Bellator

The official Bellator MMA rankings were updated following the Bellator 259: “Cyborg vs Smith 2” event, which went down last Fri. night (May 14, 2021) from inside Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.

In the main event of the evening, Cris Cyborg went up 2-0 on Leslie Smith by earning a knockout win over “The Peacemaker” in the closing seconds of the fifth round of their featherweight title fight (see it again here).

In further action, Bellator MMA newcomer Hannah Guy upset Valerie Loureda, dominating her for three rounds on the ground to earn a unanimous decision win, handing “Master” the first loss of her pro MMA career. And that is what really stood out in this week’s rankings, because the loss didn’t do much to affect Loureda’s spot on the list since she still remained at No. 8 while Guy debuted at No. 9.
