Recently UFC president Dana White said that former UFC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg doesn’t want to fight current UFC bantamweight and featherweight champion in a rematch because she is afraid of losing.

Dana White: Cris Cyborg wants easier fights - Cyborg

Majority of the MMA fans want to see Cyborg fight Nunes in a rematch, but UFC president Dana White feels that Cris might leave UFC for easier fights elsewhere. Cyborg is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Felicia Spencer this past Sunday at UFC 240 in Edmonton, Canada.

That’s up to Cris,” Dana White told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto after UFC 240. “Amanda Nunes was blowing me up all night. She was like ‘Get her to take this fight. Get her to take this fight.’ I know every time I speak, Cyborg thinks I’m speaking negatively about her, which I’m not. I’m just speaking facts.

After watching her fight tonight and after her last fight, I don’t blame her for not wanting to fight Amanda Nunes. If that was Amanda Nunes in there tonight, you know . . .

However, White accusations of Cyborg not wanting to fight Nunes hasn’t sat well with the former featherweight champion and has accused Dana of lying and bullying her.

Cyborg has been around for a long time,” White said. “In my honest opinion, Cyborg sees herself in the twilight of her career, and I think she would like some easier fights. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Many fighters have left to move on to easier fights and there’s nothing wrong with that.

When you get to a certain age and a certain point of her career and you look like Cris tonight, if that was Amanda Nunes, it’s a whole different ballgame. I don’t blame her for that, I’m not criticizing her for that, but these are facts. And the fact is, I will make the fight if she wants to fight Amanda, and Amanda wants that fight.” (H/T – MMA Fighting.com)
