Ahead of her December bout with Holly Holm, Cris Cyborg announced that she has signed a new fight contract with the UFC.
Cyborg, the defending UFC featherweight champion, will face Holm at UFC 219 from Las Vegas.
“I am excited to be committed to the UFC,” she said. “Dana White has proven himself as the best promoter in the sport and with the recent addition of Mick Maynard as Women’s matchmaker I felt it was time to come to an agreement where we can both work together and be committed in both building the UFC and the Cris Cyborg brands. I want to thank my manager George Prajin of PrimeTime 360 and the UFC’s Hunter Campbell on the excellent job they did working together to get this deal done. I am excited to start this new chapter in my career as a real partner with the UFC and the fights we will promote together.”
