Apparently Cris Cyborg confronted Angela Magana on the vicious stuff she had been writing about her on social media and began cussing her out. Initially Magana was low key but when she realised people were filming the face off, she began giving it back to Cyborg.
Weidman says he tried to intervene but was firmly and snappily told by Cris Cyborg not to touch her which is when he hastily backed off.
This is when Cyborg cracked Magana in the face and Magana became teary and said she was going to complain to the police.
Initially Chris Weidman says he didn’t know the history between the two and that Magana had been bitching Cyborg out on social media. After the fracas he found out and says he understands why Cris Cyborg did what she did.
Apparently Dana White has footage of the fight and Weidman’s strategic retreat.
Weidman told MMA Fighitng ,”They were busting my balls but I have no shame. What am I going to do, step in there to Cyborg and say, ‘No, I will touch you’ and she kicks my ass? What am I gonna do kick her ass? Either way, I’m screwed.
“What if she knocked me out? I may as well just retire then.”
