BREAKING: Featherweight Free Agent Cris Cyborg Signs Largest Contract In Women’s MMA History
Cris Cyborg just got paid!
On Tuesday, the mixed martial artist star announced she has signed a deal with Bellator and it was called the biggest contract in women’s MMA history.
Bellator president Scott Coker shared the news on his Twitter account with Cyborg talking about her new move in a video.
“My goal is to become the only female fighter to hold four different major titles in the same division,” Cyborg said.
It was just last month when Cyborg was released from her UFC contract. President Dana White seemed pleased with that decision.
“Dealing with her has been a nightmare the entire time she’s been here,” White said, according to MMA Junkie. “It’s been a bad experience dealing with Cyborg since Day 1. We brought in her after she tested positive for steroids and we made her a clean athlete with the best drug testing policy in all of sports the entire time she was here. When she talks about her legacy and her brand, her legacy, and her brand, nothing’s better than knowing she’s a clean athlete after testing positive for steroids and all the negativity that surrounded her about being a dirty athlete. We bring her in here, we do all this stuff and she was just never happy.
“Never happy, complaining about everything. She was a nightmare to deal with, and at the end of the day she knows, I know, Amanda Nunes knows, I tried to make that Nunes fight [happen]. She doesn’t want it. She doesn’t want it. She gets mad when I say I don’t blame her. I don’t blame her! If that was Amanda Nunes last Saturday, I think everyone can agree what would’ve happened in that fight. She’s unhappy, we’re unhappy, she lies and does that thing [the video]. See ya later. Have a nice life.”
