Cris Cyborg mad at UFC double standards regarding doping after Belfort revelation

Cristiane Cyborg is angry at the Vitor Belfort scandal which allowed him to compete for the light-heavyweight title even after testing positive in a pre-fight PED exam.

Cris Cyborg is not happy. The former Strikeforce and current Invicta champ recently found out about the drug testing scandal involving the UFC and Vitor Belfort around UFC 152. And she felt wronged, to say the least, as she wrote on her Facebook. She even went as far to say that she'd do a year of Olympic testing to prove her point:

"Somebody tests positive for steroids before fighting for a UFC World Championship, but is still allowed to fight, and it takes almost 3 years before the public finds out? Open your eyes! I am clean, and am willing to prove it with a year of Olympic testing before any fight, I wonder if the current UFC 135 pound champion (Ronda Rousey) is willing to agree to the same? What do you mean, some are crucified and others are not even mentioned!"

To make sure she was not going after fellow Brazilian Belfort, Cyborg cleared up her point, stating she only used his case in order to make a stand to end double standards in the UFC.

"It has nothing to do with Vitor Belfort. His name only appeared. I am emphasizing everyone has to be punished or equal rights to all."

Cyborg is coming off a 46-second TKO win over Faith Van Duin last July. It's believed she will try and make 140 pounds for her next fight, though nothing has been settled yet.
