Cris “Cyborg” Justino was cited for battery after punching UFC Straw-weight fighter Angela Magana in the face at the UFC fighter retreat in Las Vegas this past weekend.
According to the Las Vegas Metro Police narrative, Magana says Cyborg punched the left side of her face after the two fighters got into a verbal argument over comments that were made on social media. Police say they reviewed surveillance video that showed Cyborg throwing a punch, hitting Magana in the face once before witnesses then jumped in to break up the fight.
Magana, transported herself to the hospital where she was treated for an “acute head injury, cervical strain, and laceration of the lip.” She then returned to her hotel room and called the cops.
Cops say they also spoke with UFC fighter Bec Rawlings … who also verified Angela’s story.
Police have also made contact with Cyborg, but she did not want to give her side of the story. She was cited for battery and will have to appear in court.
Since the incident, Magana has gone on a Twitter rampage against Cyborg … “I was the victim of roid rage today. Hope it was worth your job. Sue happy lawyers hitting me up left and right now #Cyborg”
