I stopped watching UFC a long time ago. I love UFC and MMA but I can’t watch ’em all the time since their ppv’s are way overpriced.
Anyway, I find this feud kind of interesting so I thought I would respond my thoughts on it. From what I’m reading, Cris Cyborg is dying for a rematch with Amanda Nunes in which she lost to her by knockout last year at UFC 232. She’s been begging for the rematch for a long while but Dana maintains that she doesn’t want the rematch and claims that Cyborg is afraid of losing to Nunes again. From what I’m seeing, Cyborg denies those claims and Cyborg really wants the rematch pretty badly. Like I said, looks like she’s been campaigning for the rematch for a while now.
If she wants the rematch then Dana should give it to her, what’s the problem? Why does Dana have to go out of his way and terminate her contract just because she wants a rematch? That’s all she really wants really.
What is Dana afraid of? Is he afraid of her because she’s different? That’s what it’s sounding like to me. I think the real reason Dana ended up terminating her is ’cause he doesn’t want the way he treated her behind the scenes to get out there… he’s afraid of getting in trouble for his harassment and bullying against her. Either that or he’s scared to death of her actually winning the rematch.
Why does Dana keep putting words in her mouth by saying she doesn’t want the fight when she kept saying publicly she does want it? Her lashing out at him and UFC is a smokescreen to duck a rematch? Really? When fighters want a fight, they really want it. They don’t play around.
With that being said, I stand with Cyborg. I love UFC and MMA, don’t get me wrong but I’m not afraid to say that Dana can be a bit of an asshole.
