes over my thirty-plus years of promoting combat sports, but there is no one quite like ‘Cyborg’,” Coker said in a statement. “Her ability to excite the crowd from the moment she makes her walk to the cage is special, and having had the pleasure of promoting several of her fights in the past, I am looking forward to the opportunity of promoting her once again.

“‘Cyborg’ is the most dominant female fighter in the history of the sport and she will be a perfect fit here at Bellator, where champion Julia Budd and the other women that make up best female featherweight division in the world have eagerly awaited her arrival.” (via MMAFighting)

This is exciting news for Cris Cyborg and Bellator introducing a legend to their organization, and we’re sure she has a lot left in the tank at 34 years old.
