Tito Ortiz asks UFC to release Cris Cyborg
On this week’s edition of AXSTV’s Inside MMA, Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos’ manager, Tito Ortiz, revealed they have requested her release from the UFC.
According to Ortiz, the UFC is offering his client a lucrative deal, but they want to “stick her over at Invicta.” The Brazilian is looking for a four-fight agreement, with the last scrap coming against current UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey.
However, Cyborg wants all of her bouts, including the blockbuster against Rousey, to take place at a weight no less than 140 pounds. Unfortunately for Ortiz and Co., it’s bantamweight or bust for women in the UFC.
