One of the most feared female mixed martial artists is Cris Cyborg, though she does have a chip on her shoulder right now. This is concerning her knockout loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 232, a match that lasted only 51 seconds. Compared to her previous fights and opponents, the shocking result was undoubtedly something most did not expect.

Regardless, mixed martial arts fans are expecting a rematch between Cyborg and Nunes to happen at some point. However, UFC president Dana White threw some shade recently, taking a swipe at why the Brazilian has yet to sign a contract for a rematch with The Lioness. The UFC top brass also rubbed it in a bit by saying that Cyborg was afraid to lose again, TMZ Sports reported.

"I think that [Cyborg] is at the point where she's afraid to lose again. Losing again isn't something she's interested in," White said.

The 34-year-old Brazilian mixed martial artist responded to White’s comments and bared how she and the UFC president did not exactly have a good relationship. She says she would be surprised if White said something nice about her.

As for the comments, Cyborg said that White is in no position to speak about a fighter’s mindset and added that White has never fought before because he is the promoter, TMZ Sports reported.

As for the rematch with Nunes, Cyborg said she prefers not to talk about it for now. She is scheduled to face Felicia Spencer at UFC 240 this weekend – a fight that could very well dictate if she is ready to face Nunes for a rematch. She is determined to bounce back and secure a win – after which she is expected to be swarmed by questions of a rematch with Nunes.

Ironically, there are a lot of things tied up to that UFC 240 clash. For one, it will be Cyborg’s final fight of his UFC contract and the 34-year-old mixed martial artist has made it known that she intends to test the open market. Seeing how she is undoubtedly one of the best female MMA fighters ever, she is not expected to fall short of suitors. Aside from the UFC, promotions like the Bellator, ONE Championship, or even a pro-wrestling stint are just some of the options Cristiane Justino Venancio may consider, ESPN reported.
