The video did not show the entire conversation between “Cyborg” and White, and as it turns out, not all the subtitles reported what White actually said. So, this is the latest in a series of incidents and issues between White and “Cyborg” over the years, and it will be interesting to see what impact, if any, this has. On Friday, the UFC released an interview with White, in which he announced the promotion would not match any contract offers that come “Cyborg’s” way.
