Cris Cyborg vs. Arlene Blencowe Bellator Featherweight Title Fight Set for April 23

Since the holding of Bellator 235 and 236 in 2019, the promotion of the mainland state has not gone. The main reason for this was the epidemic of Covid-19, which banned travel, sports and large gatherings not only at Bellator but all over the world.

But now the Bellator MMA is set to return to Hawaii next month and bring with it some blockbuster matchups to the islands. Bellator will once again feature two events on back-to-back dates. In addition to hosting Bellator 278 on April 22, the Neil S. Blessedale Center will see Bellator 279 go down the next night.

At this point we will talk about Bellator 278. In which Cyborg vs. Blencowe Card will be the co-main competition with Sergio Pettis and Raufeon Stots competing for the Baleter Bantamweight title.

Since moving from the UFC to Bellator, the 36-year-old Cyborg is an excellent 4-0 with three knockouts and one submission. That includes beating Julia Bud for the featherweight title in her 2020 campaign.

Cyborg vs Blencowe will face Bellator 249 again in 2020 when Cyborg won the second round to retain the Bellator women's featherweight title.

Overall, Cyborg has a professional career record of 25-2 with no competition. Aside from losing her first Pro Fight in 2005, the Brazilian star's only defeat came in 2018 at UFC 232 at the hands of Amanda Nunes.

Cris Cyborg (25-2), a former strike force, Invicta FC, and UFC featherweight title holder, is poised to gold her fourth defense of the 145-pound Bellator. Her latest victory was defeating Sinead Kavanagh in UFC 271.

Challenging him in Honolulu will be a known enemy, Arlene Blencowe (15-8). After failing to knock out Cyborg in 2020, the 38-year-old Australian won a back-to-back match against Dayana Silva and Pam Sorensen to earn herself a second crack in the belt.

In the main event, as part of the $ 1 million Bantamweight Grand Prix, Sergio Pettis (22-5) will line up against his 135-pound title Raufeon Stots (17-1). Since leaving the UFC for Bellator in 2019, "The Phenom" has been on a winning streak of four fights, including the Champions Trophy vs. Juan Archuleta and the great Kyoji Horiguchi of the Year's successful defense and knockout.

Like Pettis, Stots remained undefeated on the ballot stage. In five contests, "Supa" has extended its MMA winning streak to nine, beating the likes of Magomed Magomedov and Josh Hill. In 18 career fights, the Stots lost one of the top-10 UFC Bantamweights to Merab Dolcevili.

Other fights scheduled for the Bellator 278 card include Kyoji Horiguchi vs. Patchy Mix and Ilima-Lei Macfarlane vs. Justine Kish.

The question arises as to whether Cyborg was able to defeat Blencowe in Blatter 278 again.?
