The Wiseman Report – Despite UFC 198 win, Cyborg currently focused on defending Invicta 145 belt

Invicta FC featherweight champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino (16-1-0), as expected, earned a dominant win at UFC 198 over Leslie Smith (8-7-1).

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.

UFC 190

Florida MMA organization Titan FC announced the signing of Jessica Aguilar as their matchmaker.  Aguilar, 34, is an active UFC strawweight, losing her debut fight via unanimous decision to Claudia Gadelha last August.

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?

According to a story in The Straits Times, new ONE Championship atomweight champion Angela Lee (6-0-0) has signed a lucrative extension deal with the company last week. Lee, 19, defeated Japanese opponent Mei Yamaguchi in a fantastic bout to the become the promotion’s youngest titleholder.

Invicta FC flyweight fighter Roxanne Modaferi (19-12-0) has a new book out called How to be Positive: Mental Training. The book costs $16 USD plus $5 USD for shipping in the USA, while Canadian residents pay $16USD shipping plus applicable taxes for an approximate total of $32 USD.
