On her part, she tweeted “ The UFC had an extra welterweight make weight when Tyron Woodley fought Darren Till just in case anyone got injured”.

Mentioning Mick Maynard, one of the matchmakers in UFC, Cyborg continued by saying,

“I would like to see another female featherweight do the same thing for Dec 29 UFC 232, Mick Maynard, so I don’t have to experience what Valentina Shevchenko did at UFC 213”.
