Cristiano Souza Wiki Update Wiki

Cristiano Souza entered the Fight Master: Bellator MMA competition as an undefeated prospect and heavy favorite.  After winning his preliminary bout, Souza selected Randy Couture as his head coach.  Souza was then seeded at #2 out of 16 for the elimination bout, ranked only behind Joe Riggs.  However, he was defeated by Evan Cutts and removed from the competition.

Souza would later enter a Bellator welterweight tournament, but suffered the first professional defeat of his career to Sam Oropeza in the quarterfinal round.
