    Yeah she had 1 fight left on her UFC contract but when her opponent fell through the UFC paid her and dissolved the contract.

    She went 4-3 in her UFC run and in her last 4 fights she is 3-1.In the UFC she beat Jessamyn Duke,Irene Aldana,Rin Nakai,and Amanda Lemos and her losses are to Sarah Kaufman,Cris Cyborg,and Jessica Eye that's not a bad run at all.

    Smith is a female JBG disciple who will please the fans with exciting fights and is member of the Cesar gracie team let's get more of them in bellator.

    LMAO, she was ranting against UFC's fighters pay and is now going to fight for an org, where prelim fighters don't even earn half of that shitty reebok sponsorship money.

    That wont happen, she wont even mention a union for fighters in Bellator or anything and even if she did who would care? If it doesnt involve the UFC its not a story.

    Honestly she's probably happy to just get paid to fight again.

    Flip side of that is a fighter like Smith who has fought in the UFC and has a decent name value can attract sponsors and make more then that Reebok pay.
