In her latest vlog, former UFC champion Cris Cyborg shows portions of a conversation with UFC President Dana White regarding a rematch with UFC bantamweight and featherweight champion Amanda Nunes.
In the video, White tells Cyborg that they want to book the fight between her and Nunes, following Cyborg telling Dana he knows she wanted the fight.
“You know I text you for the rematch. You know this. Stop lying about it,” Cyborg said. “What you are saying that I don’t want to fight? You know that I want to fight and I’m not scared,” she added before Dana replied back with.
“I’m not lying about it. I don’t know if you know how it played out with management and whatever but we want to do that fight. I want to do that fight right now. We’ll get it done.”
From there, he begins a sentence about how he does things to promote a fight, but the video and audio get cut out before anything can be said, along with the captioning being truncated.
Looking at the video, former UFC fighter, and current analyst/ONE FC executive Miesha Tate made note of that odd finishing edit.
“It was really edited poorly right there,” Tate said on MMA Tonight. “And I watched his mouth very closely. And, to me, the word ‘truth’ did not look like where they ended. It looked like he was saying, ‘When I’m saying stuff about that, I’m not talking’ … and I’m not convinced that the subtitles are accurate and exactly what he said. That’s my stance on it.”
“I think the video was definitely edited to favor the stance for Cyborg. I think the video was horribly edited because he was mid-sentence. He was mid-sentence, and they just cut it off. And I did not hear the word ‘truth,’ and it was in stride of another sentence. I didn’t get his lips pairing with the word ‘truth.’
“Why did we not get to hear what his follow-up sentence was? It felt like it was edited right there to make it sound like he said, ‘I’m not saying the truth,’ and people read the subtitle and they assume that’s what he’s saying. But I don’t know. There was a continuation, and they cut it right there.”
