Dana White Wouldn’t Do Anything Differently Regarding Cris ‘Cyborg’ Relationship
By: Cole Shelton Aug 7, 2019
The UFC recently elected not to re-sign Cristiane
Justino, and promotion president Dana White says she was a
“nightmare” to work with.
White claims that regardless of what “Cyborg” said, she never
wanted the Amanda
Nunes rematch and instead asked for different fights. Although
both were disgruntled with their relationship, the UFC boss says he
wouldn’t do anything differently.
“No, I wouldn’t do anything different,” White said after the
Contender Series (video via
“The one thing I’m glad I did was I pushed her to make sure she
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.”
White also admitted that the doctored video Justino posted of him
pushed him over the edge, as he called it “dirty” and claims there
is no peace between the two.
