Cris Cyborg is undoubtedly one of the most popular and distinguished fights in the entire MMA world. She is Bellator Women’s Featherweight Champion, having held the title since January of 2020. Not only is Cyborg one of the most celebrated female mixed martial artists in her field but she is one of the most successful as she hasn’t lost a fight in several years. That loss came against Amanda Nunes at UFC 232 on December 29th, 2018.
Dana White is the President of the UFC and is certainly a controversial figure in the world of MMA. Dana White was also previously accused of an ‘illegal crime’ in Las Vegas.
Dana White’s mother, June White, wrote a tell-all unauthorized biography of the UFC president in 2011, which included his childhood and how he changed post-success.
Titled Dana White, King of MMA, the book delved into how he was once a loving friend and a caring son who turned into an “egotistical, self-centered, arrogant, and cruel” vindictive tyrant who did not care about others’ feelings.
Cris Cyborg tweeted her thoughts on Dana White slapping his wife in response to journalist Kevin Iole’s column on the matter. She took issue with Iole’s “when he chose to slap back after his wife first slapped him” comment.
“I watched the video and saw a larger man grab his wife by the arm aggressively and pull her into his personal space. That was the fist [sic] physical aggression in the video.”
