Cris Cyborg NOT in Inaugural UFC Featherweight Title Fight, Takes It Out on Twitter

December 14, 2016

For the longest time, UFC president Dana White said there just weren’t enough top-level women to fill a 145-pound division in the Octagon.

Now, after having decided to institute the weight class with a championship fight at UFC 208, the promotion is going to do so without the one woman in the world that has ruled the division for the past 10 years… Cris “Cyborg” Justino.

Cris Cyborg vs Gina CaranoCyborg had fought, begged, and pleaded for a UFC women’s featherweight division for years to no avail. 

When the UFC finally decided to launch the weight class, it tried to put her in the inaugural title fight, but negotiations failed to produce a title fight with timing that suited the UFC. So they moved on. 

As you might imagine, Cyborg is pissed, and she turned to Twitter to let out years of frustration in a marathon outburst.
