After her UFC 240 win, UFC fighter Cris Cyborg has gone a media blitz to fire back at UFC President Dana White for saying that she doesn’t want a rematch with Amanda Nunes.

In a Youtube video, that has since been removed, Cyborg posted a confrontation she had with White after UFC 240.

Cyborg claims her production edited the video to make White appear to say certain things he did not say in their conversation.

I want to let everyone know that the video was edited by my Production Team to make it appear as though Dana told me “and listen whenever you hear me saying stuff, I’m not saying …the truth.” Dana did not say that to me, and the subtitles in the video were incorrect. As you can see from the unedited video, Dana actually said “and listen, whenever you hear me saying stuff, I’m not saying negative things about you

After the video was released Dana White immediately announced that the UFC “was no longer in the Cyborg business:.


“I’m going to release her from her contract and I will not match any offers [she receives],” White said. “She is free and clear to go to Bellator or any of these other promotions and fight these easy fights she wants. Done. Done deal. I will literally, today, have my lawyer draft a letter to [Justino’s team saying] that she is free and clear.”

While Cyborg probably won’t be back in the UFC, Bellator president Scott Coker seems eager to reach out and sign her.

Reached for comment on UFC president Dana White’s stated plan to make Cyborg an unrestricted free agent, Bellator president Scott Coker told MMA Junkie, “That’s great news. I’ll be calling (Cyborg’s manager) Audie (Attar) in the next five minutes.”
