Cris Cyborg Betting Preview

Justino will be defending her belt once again and looking for her seventh consecutive win. Her recent win was a unanimous decision over Arlene Blencowe at Bellator 279 in April of last year.

She has compiled 26 victories in her career, which shows 20 knockouts, one submission, and five decisions. 11 of her 26 triumphs have ended in the first round of action, showing that she is a deadly force to start a battle. She also has two defeats in her career, one each by knockout and submission.

She has been successful in every fighting organization she has joined over the years. Notably, she has gone 6-1 in the UFC, 5-0 in Invicta Fighting Championship, and currently 5-0 in Bellator.

She has amassed excellent world rankings as well. She is currently the best female featherweight, fifth best pound for pound, 50th best striker of all time, and the 64th best MMA fighter of all time.

Cat Zingano Betting Preview

Zingano has put together a four-fight win streak as she approaches this battle. Her recent triumph was a unanimous decision against Leah McCourt at Bellator 293 in March of this year.

She has a balanced resume of 14 wins resulting in five knockouts, four submissions, and five decisions. She currently has three first round finishes and has two of her four defeats by decision.

“Alpha” did not look great in her time in the UFC, as she went 3-4 in the promotion. However, she has gone 4-0 in Bellator, but no one is as fierce as Cyborg, so her resume may lack those quality battles.

She is currently ranked as the third best female featherweight in the world. She also is the 28th best pound for pound female fighter in the world.

  • Cat Zingano: +368

  • Cris Cyborg: -714

Cyborg is getting up there in age (38) but has not shown signs of slowing down just yet. Zingano is promising, but she has not faced anyone like Cyborg recently, even though she has a win over Amanda Nunes. There is no chance we are playing Cyborg at -714 however it may not be a bad move to take a shot on Cat. For us, it is dog or pass.  We will pass....
