Cris Cyborg made her MMA debut in 2005, and lost via submission (kneebar). Maybe that turned her off submissions, because although she earned a brown belt in jiu-jitsu from Andre Galvao, for the next 15 years, across 23 fights with only one more loss, she never won via sub. Until Thursday night in the main event of Bellator 249, when she successfully defended her featherweight belt vs. Arlene Blencowe via rear naked choke.

I will always watch a Cyborg fight. High volume strikes, violence guaranteed and now we can expect submissions. She alsi seems like a nice genuine person.

I've met her a couple of times. Incredibly kind and humble person.

Yah! I was supposed to call a fight with her, but my broadcast partner was so happy, and the seating was tight, so I defered to him :-)
