UFC strawweight Angela Magana and former Invicta featherweight champion Cris Cyborg got into an altercation over the weekend at the UFC athlete retreat in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Cyborg and Magana were seen arguing in a video released from the incident where Cyborg punched Magana and things were immediately broken up.
Cyborg is heard in the video telling Magana that she doesn’t respect anyone and Magana yelled back in Cyborg’s face, “I can talk about whoever the f**k I want!” It was at that moment, things turned physical for a short time.
Since then, some fans and fighters have been divided, taking sides to the beef that started from a social media post from Magana that made fun of Cyborg’s appearance in a photo. Cyborg has since posted a lengthy statement regarding the incident and brought up the bullying that has occurred throughout her career.
One of Cyborg’s close friends and training partners, Gabi Garcia, is one of those that have spoken up about the incident and is looking to get revenge for her friend.
Magana posted a photo to social media of an Instagram comment exchange between Garcia and herself.
Garcia: Do you challenge Cyborg? No rules, no weight, free time. Fight me! I challenge you and your Friend Bec to fight me at the same time. P.s You need to learn Jiujitsu properly!
Magana: @gabigarciaoficial so when you fought that senor citizen why didn’t you give her the same advantage. But you know what ill challenge you to a boxing match after the jits match dude.
Magana said in the caption of her post, “#yourmajesty is down for a match #senorcitizenabuser #howdareyou #swinggorillaswing”
