Dana White Confirms Amanda Nunes Wants Cyborg Rematch After Holm Title Fight!

Dana White Says UFC Two-Division Queen Amanda Nunes Wants Cris Cyborg Rematch After 135-Pound Title Defense Versus Holly Holm


Amanda Nunes turned the lights out on Cris Cyborg in the co-main event of UFC 232. The wild brawl was ended in the first round.

While Cris Cyborg was ready to put the gloves on and fight toe-to-toe immediately, Amanda did everything to sit on the sidelines and evade the rematch at all costs. On one occasion, the first female dual champ even said that she’d make Cris wait for two years for their second fight.

UFC had other ideas too. Amanda Nunes is set to defend her Bantamweight strap against Holly Holm at UFC 239, in July 2019. It seems Cyborg is frustrated because of Nunes’ excuses. She took to her Twitter and threw a hook.

#CyborgNation Remember I asked for an immediate rematch and was told No.

This would probably go unnoticed, but a reporter read the controversial tweet to the UFC head honcho Dana White at the UFC 238 post-fight press conference. (h/t

”Cyborg just tweeted and said she asked for an immediate rematch [with Nunes] and you had told her no,” the reporter said. “So … do you remember that, was that accurate?”

Surprisingly, Dana White said Nunes wants another clash against the former division queen after 135-pound match against Holly Holm! But he left some space for change too.

”Hey Cyborg,” White said with a chuckle before consulting with UFC exec Hunter Campbell. “Amanda wanted to fight at 135 again, defend her belt there. She’s fighting Holly. Then go back to 145 to face Cyborg. She wants to fight you now.”

”She wants that Cyborg fight bad, so if Cyborg is interested, we can do it,” he said. “If Cyborg’s not interested, like I said, it’s okay. Not saying anything about Cyborg. I’m just saying that’s just the way it played out. But she’s ready willing and able. If she beats Holly, she wants to fight Cyborg. So if Cyborg wants the fight, it’s there.”

So please, give us your thoughts on this. Would you like to see Cyborg vs Nunes rematch if the two-division champ defeats Holly Holm?
