In another catchweight affair and his second bout for the promotion, Cisneros was defeated by Ricky Rainey via first-round TKO on October 3, 2014, at Bellator 127. Rainey landed a knee to the head, hurting Cisneros and knocking him down, before subsequent hammer fists prompted a stoppage by the referee.[2]
