UFC President Dana White continues to say that the former UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg (20-2) is not interested in facing the current UFC bantamweight and featherweight champion Amanda Nunes (18-4).
The pair met at UFC 232’s co-main event when “Lioness” KO’d her fellow compatriot in the 1st round and taking the featherweight belt from her. Despite the 34-year-old “Cyborg” stating that she wants the rematch, White keeps on sticking to his story that Justino is afraid to face Nunes because she’ll probably lose again.
Dana: Cyborg won't sign the Nunes contract.
"It's pretty obvious why she wouldn't want that fight…I think she's at the point where she's afraid to lose again…Amanda wants it, we want it, she (Cyborg) doesn't want it"https://t.co/ZoeAhXcrap#UFC #MMA #WMMA #TeamMMA4LIFE pic.twitter.com/5TgRoU3c3k

“I think it’s pretty obvious why she wouldn’t want that fight. It’s a bad fight for her.”
”I think that “Cyborg” is at the point where she’s afraid to lose again. Losing again isn’t something she’s interested in.”
“Cris Cyborg” will be facing Felicia Spencer this upcoming weekend at UFC 240 in Canada. After that fight, her current contract will be over and many fans believe she won’t sign a new multi-fight deal with UFC.
