UFC: Dana White says Cyborg committed career suicide when she signed with Tito

UFC president, Dana White had some harsh words about former light heavyweight champion, Tito Ortiz during the Rio leg of the UFC 168 World Tour.

In the latest of a very public war of words between Dana White and Tito Ortiz, more shots have been fired from the UFC president. The two have been adversaries at an almost constant rate over the years, and it would appear that there is no reconciliation in the immediate (or distant) future.

This latest dressing down came courtesy of the Rio leg of the UFC 168 World Tour. Some notable quotes, which begin at the 30:50 mark, follow a journalist's question regarding the possibility of a future, catchweight fight between UFC women's bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey and Invicta FC featherweight champion, Cris Cyborg. Here's what El Presidente had to say:

Slim to none. She's got a dummy running her business who can't run his own business.

The last thing I would do, ever, is do anything with that knucklehead... She literally committed professional suicide.

The dumbest in the sport, literally. Literally the dumbest guy in the sport, who has destroyed his own career - she has him guide her career. It makes no sense.

The dumbest human being to ever be involved in the sport. But you know what? If you want to say that he's good at anything, he's good at keeping people talking about him.

The most irrelevant fighter on the f---ing planet. Seriously you guys - he has not won a fight in years. He can't beat anybody. He literally can't beat anybody. Cyborg would f---ing knock him out. Literally the most irrelevant guy, but still has people talking about him. So for as stupid as he is, and as irrelevant as he is, he's very good at keeping people talking about him.
