    Cris Cyborg has ended her free agency.

    The former UFC featherweight champion has inked a deal to join the roster at Bellator MMA where she will team up with her former Strikeforce promoter Scott Coker again.

    The Bellator president made the announcement on Tuesday while stating that she inked the ‘biggest contract in women’s MMA history’.

    “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 the best female featherweight division in the world, have eagerly awaited her arrival.”

    “I’m very excited to announce that I’m partnering with Scott Coker and Viacom and fighting in Bellator,” Cyborg said. “You guys know I have a lot of girls I want to fight at 145 pounds and this means you’re going to have a lot of fights per year and I’m very happy about that!

    this is best case scenario. it still opens her up to being on rizin cards and she should have no trouble with any of the girls in bellator. the only other real choice would have been PFL and they are not trying to get big girl kayla killed

    judging by how she took her loss she just likes to fight and compete...I think she would prefer to be active and fight about 3 or more times a year

    when you get high in the UFC rankings, your career passes you by as you fight once every 6-8 months
