Bellator MMA has added a huge title fight to Bellator 271. Featherweight queen and Grand Slam Champion Cris Cyborg defends her title for a third time when she takes on Sinead Kavanagh live in Hollywood, Florida, on November 12. Cris Cyborg and Bellator MMA confirmed the matchup earlier today per their social media.

Cyborg vs Kavanagh

The last time we saw the Champion Cris Cyborg (24-2-0, 1 NC) was back in May at Bellator 259, where Cyborg defeated Leslie Smith via ground and pound in the 5th round.

Sinead Kavanagh (7-4-0), who fights under the watchful eye of head coach John Kavanagh at SBG Ireland, is hopeful she can make it three consecutive wins on the bounce at Bellator 271. Kavanagh’s last outing in the Bellator sphere occurred in October 2020 where she defeated Katharina Lehner via decision.

Bellator 271 takes place at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida, and will be broadcasted on Showtime.
