Cris Cyborg continued her dominance in Bellator. Cyborg all but had her way with Leslie Smith for the majority of their championship main event before winning by TKO at the 4:51 mark of Round 5 to retain her women’s featherweight title. The title fight was a rematch of a 2016 UFC bout in which Cyborg (24-2 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) stopped Smith (12-9-1 MMA, 2-3 BMMA) in the first round. The bout was contested at a 140-pound catchweight, and it marked Cyborg’s debut with the UFC
