Combat sports veteran and women’s MMA all-time great Cris Cyborg has joined a chorus of other fighters condemning Dana White’s recent actions.

The UFC president Dana White was caught on video on New Year’s Eve striking his wife, Anne.

Some Twitter users have attempted to reason with the situation trying to say that Anne struck him first. MMA fighter Cris Cyborg responded with conviction, she said:

“I watched the video and saw a larger man grab his wife by the arm aggressively and pull her into his personal space. That was the fist physical aggression in the video.”
