With Dana White declaring that the UFC is, “out of the Cyborg business” the question remains: Where does Cyborg end up?

I think she goes to Bellator for sure. It just makes more sense than going somewhere else. Bellator has a big platform that will benefit her, and they’ll benefit from having one of the best fighters available on their roster. Cyborg may have lost to double champion Amanda Nunes, but with the way Nunes is fighting lately, the list of people that happens to is growing and growing.

I have to imagine that Cris Cyborg ends up in Bellator. She has the history with Scott Coker and Bellator actually has something of a featherweight division. RIZIN is also an option, but she would be used as more of a freak show attraction and I get the impression that Cyborg actually wants to compete, so I’d imagine we see her in Bellator as soon as she finishes up her shifts at Dunkin’ Donuts.

Bellator. No way She slips through Coker’s fingers. I am not hyped about any potential matchups there at all but I am excited to see what kinda machine Bellator can put behind a legend like Cyborg.
