Former UFC champion Cris Cyborg still feels as though Dana White is a bully and has clarified that their relationship isn’t in the best place.
“Everybody knows that I don’t have the best relationship with UFC. I don’t have the best relationship with Dana White. He’s bully me around, bully me on the internet. I suffer bullying everywhere because of this. He never said he’s sorry to me about this. He never said he’s sorry to me about this
Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino opened up about her experience with bullying after defeating Felicia Spencer at UFC 240. Cyborg explained that her daughter is also having a hard time hearing how people describe her mother.
“My daughter almost fight in school because of this...I told her, ‘you can not fight a kid, if they want to say anything to you, you have to let it go’... all the kids on the media see the things and they say ‘your mom has a penis.’”
Cyborg’s bout against Spencer was the last fight on her current contract but she has expressed an interest in fighting Amanda Nunes again. In her post-fight interview, Cyborg said to Joe Rogan that she’d let the UFC talk to her manager about the potential bout but she clarified that she was interested.
White, however, doesn’t picture the rematch happening.
“In my honest opinion, Cyborg sees herself in the twilight of her career, and I think she would like some easier fights. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Many fighters have left to move on to easier fights and there’s nothing wrong with that.
“When you get to a certain age and a certain point of her career and you look like Cris tonight, if that was Amanda Nunes, it’s a whole different ballgame. I don’t blame her for that, I’m not criticizing her for that, but these are facts. And the fact is, I will make the fight if she wants to fight Amanda, and Amanda wants that fight.”
White also said, “I know every time I speak, Cyborg thinks I’m speaking negatively about her, which I’m not. I’m just speaking facts.”
The original feud between the two became apparent after Cyborg had tested positive for stanozolol and Ronda Rousey commented on the topic.
"I've said before, I don't care if she's injecting horse semen into her eyeballs, I'll fight her, but that's just my personal decision," Rousey said. "But I can't make a decision for the whole division. I can't say it's the right thing. This girl has been on steroids for so long and [has been] injecting herself for so long that she's not even a woman anymore. She's an 'it.' It's not good for the women's division. It's not good at all.”
Dana declined to punish Rousey over her comments and didn’t feel like the situation was more than typical trash talk. "Ronda called her a [expletive] cheater, she called her an 'it.' [Cyborg] calls Ronda a chicken. Is Ronda a chicken? Huh? Should Ronda be offended by being called a chicken? Grow the [expletive] up, everybody."
White went on to compare her appearance to that of a former male MMA stars, while she was on steroids, saying “I said, when I saw her at the [World MMA Awards], that she looked like Wanderlei Silva in a dress and heels and she did. Did she not? Who wants to dispute that she didn't look like Wanderlei?"
