  3. Angela is not a good fighter ,she should have seen the punch coming , but she was too busy running her mouth. the way she treats people like she is better than every one makes her a waste of space thirsty fighter that ain't worth a damn get rid of her Dana white

    • R&T M – agreed. I was doing some research on this incident and found out a few things that happened since the it occurred…Magana has since been cut from Alliance MMA (that Brandon Vera runs) because of the immediate aftermath of the incident. Along with Cat Zingano saying that Magana did something similar to her…there's also video of Magana at a Snoop Dogg concert hours after it happened which she appeared to look okay in the video (there are varying YouTube videos out that address this). It sounds like Magana fabricated the incident a decent deal.

    • Virginia Hunt I know right , that wasn't nice what she put about cyborg and wasn't funny either . I don't think cyborg intended on jabbing her which I say was a jab I think if she went to attack her she would have destroyed her . I think she went to ask her wtf stop talking shit, and loud mouth Gumby faced looking smug thought she was Billy bad ass with all the people around and opened that bat cave she calls a mouth to talk more shit and that triggered cyborg to react with a quick smack to that self proclaimed royal bitches mouth . which I don't blame her one bit if put in the same situation I'd have the same. I think cop calling and sueing or what ever is a typical pussy bully move . if anything she should be charged with cyber stalking and bullying cyborg .

  5. Angela Magana is a mediocre Strawweight in a 4 loss streak who is friends with under achiever Rowdy Bec Rawlings who has trash talked Cris Cyborg too. I bet these two decided to harass Cris during the UFC retrait. It's the ONLY way loosers Magana and Rawlings get to be in the midia and call UFC audience attention: by grossly offending a MMA superstar such as Cristiane Cyborg. Magana is a low life looking for publicity, also making money selling the video and sueing for money.

  6. You know how many times Conor would have been sued. FOLLOW THE MONEY with Magana….Magana is a chicken when she need to back her mouth…..Magana goated Cyborg and got what she asked for. Don't look some one in the face and disrespect and expect no retaliation. …I personally believe Magana knew exactly what she was doing including lawyering up. Magana has no future in the Octagon so she goats Cyborg into a cheap argument and sue for money that she could not win in the Octagon.. ….hope Cyborg kicks her ass in court as well. MAGANA CALLS HER SELF A UFC FIGHTER MORE LIKE A SCUM BAG TRYING TO STEAL MONEY FROM A SUCCESSFUL FIGHTER like CYBORG.

    • I agree, i don't see any other reason to try and sue Cyborg, all she's doing is alienating the fan base. If she really had hopes for her mma career then she kind of just shot herself in the foot.

  8. I disagree with Max. Cyborg had every right to punch Magana, she was cyber bullying Cyborg. It's one thing to call someone out, but magana is not even in cyborg's weight class. She was out of line for posting that picture and attach cyborg's name to it.

    • Cyborg likely won't see jail time for this…since it happened, there's video of Magana at a Snoop Dogg concert hours after it happened which she appeared to look okay in the video. In addition, she's now cut from Alliance MMA (that Brandon Vera runs) because of the incident…and Cat Zingano saying that Magana did something similar to her prior to Cyborg.

    • Virginia Hunt none of those things change assault. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Cyborg is not a US citizen either. That does not bode well. Even if she is, it's still possible she'll serve some time.

    • +Arcee I understand that part on Cyborg. What I'm saying is that, based on the videos on YouTube mentioning of what's happened since, is that Magana fabricated the incident a decent deal. If, for example, you show up to a concert a few hours after someone hit you (which you press charges on the person who swung at you for something you instigated two years prior) and you don't show any visible marks, that tells the world a much different story than the one you told the world. That's why Magana is getting more heat than she anticipated.

  10. FAKE CHAMP Max is 100% wrong. Even though I think Angela is totally disgusting and I don't respect anything she does, she did not deserve to get punched. If cyborg can't control herself she has no business being in mixed martial arts. If you're a professional you handle yourself as a professional regardless of what mean word somebody might have said about you. This whole talk shit get hit philosophy is bullshit. Either you can handle yourself and wait till it gets into the Octagon or you can't. Besides cyborg walks around at like 170 pounds and Angela is like maybe a hundred twenty that's like somebody picking on your little sister. Cyborg deserves to get the maximum jail time and she should be cut from the UFC roster

    • ZenRhinoMMA Its called repercussions. Itll do everyone good to know that it exist. Or else youd get a whole generation of disrespectful, self entitled, people. Conor talks shit, but he does it to sell a fight. Afterwards he always express respect towards fighters. That Magana girl is just being mean and vicious for no apparent reason but to be mean and vicious. And if she does that, fine. But remember you get what you put out. This is basic justice in the human world. Now shes gonna press charge and sue? Thats a real bitch ass move. I have no respect for people like that, or who ever side with her antics.

    • ZenRhinoMMA

      This is the problem with the younger generation in the ufc. not all of them but the ones who got in for money and not because they were born to fight.

      All the older guys talking about this have been on cyborgs side.

      This new generation of Ufc talent that started training to get famous actually don't even have the heart of a fighter. Not all of them but some.

    • She could have either hit her back and took her ass kicking like a real fighter or walked away knowing she deserved what she got.

      pressing charges and suing?? she's in the wrong business. Her ufc record is further proof
