Cris Cyborg’s time with the UFC may be over, but Tyron Woodley doesn’t think that’ll last long. Woodley spoke with TMZ for a new interview and discussed the Cyborg situation, which saw her get released by the UFC following a war of words with Dana White over whether she wanted a rematch with Amanda Nunes and Cyborg’s videos alleging that White has bullied her in the past. It all came to a head when Cyborg posted a video that she later acknowledged was doctored by one of her production people, which was made to look like White admitted to lying about her.

Talking with the site, Woodley said that the bad blood will not prevent Cyborg from returning at any real point. “Cyborg is too big of a name,” he said. “There’s too much money in Cyborg. Cyborg was the greatest female fighter ever until Amanda Nunes took her out … Dana White is a business man.”
