UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg reacts to news that UFC 232 will be moved from Las Vegas to Los Angeles.
Cyborg defends her title against bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes, December 29 on pay-per-view.
UFC 232 is headlined by a light heavyweight title rematch between former champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson. Jones won the first fight during what many believe to be a controversial decision several years ago. Current champion Daniel Cormier will relinquish his belt once the octagon cage closes.
A drug test earlier this month found trace amounts of Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone (DHCMT), or turinabol, in Jones’ system.
Jones war previously suspended for 15-months after a positive finding in 2017.
Now, the Nevada Athletic Commission does not feel they have enough time to investigate so the entire fight card will be moved.
