In an announcement that was tipped off last week in a YouTube Q&A, former UFC, Invicta, and Strikeforce star Cris Cyborg signed a long-term deal with Bellator MMA.
Initially announced by Bellator President Scott Coker on social media, Cyborg has signed to what is claimed to be the biggest contract in Women’s MMA history.

No word on how long or how much the former UFC featherweight champion is signed for but confirmed the multi-year and multi-fight deal places her in the featherweight division, joining current champion Julia Budd, Olga Rubin, and former UFC signee Leslie Smith.
In the video shared by Coker, Cyborg stated her intentions to become the first female fighter to hold four organizations’ titles in one weight class.
