Cris Cyborg Signs An Agreement To Fight Larissa Pacheco

Cris Cyborg, the Bellator Women’s Featherweight Champion, has signed an agreement to fight Larissa Pacheco.

Cyborg’s last MMA fight was a win over Cat Zingano at Bellator 300. Since then, she has struggled to get a fight. Cyborg and Pacheco were very critical of the PFL for not having a date lined up following the acquisition of Bellator. However, PFL Chairman Donn Davis teased a summer card in Saudi Arabia, which would be headlined by Francis Ngannou vs. Renan Ferreira.

On that same card, Cyborg vs. Pacheco would be a co-main event. Davis expected the date to be from July to September. While Cyborg has confirmed her agreement, she did not announce the date or the card. To remain active, she will box on June 15 in London against Aria Wild. Her last boxing fight was a win against Kelsey Wickstrum in January. The Pacheco fight will take place after. 

“I just signed the agreement for my next fight [against Pacheco]…I cannot say the date, but I’m telling you guys I just signed the agreement,” Cyborg said
