Video has emerged of Brazilian MMA competitor Cris "Cyborg" Justino punching fellow fighter Angela Magana at a UFC athlete retreat in Las Vegas over the weekend. Watch the altercation above.
The feud began when Magana made fun of Cyborg on Twitter using a photo of her taken while she was visiting sick children at a hospital. MMA Fighting has further details:
Sources said Cyborg was upset in particular about a Magana tweet making fun of Cyborg’s looks while Cyborg was visiting cancer patients at a hospital in Brazil. Cyborg’s father is battling cancer and she went to the hospital dressed as a superhero to visit the ill kids.
While many Twitter users condemned Magana and said she deserved to get hit, Cyborg was still cited for battery by the police. Both fighters will have to appear in court.
As the story gains more traction, Magana has taken to Twitter to accuse Cyborg of "roid rage" and call for her to be to be banned permanently from organized fighting contests.
We'll have to see what the future holds for Cyborg, who is currently serving a one-year ban in the UFC after testing positive for a banned substance. But as of right now, it doesn't look good.
