Is this the end of Cris Cyborg Justino in the #UFC?
After UFC 240, Cris Cyborg and UFC President Dana White have been at a crossroads publicly over the former champion’s future.
The main issue has been a rematch between Cyborg and the only person in over a decade to beat her, Amanda Nunes. While Cyborg has publicly declared she wants the fight, White has promoted the idea that the former featherweight champion is ducking Nunes..
“I think a lot of things have to fix and change for [me] to have more fights in UFC,” Cyborg said to Ariel Helwani on Monday. “Everybody who follows my career knows my struggle with UFC. They know I never start fighting with UFC because the promotion want me to be there. No, it was the fans pressure. I have opportunity to be in UFC because my fans put so much pressure [on them]. It’s not because they wanted me there.
