Apparently, Cris Cyborg isn’t a fan of Daniel Cormier because she just went after him.
So here’s the deal, the former UFC women’s featherweight champion went after the former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight king because he recently stated that he got a cool $1 million buckos from the UFC as a reward due to his part of making a successful PPV event buyrate for the promotion while feuding with Jon Jones.
Cris Cyborg Deletes Tweet Knocking “Shill” Daniel Cormier
“When people talk about ‘You’re a white knight for the UFC’ why wouldn’t I be? They changed my life,” Cormier said on ESPN (H/T to Bloody Elbow). “After I had lost to Jon Jones, Lorenzo Fertitta gave me a million dollars. Him and Dana gave me a million dollars. They actually called me and said, ‘We are going to give you a million dollars for for the job that you’ve done.”
“So when people say, ‘Wow you made $80 to fight Jon Jones and that was a big pay-per-view…’ No, they gave me a million dollars. I didn’t get PPV (points), I was just a challenger fighting a guy who has defended his belt all those times.”
And then Cyborg fired out this tweet:
“When UFC moved UFC 232 from NV to CA on four days notice, they refused to compensate me for paid appearances I could no longer attend in Vegas. At UFC 240 they refused to buy my flights to the fights because I did camp in. I was the PPV co-main event,” Cyborg wrote. “@dc_mma you’re paid to shill.”
