Thursday night at the Bellator 249, Cris Cyborg made his first defense of the featherweight title and now he wants more. Then Scott coker, president of the company, commented that they are in talks with Eddie Hearn, promoter of Matchroom Sport, to cross it with Katie Taylor. The latter is a boxing champion and could put up a great battle for the renowned ex-UFC fighter.
Being so, Coker explained to the press that the talks had started long ago and will resume now that Cris Cyborg (23-2 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) was able to defend his title in Bellator. In this way, of course, it will not be long to see her in action again, after what was a great night just a few days ago for her. Now, it only remains to wait to know the exact date.
‘There is a dialogue between Eddie Hern and me. I told him I would hit him after the show ended and we’ll keep talking. Once again, it will be Cris who sees what he wants to do. I know she’s like she’s up to usBellator), but it really is up to her and her management to see which way they want to go. He can really do what he wants, so we are waiting to close his next fight, “said the president.
Flattering his fighter Scott He said, ‘For me, the warning will be this, and this could be a deciding factor on some level, but a part of me feels like this: When I saw McGregor’s fight against Mayweather, I felt that McGregor is not a boxer, he is a MMA fighter. Do you box? Yes. But is he on a level with Mayweather? No. For me that fight worked out the way it did, but Mayweather should have fought Conor in MMA as part of the reciprocity. “
«We will have to solve it and it depends on what Cyborg want to do. If Eddie Hern wants to see who the best female fighting star in capacity is, then he should think about it. We know that Cris can do whatever he wants and he really lives up to the best in the world, whatever the sport. We do not doubt her capabilities and we want to see her in action again very soon if possible, “he concluded. Scott coker, President of Bellator.
