UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Cyborg was cited for battery by the Las Vegas Police Department after attacking Angela Magana at the UFC Fighters Retreat last May.
MMA Fighting is now reporting that the champion has had the charges dismissed after issuing a submittal plea with the Las Vegas Municipal Court. A submittal plea is not an admission of guilt, but a way for first time offenders to have misdemeanor charges dropped against them.
The judge in the case has ordered Cyborg to pay a fine of $398 and also attend anger management courses, which she has already done on both ends.
Cyborg took to her official website to issue the following statement on the matter:
“The entire experience was a learning opportunity. After the completion of my Anger Management class, I feel I have gained additional tools which will help me make better decisions on how to handle the negative effects of online bullying and harassment within the work place. I am glad to move forward from the experience and have already started to create a national anti bullying program which I hope will help others dealing with similar examples of online bullying to find positive outcomes while empowering them with the self confidence it requires to move past the experience.”
Magana is no longer with the UFC, as she was cut after a loss to Amanda Cooper late last year at UFC 218. Cyborg was last seen in action at UFC 222, successfully defending her title against Yana Kunitskaya.
