The Holly Holm camp is surrounded in a bit of controversy, following last night’s UFC 219. As one of Holm’s UFC credentialed media members hit his social media and disparaged Cris Cyborg, calling her a man.
Cris Cyborg has been the butt of many jokes. Dana White and Joe Rogan are guilty of such offenses themselves. However, when the UFC grants media access as an official member of media, there is expected to be a level of professionalism, and being a sexist and disgusting pig is not on the list of acceptable behaviors.
According to UFC.com’s Damon Martin, the man in question is the team Greg Jackson official photographer.
Here’s what he said about Cyborg, “This dude is tough as hell! That being said at the press conference he said Holly was the first one to make his nose bleed! You are my hero [Holly Holm] see you back in the gym”
Here’s Damon Martin’s statement on the matter.
The staff photographer from Jackson-Wink posted this last night. Apparently he was also credentialed to the fights. Would expect a lot more from such a well respected gym. https://t.co/EYXRLE4Vs4 pic.twitter.com/YaAMuEyJOA
