Social media is part of life in the fight game for most fighters. Many of them turn to Instagram to keep their fans and followers informed and entertained since (for now) its reputation is less vitriolic than some of its contemporaries.
Ahead of her title fight against challenger Arlene Blencowe (13-7 MMA, 6-3 BMMA), check out some of the most popular Instagram posts from women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg (22-2 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) over the past year.
Cyborg and Blencowe headline Bellator 249, which takes place Thursday at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. The main card airs on CBS Sports Network following prelims on MMA Junkie.
