Cris Cyborg may have new issues with the UFC, but Dana White says there’s no negativity from his side. White spoke following UFC 240 (per MMA Weekly) about the comments Cyborg made in a new video, in which she claimed the UFC is “never gonna give me the rematch” with Amanda Nunes unless she signs a new deal with the company. Cyborg called the situation “bulls**t” and added, “If we are suppose to be business partners and building trust so that we can work towards a new deal let’s stop the lies.”

Highlights from White’s comments are below:

On Cyborg’s comments about him: “She’s mad at me again, for some reason. I am not saying anything negative about Cyborg. She does not want to fight Amanda Nunes. That is a fact. Why she would be mad at me because she doesn’t want to fight Amanda Nunes is beyond me. I have no ill will toward her.”

On the UFC’s relationship with Cyborg: “It’s not like we’re trying to chase her out of here. We’re trying to get something done. We’re trying to get another fight. Or, if she wanted to, she could do a one-fight deal and fight Amanda … She’d have the belt and there’s a clause that goes along with the belt, so it wouldn’t really be a (one fight deal if she won).”
