In classic Cris Cyborg fashion, the former UFC, Strikeforce, and Invicta FC featherweight champ finished Julia Budd in the fourth round of Bellator 238’s main event to become the new Bellator 145 lbs queen, after a flurry of strikes early into the championship rounds. On Twitter, pro fighters enjoyed the bout.
