Cris Cyborg vs. Cat Zingano Bellator 300 Fight Most Watched Female Fight in Brazil Since 2018

 Cris Cyborg made a triumphant return at Bellator 300 in San Diego after more than a year and a half out of the cage competing as an undefeated professional boxer. Considered the only Grand Slam Champion in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts with Championship Belts for Bellator MMA, UFC, Invicta FC, and Strikeforce on her resume, Cyborg made quick work of her mandatory challenger Cat Zingano.

Displaying her takedown defense, Cyborg successfully defended all 5 takedowns attempted by Cat Zingano, a former All American Collegiate Wrestler and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Brown Belt before eventually forcing ref Frank Trigg to stop the fight at 4:01 of the first round. The performance for Cyborg was near perfect leaving many to believe she is still improving as she won her 16th World Championship Fight in the sport of MMA.

Bellator 300 was broadcasted throughout Brazil with Globo media partner Combate Television offering supplementary programing to promote the event. With a rating of 9.1 and a 70+ percent share of the market Bellator 300 peaked during the Cris Cyborg Vs Cat Zingano superfight, making it the most watched female fight in the country of Brazil since 2018, and the most viewed female fight by Bellator MMA ever.

Combate which is a pay-TV channel previously was the broadcast partner of the UFC and offers 24 hour combat sports programming and broadcasts domestic and international events such as; Jungle Fight, Bellator MMA, and the Professional Fighter’s League and is considered the top destination for fight fans in Brazil and Latin America.

For Cyborg no immediate plans were announced following her victory. After a professional boxing fight in Brazil that drew over 10,000 in live attendance fans are hopeful the longtime champion can bring an MMA event to Brazil. Immediately following her fight Bellator #1 Contender Leah McCourt was brought into the cage, while Cyborg has the ability to box professionally, and a rumored bout against PFL fighter Kayla Harrison are also possibilities for the 16X World Champion Cris Cyborg.

Fight Zone Opens Inaugural Performance Centre at Suntec City

Fight Zone, a born-in-Singapore fitness brand today announced the opening of its first franchised outlet at Suntec City. Located in the heart of Singapore’s business district, the outlet will also be the first among its outlets to focus on physical transformation of clients and muaythai, moving away from just providing high-intensity training.
The Fight Zone Performance Centre will be the first of six franchised Fight Zone fitness centres which will open all around Singapore in 2023 as the brand aggressively expands its presence locally.

Apart from personal training with authentic muaythai, there will also be specialised kettlebell classes and Suples Bulgarian Bag strength and conditioning classes with the sole aim of helping members undergo their fitness and transformation programmes.

Said Sasidharan Unnithan, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Fight Zone, “We have come a long way since opening the first Fight Zone outlet five years ago. While the pandemic set our plans back for a while, we are now back on track to continue growing Fight Zone as a brand which helps people transform their lives.”

“While the last two years have been somewhat difficult for the fitness industry brought about by the unpredictable nature of the pandemic, we are proud to have been able to come out of it successfully and are now poised for growth. Our next step for Fight Zone would be to take the brand regional.”

Added Hsien Naidu, CEO of Top Franchise Asia, “Fight Zone is a growing brand which shows a great deal of potential not just in Singapore, but in the region. With citizens of the region experiencing increased standards of living and better quality of life, it is inevitable that many will start investing in fitness as a means of improving their mental and physical wellbeing.”

Fight Zone opened its first outlet in Suntec City in 2017 and since then, have added two more outlets at Velocity at Novena and AMK Hub at Ang Mo Kio. The newly opened Fight Zone Performance Centre with its muaythai focus will also help develop the popularity of muaythai as a sport.

Said President of the Singapore Muaythai Federation Clement Ong, “With more Fight Zone outlets, this will provide more venues for the learning, development and promotion of Muaythai as a sport.”

Members of the public can sign up as members of the all-new Fight Zone Performance Centre here ( ). Potential business owners looking to start their own Fight Zone franchise outlets can connect with the team here ( ).
