Cris Cyborg Issues Apology To UFC Head Honcho Dana White
Last night promotion head honcho Dana White released former UFC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg from her contract. The relationship between Brazilian and White has been frosty in recent weeks following Cyborg’s UFC 240 win.
In the aftermath of her win, Cyborg criticizes White for bullying her and damaging her brand and said she’s afraid to do a Nunes rematch.
Moreover, Cyborg discussed numerous topics from the past and asked an apology from Dana White before re-signing with promotion.
Brazilian fighter took to social media and issues apology to Dana White for team tampering a UFC 240 backstage video. In that Video, Cyborg and White were having a conversation. In it, former champ discussed certain statements that White made including a Nunes rematch.
In that footage, her team made some changes and made it appear that White said some statements that he didn’t mention in that conversation.
“Hey guys, I know that many people saw the video of my confrontation with Dana White after UFC 240 that was posted on my official YouTube channel, Twitter account and Instagram account. I want to let everyone know that the video was edited by my Production Team to make it appear as though Dana told me “and listen whenever you hear me saying stuff, I’m not saying …the truth.” Dana did not say that to me, and the subtitles in the video were incorrect. As you can see from the unedited video, Dana actually said “and listen, whenever you hear me saying stuff, I’m not saying negative things about you.” Dana and I have had many disagreements during my career in the UFC, and I have been adamant about standing up for myself in situations where I feel my character and statements have been misrepresented and used against me. But I also take pride in being an honest person and a true professional. I take full responsibility for the actions that resulted in the edited video being posted on my social media accounts. We were wrong, and I have addressed this issue with my Production Team so that it doesn’t ever happen again in the future. Finally, I want to apologize to Dana White for posting the video. Even though we will continue to disagree about numerous issues, I will always stand up for doing what is right.”
Cyborg did the right thing in offering her apology; however, things are too late now as UFC is over her. Now she can take a role in any other promotion like Bellator.
