she wanted the Nunes fight, I guess you guys forgot she was wearing a Nunes Vs Cyborg 2 shirt while she was in the UFC. Dana is the reason the fight didnt happen...im guessing money...you guys always like to shit on the fighters when that wasnt the case at all
Ohhhh. She was wearing a shirt. That solves it. Do your research man. You don’t know what the fuck you are talking about. She had 1 fight on her contract and refused to fight Amanda. Dana tried his ass off to make it. She fought Spencer and fled town.
The ol shirt explanation. I’m wearing a plain green tee, I must be the Hulk.
what an idiot that guy
As I understand it she wanted the rematch but crazy $.
She didn't want to accept that she was the challenger now & the crazy $ deserves to Go to Amanda.
She needed to beat Amanda in the rematch then demand insane $.
SHE NEEDED THE REMATCH.
The ufc did not. Amanda did not.
Cyborg didn't seem to understand this.
I get that it sucks doing the
Rematch as last fight on existing contract but she had lost her last fight.
It is what it is.
Cyborg knew if she lost rematch the ufc probably wouldn't want her anymore and she's be jobless.
She could've gone to bellator Tho & maybe made less than she'd have made after the single losss to Amanda but either way she was coming in off a loss so I don't think the difference would be all that much.
Either way bellator is marketing the second most feared woman in the world as the most feared and everyone knows it.
She herself will alway wonder if she just got caught or Amanda is better. But it falls on her and her manager.
I can't see a single reason the ufc would prop up bellator and risk Amanda Vs the one woman with a small chance to beat her even tho Amanda already smashed her fast. It would make zero sense to the ufc or Amanda.
I'm sure they think Amanda would win again (why wouldn't they?) but they have nothing to gain and much to lose.
Cyborg must know this and all she has left for the rest of her life is to say she's scared or some crap.
If she didn't know that that was her future the second she left the ufc then she didn't really think it thru
Its crazy... to the hardcore fans, Nunes vs Cyborg II would have been one of the biggest fights in WMMA history and it did not happen because Cyborg left for Bellator.
Right before that, Mighty Mouse vs Cejudo III would have been the biggest fight in FLW history and it did not happen because Johnson left for ONE.
Big fights like those not happening due to the promotions issue is something that will always hurt the fans.
MMA is only as great as it is because UFC has like 80% of the top 20 ranked fighters. If top 20/top 30 get more spread out between UFC/Bellator/ONE/RIZIN/ACA/PFL etc.... that only keeps more and more big fights from getting made.
