Pam Sorenson hopes long-desired Cris Cyborg fight comes to fruition in 2022
UNCASVILLE, Conn. – After finalizing with Bellator, Pam Sorenson is anticipating the chance to eliminate among the most accomplished female fighters in the sport.
Sorenson (8-3 Mixed Martial Arts, 0-0 BMMA) satisfies Roberta Samad (5-1 Mixed Martial Arts, 0-1 BMMA) on Friday at Bellator 264, and the previous Invicta FC featherweight champ aspires to start her title project and lastly deal with ruling Bellator champ Cris Cyborg.
“They have all the fighters that I want to fight here,” Sorenson informed Mixed Martial Arts Addict. “The other promotions, their featherweight divisions, they don’t even compare. This is definitely the place to be as a featherweight.”
She continued, “She (Cyborg) has stated that she wants to fight me, and I have wanted to fight her for quite a while, but we’ve never been in the same promotion at the same time, and that’s why on Twitter when I got signed, I was finally like, ‘Cyborg, I’m home’, and we’ll see. Hopefully that matchup happens sometime next year.”
Bellator 264 happens Friday at Mohegan Sun Arena. The primary card airs on Showtime after prelims on Mixed Martial Arts Addict.
