    Julia Budd just went 4 rounds with Cyborg. I think you're underplaying her a bit. She's not a can.

    it was eye catching for sure

    I think its just Coker giving a champ due respect ((on paper)) Im sure at the end of the day Cyborg walked away with more money than Budd

    I dont know if shes Usada approved, but shed be top 2 or 3 in the UFCs featherweight division. I think Bellator just has so many low tier fighters that it's necessary for them to keep their top talent at all costs.

    Plus, it certainly creates some appeal for top talent to come over from other orgs.

    When you’re a promotions big time champ you need some money to not sell out for the UFC and collect money from advertisement and sponsor money

    Shes came into the fight as a champ with 3 defenses. It's no wonder Cyborg left the UFC.

    Bellator pays above average fighters a ton of money

    To be fair, anyone in the UFC women's featherweight division is in the top 2 or 3. Are there even 3 people in it?
