Dana White fortfarande rasande på Cris Cyborg – trots att hon bett om ursäkt

Forne fjäderviktsmästarinnan Cris Cyborg fick veta förra veckan veta att hon fått sparken från UFC. Trots det har UFC:s VD Dana White har fortfarande saker att säga om henne.

Bara dagar efter hennes seger mot Felicia Spencer under UFC 240 som var sista matchen på hennes kontrakt, berättade White att han tröttnat på situationen med brasilianska och stängt alla dörrar gällande nytt kontrakt och matchningar. Vid många tillfällen har det uppstått tjafs mellan UFC och Cyborg, som känner att hon blivit orättvist behandlad och diskriminerad. Enligt White var det dock Cyborgs ‘tjat’ om en returmatch mot dubbelmästarinnan Amanda Nunes som gjorde att han fick nog.

White berättar nu att han inte känner någon ånger över att ha avslutat samarbetet med Cyborg.

Via ‘MMAJunkie’:

No, I wouldn’t do anything different. The one thing I’m glad I did was I pushed her to make sure she fought Amanda Nunes, because she didn’t want that fight the first time, let alone the second time. She wanted Cindy Dandois or Pam Sorensen.

Those are the fights she wanted, and she was turning down Amanda Nunes. I said, ‘That’s not going to happen.’ So we kept pushing and pushing and pushing and finally we got her to take the Amanda Nunes fight. I’m happy I did that. Other than that I wouldn’t change one thing in the last five years on Cyborg.

Cyborg laddade efter sin senaste match upp en video på sin YouTube-kanal på en konversation med White backstage, där det sedan visat sig att felaktig texting hade visats. Cyborg bad sedan om ursäkt för detta och skyllde det hela på sitt produktionsteam. White godtog ursäkten, men han känner ändå att det var med flit då det stämmer överens med hennes attityd under sin tid i organisationen.

Dealing with her has been a nightmare the entire time she’s been here. It’s been a bad experience dealing with Cyborg since Day 1. We brought in her after she tested positive for steroids and we made her a clean athlete with the best drug testing policy in all of sports the entire time she was here. When she talks about her legacy and her brand, her legacy and her brand, nothing’s better than knowing she’s a clean athlete after testing positive for steroids and all the negativity that surrounded her about being a dirty athlete. We bring her in here, we do all this stuff and she was just never happy.

Never happy, complaining about everything – she was a nightmare to deal with, and at the end of the day she knows, I know, Amanda Nunes knows, I tried to make that Nunes fight. She doesn’t want it. She doesn’t want it. She gets mad when I say I don’t blame her. I don’t blame her. If that was Amanda Nunes (at UFC 240) I think everyone can agree what would’ve happened in that fight. She’s unhappy, we’re unhappy, she lies and does that thing. See ya later. Have a nice life.

I don’t think there’s any peace between me and Cyborg. Whether you like me or you don’t like me, whatever your opinion is it doesn’t matter. What she did was dirty. It was dirty what she did with the video and all this other stuff in it. Meanwhile she’s out here saying she better get an apology from me? Yeah. I got an apology from her. Because what she did was one of the dirtiest things. It had to kill her to apologize to me. Kill her to do it. But what she did is one of the dirtiest things you can do to somebody. That’s why she apologized.

Cyborg har berättat att hon vill fixa relationen med White och ta matchen mot Nunes. Hon meddelade att hon hade ett möte bokat med UFC:s representanter för att diskutera det hela under onsdagen, men White menar att det avbokades. Han tror inte heller att ett nytt möte med Nunes skulle bli annorlunda än det första.

She doesn’t want to fight Amanda Nunes. You guys, the fans, need to get it into your head that she did everything she could, including doctoring a video, lying about what I said, to avoid fighting Amanda Nunes. The fans and the media just need to get it through your heads that all that (expletive) that was going on, ‘He’s bullying me.’ Bullying you? You’ve been here for five years. What are you talking about? You’re talking about stuff that happened five years ago. That was five years ago. It’s all a smokescreen to not fight Amanda Nunes. She doesn’t want that fight. Otherwise we wouldn’t even be having this conversation right now. I’ve had problems over the last 20 years with plenty of fighters. From Tito Ortiz to Mark Hunt to god knows who else. I can’t even think off the top of my head. We always made fights. She doesn’t want to fight Amanda Nunes.

Amanda Nunes will knock her out again in the first round. I know it, you know it and she knows it. She will not do that fight. Period. End of story. We have gone round and round and round with her and she is surrounded by not very bright people. You can see how this whole thing played out. You have to look at this thing objectively and take out what you may think of me or the UFC and all this bull(expletive) and look at what the real facts are. The facts are all this was said and done to avoid fighting Amanda Nunes and she could walk away and look like, ‘Oh, they bullied me.’ Doctoring the video they doctored and lying and doing all the things they’ve done leading up to here. Cyborg likes to play that she’s this really nice person, she’s being bullied and all this other (expletive).

Cyborgs möte med Nunes blev hennes andra förlust i karriären.
