After UFC President Dana White reported that he was not going to resign Cris “Cyborg”, many people predicted she would end up with Bellator. On Tuesday the promotion announced that it has signed the former UFC featherweight champ to what Bellator claimed is the “largest contract in womens’ MMA history”.

Bellator President Scott Coker was quoted saying in the official announcement:

“I have worked with countless athletes over my thirty-plus years of promoting combat sports, but there is no one quite like ‘Cyborg’,” Bellator President Scott Coker said. “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 best female featherweight division in the world have eagerly awaited her arrival.”

The 34-year-old “Cyborg” (21-2, 1 no-contest) is coming off a decision win over Felicia Spencer in July, after she lost the UFC’s 145 title to Amanda Nunes last December.
