“We are excited to have ‘Cyborg’ back with us March 28 for Lion Fight 14 in Las Vegas,” Lion Fight CEO Scott Kent stated. “In her last fight, Cyborg absolutely dominated French muay Thai champion Jennifer Colomb, leaving no question that she is a legitimate two-sport athlete who can win impressively in both MMA and muay Thai.

"She also showed she is an aggressive fighter who has the power and pace to finish fights. I think she won over a lot of new fight fans in our ring, and they can’t wait to see her in action again.”

Lion Fight 14, which airs on AXS TV, takes place March 28 at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.

Santos said she still has one fight remaining on her Invicta FC contract, but it's unclear when she'll be fighting again under that promotion's umbrella.

It had been rumored that Santos would fight Ediane Gomes in the Invicta FC 8 headliner sometime in March, but that fight looks highly unlikely to happen any time in the near future.

With Santos heading to Lion Fight, it's clear plenty of A-list celebs will be on hand in Las Vegas on March 28.

Her debut with the muay thai promotion will absolutely be a hot ticket, so it's to be expected that dozens of celebrities will be in attendance at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino to watch her compete.

Here's a look at three key reasons why Cris "Cyborg" Santos signed with Lion Fight.
