Bellator women’s featherweight champion Julia Budd is seemingly quite excited by the fact that the former UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg has been released by the UFC and is now a free agent. In a recent interview, Budd revealed that she wants Cyborg to sign for Bellator MMA.
Budd told MMA Fighting that she really wants Cyborg to come to Bellator MMA because Bellator has the best women’s featherweight division with all the leading women’s featherweights. Thus, Cyborg will surely get plenty of good and exciting match-ups. Here’s what she had to say:
It didn’t surprise me at all, I kind of had a feeling, especially the way things have been going in the news and everything and some of the videos she put up of Dana and the things she’s been saying. I wasn’t surprised that they released her.
The best 145-pounders in the world are here, it makes sense if she comes over to Bellator. I hope she signs with Bellator but we’ll see what she decides to do. I don’t know what her career plans are right now. I think that Dana saying ‘easy fights’, he’s not even paying attention to the girls in Bellator, cause we are the best 145ers in the world and we’ve got the strongest 145-pound division. I don’t think there’s easy fights for her in Bellator. I don’t really get that comment but whatever.
