Watch Joe Rogan react to Amanda Nunes KOing Cris Cyborg

'They just kicked me out of the cage': Cyborg slams 'disrespectful' treatment after UFC 232 KO loss

'They just kicked me out of the cage': Cyborg slams 'disrespectful' treatment after UFC 232 KO loss

That crown might have gone to Cyborg had she won, especially after a 13-year run of dominance but many would argue that a lack of competition puts her out of the equation.

"Cyborg doesn't want to fight me if it takes more than a year to prepare, and right now, I don't think she's gonna want it because I'm gonna ask for two years to be ready for her again", Nunes said on the UFC Unfiltered Podcast recently. "You hear a lot that 'She punches hard, she's strong, she has knockout power!' but when she landed, I moved my head because I was more scared of being hit than because the punch was strong". We also get to see how Dominick Cruz and Jon Anik reacted too - safe to say they were also surprised. I think it's not right.

Having vanquished Cyborg, the new two-division champion Nunes can look ahead to her next challenge. But OK, they did, (it's) already done, I can go (to the) media and talk to my fans, say how I appreciate them, how them coming to the cage to watch my fight, all Cyborg Nation here to watch me. It's OK, I just feel like I'm supposed to say something. This incident was cited by many, including UFC commentator Joe Rogan who conducts numerous interviews, as evidence that fighters who lose conclusively shouldn't be held accountable for the comments immediately after a fight.

The only other time "Cyborg" has been defeated in a MMA fight was back in 2005, in what was her first pro-bout.

Sisi says Egypt, Israel co-operate against militants
Interviewed by anchorman Scott Pelley , Sisi denied having political prisoners and "prisoners of opinion" in prison. CBS said on Thursday that it had rejected Egypt's demands and will air the interview on 6 January.

The 33-year-old refused to comment on whether the UFC's treatment of her last weekend would affect her decision on her fighting future, instead using the media opportunity to thank her supporters.

Cyborg, who has now been a champion in the UFC, Invicta and Strikeforce, added that she wanted to explain to the audience how much they meant to her and that she wants to be a "champion in people's hearts". But I'm a human being, I have my mistakes, I have a lot of things like everybody here, and I showed them it doesn't matter you gonna fall, you gonna stand up on your feet and get in there. You just have to believe and have faith.

"And who I am, (I was a) champion before, but I want to be champion in people's hearts and I'm gonna continue doing this anywhere I'm going". When you stand up on your feet after you fall, you are the champion. "I'm mad because you know how to f-ing box", Shields told Cyborg in the locker room.

"Yeah I'm gonna defend my belt, my original belt", Nunes concluded. For sure I have something to learn today.
