Earlier today a report came out showing that Vitor Belfort had tested positive for high testosterone levels three weeks before his title with Jon Jones and the UFC knew. They also accidentally sent the info to a group of people who weren’t supposed to see the results. After that the UFC sent out another email telling the recipients to ignore the email and delete it ASAP. So, according to the report, it seems as though the UFC knew about the test results and didn’t want anyone else to.
Well Invicta FC featherweight champ Cris Cyborg caught wind of the news and took to her Facebook to voice her frustration over the double standard she feels the UFC is showing.
Here’s what she said:
Hmmmm…somebody tests positive for steroids BEFORE fighting for a UFC World Championship, but is still allowed to fight, and it takes almost 3 years before the public finds out?
Open your eyes!
I am clean, and am willing to prove it with a year of Olympic Testing before any fight, I wonder if the current UFC champion at 135 is willing to agree to the same? what do you mean? some are crucified and others are not even mentioned!
She also made it clear in a comment that she wasn’t trying to call out fellow Brazilian Vitor Belfort, just used his story as an example.
Has nothing to do with Vitor. his name only appeared. It was this point I am emphasizing. I am emphasizing that everyone has to be punished or equal rights to all.
Cyborg is expected to attempt the drop to 140 for her next fight in Invicta FC, then I guess we’ll see how things go from there.
