The Wiseman Report – Despite UFC 198 win, Cyborg currently focused on defending Invicta 145 belt
Not a lot of positive in the fight for Smith, but give her credit for taking the fight. Not many one wanted to fight her, but she did.
Cyborg said after the fight that she will go back to Invicta and defend her 145 belt.
By the way, Cyborg is looking for female fighters.
She posted the following on her Facebook page:
Know any ladies looking to fight MMA?

In addition, the company announced the formation of women’s strawweight and flyweight divisions and the signing of Carina Damm (22-10-0). My take? More opportunities for female fighters to develop is always welcome news here at The Wiseman Report. But should an active fighter be a matchmaker?
