Bellator MMA women’s featherweight champion, and former UFC women’s featherweight champion, Cris Cyborg is planning a move to boxing.
If her plans come to fruition, arguably one of the world’s best female mixed martial artists in history, will make her boxing debut in her native country of Brazil in September.
“…Think it’s time to add a boxing belt to the collection!

Speaking to James Lynch during the latest episode of The Catch Up, the Bellator MMA champion further discussed her plans.
“My team has been talking to people, the promoters about doing an event in Brazil,” Cyborg said. “September 25, I’m very excited because it’s going to be my city. It’s gonna be my first boxing fight. I believe it’s going to be special. Nothing close yet but if it happen for sure, it’s going to be very special for me. My hometown, the last time I was back to there was UFC 198.”
The once most feared woman in MMA continued to discuss the possibility of making her boxing debut in Brazil.
“So we’re going to be the same arena,” Cyborg stated. “They put 50,000 people there watching UFC 198… If it happens, gonna be great. Very blessed back to my first boxing fight in my city. People don’t know, James, I didn’t start in mixed martial arts first. I start boxing first.”
