Cris Cyborg is a pending free agent, but the former featherweight champion is not happy with her employer. UFC president, Dana White has been bullying her for quite some time, and after losing to Amanda Nunes, White said Cyborg was afraid of the fight.
“I think a lot of things have to fix and change for [me] to have more fights in UFC,” Cyborg said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show. “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.
“They don’t help me. They don’t help me grow my brand. All the time they try to damage my brand, especially Dana White and he’s the head of UFC. If you look at the face of UFC, who is the face of UFC? Dana White, and he continues to damage my brand. It started a long time ago. It started when I was in Strikeforce. I don’t know what his problem [is] but he continues doing this and I proved him wrong.”
The feud between the two has been going on for quite some time and if Cris Cyborg is to re-sign she wants an apology from Dana White.
“Of course he has to apologize,” Cyborg says. “He has family, he has kids and I think if he wants to be honest, he’s supposed to do this. I don’t know if he has a heart, but what he’s doing is not just [affecting] me. He’s [affecting] people around me, my family. It’s not right. When you’re doing these type fo things, there’s no avoiding my family. He’s [affected] them. . .
“[And it must be in ] public. It’s easy to talk [in private] like Joe Rogan. Joe Rogan said ‘I’m sorry’ when there were no cameras, just by myself. No, you want to talk about me, how I have a dick, you have to talk in public. You’re not a man, to me you’re not a man. If Joe Rogan a man, he will say I am sorry in public, like what he said. Not coming behind in the room and talk to me in my ear. ‘I’m sorry.’ This is not type of man that I know.”
Whether or not she gets an apology is to be seen.
