Video: See Cris Cyborg confront “liar” Dana White backstage
Despite being one of the most dominant fighters in women’s featherweight history, Cris “Cyborg” Justinho has had a shaky relationship with the UFC. In recent times, the source of conflict has mostly been the particulars regarding “Cyborg’s” next fight. While she has been adamant about wanting to rematch Amanda Nunes, who knocked “Cyborg” out last year to win the title, a different story has come from UFC president Dana White. The UFC boss has claimed that “Cyborg” hasn’t wanted to face Nunes again, which the former champ has taken issue with.

At UFC 240 “Cyborg” returned to the win column following a unanimous decision victory over Felicia Spencer. While backstage she spotted White, and confronted him about the comments he’s made about her avoiding the rematch with Nunes. In the video uploaded to her Youtube channel, you can see how it all went down.
“Stop lying about this,” Cyborg told White.
“What you are saying, that I don’t want to fight, you know that I want to fight, and I’m not scared.”
White appeared uncomfortable when confronted about this, and all indications now are that “Cyborg” will get the rematch she desires with countrywoman Nunes.
