UFC's fighter retreat didn't go off without a hitch.
Current Invicta FC Featherweight Champion and UFC fighter Cris "Cyborg" Justino reportedly struck fellow UFC competitor Angela Magana, who competes at a weight class 30 pounds below Justino. According to MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani, Justino was angered over what she perceived to be offensive tweets from the outspoken Magana. Cyborg herself tweeted about the incident.
Helwani also noted that there was little security at the WME-IMG produced retreat, which ends Sunday. Magana was said rocked by the punch, but didn't fall to the ground. Prior to the blow, the two had a verbal confrontation prior. Magana's best friend Bec Rawlings denied that Magana was rocked from said shot. The confrontation began when Cyborg told Magana to respect her, which Magana replied to by saying "I don't have to respect you! F--- You!"
Magana would later imply that she plans on pressing charges against Cyborg.
That was far from the only controversy, as former UFC title challenger Jessica Penne accused an Anheuser Busch speaker of being drunk.
Kajan Johnson, who hasn't fought in 20 months, also made headlines. Many may remember him calling out CM Punk during a Q&A, but he was also all too ready to criticize the UFC-Reebok deal.
After the three minute argument, Johnson was escorted out of the retreat. Fellow fighter Eric Spicely commended Johnson for speaking out.
Despite the incidents mentioned, UFC fighter Paul Felder told Fightful.com that the retreat has been largely positive.
