Who has won (4) World Championships?
Cris Cyborg- StrikeForce, Invicta, UFC, Bellator MMA. While other athlete’s like Ronda Rousey have been able to capture two World Championships from two different promoters, no other athlete like Cris Cyborg has been able to compete for 4 different promoters, 4 different matchmakers, 4 different set’s of contenders and been world champion. Cyborg will look to defend her MMA Grand Slam World Championship when she next steps into the cage with Bellator MMA. Will we eventually see a rematch between Cris Cyborg and Amanda Nunes? Nunes who competed alongside Cyborg in the Strikeforce and Invicta promotions never got an opportunity to compete for those world championships losing to contenders as she was improving her overall performances–Cyborg who rebounded from her shocking 1 minute upset defeat to Amanda Nunes by landing more strikes in a 3 round bout against Felicia Spencer than Nunes did during the course of her recent 5 round matchup with the Canadian Invicta FC Champion–following that record setting performance Cyborg defeated 8 year undefeated reigning world champion Julia Budd to win her Grand Slam Championship, and potentially setting up a Champion Vs Champion Bellator Vs UFC cross promotional event.
