Cyborg Issues Statement On End Of “UFC Era”

Former UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Cyborg last competed in the co-main event of UFC 240, defeating Felicia Spencer by unanimous decision.

That bout would serve as the final one for Cyborg in the UFC as UFC President Dana White would announce a few days later that the promotion is getting out of the “Cyborg business.”

The free agent fighter would also respond to some comments by people who posted in her Instagram (via Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting):

On a rematch with Amanda Nunes:

“Dana didn’t want to give me the rematch, only a six-fight contract, and the UFC unfortunately doesn’t have girls in my division. I’d die in the UFC without fighting, and still being defamed, so the best option would be see other promotions that have my division, where I could fight more often. Who knows, maybe one day Amanda and I will rematch. No one knows what tomorrow might bring, God’s the one who makes my plans.”

On where she may sign with next:

“I’m going to a place people knows about the word respect. Uncle Dana don’t want give the rematch .. I can’t be stuck [an event] don’t have my division.. I can’t be fighting 1 time per year.. and the boss try damage my brand. I’m fighter and human [being] too.”

Both Bellator MMA and PFL fighters/TV commentators have made their cases as to why Cyborg should sign with them, but nothing has been made official at this time.
