Cris Cyborg Looking To Test Free Agency After Dana White’s Latest Snub

Cris ‘Cyborg’s’ uneasy relationship with Dana White appears to be taking a turn for the worse again after the UFC president’s latest remarks about the former featherweight champion.

“[Nunes] wants to fight Cyborg again,” White said aftter UFC 239. “I don’t think Cyborg wants to fight her again, but she wants Cyborg.”

That comment was not taken too kindly by Cyborg who insists that she does want to fight Nunes again and has made that clear to the UFC brass.

“If you believe I’m scared or don’t want a rematch, you’re probably also the same type of fan who believed Ronda Rousey wanted to fight [me] every time Dana White said it during an interview,” the Brazilian vented on The Ariel Helwani Show. “Everyone knows I asked for the immediate rematch and was told no after waiting nine months for the first fight.”

Now Cyborg has suggested that with her current contract soon coming to an end, she may see what other promoters will pay to sign her, rather than just choose to re-sign with the UFC.

“I was at home and watching the press conference and I cannot believe Dana White said that,” Justino told ESPN. “The opportunity is coming and I have the opportunity to see my value with other promoters. I think it’s cool to see that before you can hear anything that you don’t have value. Let’s see what another promoter has to say.”
