Cyborg Apologizes To Dana White After Posting Altered Video Of UFC 240 Confrontation

Former UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Cyborg last competed at UFC 240, defeating Felicia Spencer by unanimous decision.

That bout was potentially the final one for Cyborg under the UFC banner, as UFC President Dana White recently revealed that the promotion is getting out of the “Cyborg business.”

Before that announcement by White, a video was posted by Cyborg allegedly showing Cyborg accusing White of lying about her through social media and various interviews.

Cyborg is now apologizing for putting the video out there with incorrect subtitles, making it seem like White was saying stuff that he didn’t actually say.

The apology was posted on the UFC Instagram page:



(via @CrisCyborg) ・・・ 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.
