Will Cris Cyborg resign with Bellator? 

That’s the question that’s been floating around, and Cyborg, the promotion’s featherweight champion, has addressed it. 

“After this fight, I’m back on MMA training. For sure, I want to do both together… But number one, for me, is MMA,” Cyborg said in an interview with ESPN.  

“Yes, (I’m still a free agent). But I love working with Scott Coker. Let’s see. I believe we’ll be working together (still). I have a nice relationship (with him). He’s not just my boss, we’re partners… He respects me.” 

Cyborg has been training for her second boxing bout for December 10, which will be on the undercard of WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford vs. David Avanesyan. She is fighting Gabrielle Holloway, who also previously fought in Bellator. 

It will be a four-round lightweight bout. She debuted in boxing in September and won. 

On the MMA side, she is 26-2 overall but is 5-0 under the Bellator banner. 

Cyborg joined the MMA promotion after leaving the UFC in 2019. In the UFC. She enjoyed a three-fight reign as champion, but lost the title after encountering Amanda Nunes.  

But she hasn’t lost since then. 

“I have my title and I’m getting ready to defend. I believe the next one is supposed to be Cat Zingano. She really needs to stop running and accept fight,” Cyborg said. 

“Then let’s see… She’s a great match. Everyone knows who she is; big name…. I believe it’s going to be (in the) summer.”
