The often tense relationship between Cris Cyborg and UFC President Dana White has finally come to an end. Following a controversial backstage confrontation between the two, White told the press that "We're out of the Cyborg Business."

This means that the 34-year-old Brazilian is now the hottest free agent on the market. Cyborg is a former UFC Women's Featherweight Champion with a 21-2-1 professional record. She was undefeated for roughly thirteen years, prior to her bout with Amanda Nunes this past December. Nunes would end up knocking out the former featherweight queen in the very first round.

However, despite the fact that her unbeaten streak has ended, she remains one of the biggest names in combat sports. Landing a star like Cris Cyborg would heighten the profile of any mixed martial arts promotion in the world. Tough, it is also possible that the former champ steps away from MMA to pursue other endeavors.

Recently, the Brazilian powerhouse has expressed interest in the world of sports entertainment ⁠— aka professional wrestling. So it's quite possible her next bout could take place inside the squared circle.

In truth, there are quite a few options for the former UFC star, both in and out of the cage. Let's explore them a bit further.
