After falling to Amanda Nunes, Cris Cyborg has been pretty vocal about wanting a rematch.
After defeating Felicia Spencer this past weekend at UFC 240, Cyborg took the opportunity to confront White backstage to ask him why he was making public statements that she was avoiding the rematch with Nunes.
“You know I text you for the rematch. You know this. Stop lying about it,” Cyborg said in the video she released Wednesday. “What you are saying that I don’t want to fight. You know that I want to fight and I’m not scared.”
Dana White can be heard saying that he wasn’t lying :
“I’m not lying about it,” White said. “I don’t know if you know how it played out with management and whatever but we want to do that fight. I want to do that fight right now. We’ll get it done.”
White did say during the UFC 240 post-fight presser that the rematch between Nunes and Cyborg is the fight he wants to make.
Nunes dethroned Cyborg at UFC 232 in December via first-round stoppage to become the the third fighter in the UFC to simultaneously hold two world titles.
