Cris Cyborg fires back at the JacksonWink camp and demands an apology!

The most feared women’s fighter on the planet, Cris Cyborg, successfully defended her featherweight crown at UFC 219 this past weekend defeating Holly Holm via unanimous decision.

After the horn sounded to end round five of their title fight war, Holm and Cyborg embraced in a memorable moment of respect. Both ladies were bloodied and bruised, this from spending the previous twenty-five minutes trying to take each others heads off. But still, Holm and Cyborg felt compelled to hug it out after what was a tremendous battle.

Unfortunately, not every team member associated with the UFC 219 headliner was respectful after the title fights conclusion. While Cyborg was on stage at the UFC 219 press conference, a photographer from the JacksonWink snapped a photo of Cris and posted it to social media while referencing the featherweight champ as “dude” and “man”.

“This dude is tough as hell! That being said at the press conference he said Holly was the first one to make his nose bleed! You are my hero @HollyHolm see you back in the gym #UFC219”

Today, Cris Cyborg fired back at the JacksonWink camp and demanded an apology.

“I want an apology @JacksonWinkMMA I was nothing but respectful to @hollyholm and your team @ufc @Mickmaynard2”

Following her victory over Holly Holm at UFC 219, Cris Cyborg proceeded to callout Megan Anderson for February’s UFC 221 event in Perth, Australia.
