MMA news

Bellator MMA is in Inglewood, California tonight for Bellator 238 which features the women’s featherweight title on the line as Julia Budd battles Cris Cyborg in the main event.

Budd (13-2) is looking to defend her belt for the fourth time and extend her winning streak to 12. She won the inaugural featherweight title back at Bellator 174 with a TKO win over Marloes Coenen. The Canadian has not lost since her fourth professional fight back in 2011 where she was submitted by Ronda Rousey. Her other loss came at the hands of Amanda Nunes.

Cyborg (21-2 and one no-contest) is making her promotional debut and looking to become the first person to win a title in Strikeforce, Invicta, UFC, and Bellator. She got back into the win column last time out with a decision win over Felicia Spencer. Before that, she suffered a shocking first-round knockout loss to Amanda Nunes to lose her title.

The co-main event sees Darrion Caldwell battle the undefeated Adam Borics in the quarterfinals of the featherweight grand prix.

Caldwell (14-3) got back into the win column last time out with a decision win over Henry Corrales. Before that, he suffered back-to-back losses to Kyoji Horiguchi in a fight for the vacant RIZIN bantamweight title and followed by losing his Bellator bantamweight title.
