Cris Cyborg’s last fight was rather disappointing going in as a -250 favourite getting knocked out in less than a minute by two weight division champ Amanda “The Lioness” Nunes. However Cris Cyborg is still regarded as one of the best female fighters on the planet and looks to get back in the win column tonight against Julia Budd.

Julia Budd on the other hand looks virtually unstoppable at the moment coming off a dominant performance against Olga Rubin getting the TKO victory only 2:14 into the first round with brutal body punches and knees. She puts her featherweight belt on the line tonight against Cyborg which will headline this Bellator Card.

Notable Fights On The Card

Darrion Caldwell Vs Adam Borics

This fight will be on the Main Card and will be the Co-Main event. It will also be the Men’s featherweight WGP Quarterfinal where Caldwell looks to hand Borics the first loss of his career.

Aaron Pico Vs Daniel Carey

Pico Vs Carey will be on the Prelims however make no mistake it will be one of the most exciting fights on the card. The 23 year old Aaron Pico comes off a tough loss against Co-Main event star Adam Borics and looks to get back in the win column after a 2 fight losing streak.
