Cris Cyborg Puts Ronda Rousey and Dana White On Blast for Bullying Her

There has been a long history of friction between Invicta FC featherweight champion Cris “Cyborg” Justino, UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey, and Rousey's boss, Dana White.

Everyone has been trying for y ears and saying for years that a fight between Cyborg and Rousey needs to happen. Each side has continuously accused the other of running from the fight, constantly finding different ways to take digs at each other via social media, interviews, and the like.

Cyborg became the latest in the triangle to fire shots, posting a lengthy tirade about Rousey and White on her Facebook page on Friday, accusing them of being hypocritical and bullying.

Cyborg's lengthy letter, in full:

I find it Hypocritical of @rondarousey to complain about people in Hollywood being critical of her body image, talking about her arms or the extra weight she carries between fights.

For the past 5 years this same  Ronda Rousey and Dana White have used the media to Bully me, opening the door for other opponents to try the same tactics.

Instead of talking about my fighting skills, they would rather use the Media attention to say like I look like a man, or that I Walk like Wanderlia Silva in a dress.

These comments are not made to promote a fight between the 2 best female fighters on the planet!!

they are said to make me feel bad, and are a weak attempt to bully someone into having lower self esteem.

Whether Ronda accepts the responsibility or not, she is a role model for millions of girls around the world and they listen to what she says, often times imitating her actions.

I am glad to see she is more sensitive to the issue of Bullying now that she is experiencing it for herself in Hollywood and hopefully with this comes more maturity and growth as a woman.

I see the results of bullying online everyday, and it is a real problem, because of this I have decided to use my next fight in ‪#‎InvictaFC‬ to bring awarness to online Bullying, more news about my next opponent and fight date to come soon!

It is important that people understand their true value is not in the way that they look, how many instagram followers they have, or the amount of money that they have in their bank account.

Our true self worth and lasting legacy comes from the way we treat one another, how well we help our communities, and our ability to serve god.

Online bullying will never go away, but through education I hope we can lead people to see the consequences of their actions, and I am glad to see Ronda Rousey is starting to see this for herself.
