Cris Cyborg’s free agency has caused Dana White and Cris Cyborg to make public statements that contradict each other. Who do you believe?

I wouldn’t believe Dana White in a war of words with just about anybody. He’s a habitual liar and exaggerator and he has almost no credibility. There’s a chance Cyborg is exaggerating or is just oversensitive, but I’ll take my chances believing her over him. The things he says publicly are bad enough, let alone what he probably says privately. This is like a good amount of Cyborg fights we’ve seen in the past, a quick 1st round TKO win for her.

I believe Cris Cyborg whole heartedly. Isn’t it odd that when Dana White says so and so “doesn’t want to fight” that it’s always a big star in the middle of contract negotiations? By saying that Cyborg is looking for easy fights, Dana is setting the table for Cyborg to leave but he isn’t just going to let her walk so he’ll play this game to make sure a competitor overpays for Cyborg. There was a time when I felt UFC was better off without Cris Cyborg, but I think that time has passed and now Cris Cyborg might be better off without UFC.

I don’t really believe either one of them, if I had to pick it would be Cyborg. Cyborg has always seemed as if she was coming from a different place than most, and is often misunderstood. Dana White is a notorious liar and piece of human filth so there’s that.
