Cyborg Hits Back At Holm Gym Insult
Written by RockSport on January 2, 2018
It’s a brand new year, but MMA Superstar Cris Cyborg finds herself having to deal with the same old insults.
The UFC women’s featherweight champion defended her title for the first time and won her 19th consecutive fight on Saturday, earning a five-round unanimous decision over Holly Holm at UFC 219 in Las Vegas, Nev. It was a triumphant moment for the 32-year-old Brazilian who arguably cemented herself as the greatest female fighter in MMA history.
However, not everyone was content to just let Cyborg have her day. A photographer who was at the event representing the JacksonWink gym (where Holm trains) posted a since-deleted Instagram message in which he used the words “dude”, “he”, and “his” to describe Cyborg. These insults are in line with past comments made by several prominent figures ranging from Dana White to Joe Rogan, comparing Cyborg’s physique to that of a man.
On Monday, she took to Instagram herself to address the insult.
