Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight champion, Cristiane Justino, found herself in trouble with law enforcement last year when the promotion held a special fighters retreat in Las Vegas, Nevada (watch the video here).

That’s where “Cyborg” was able to confront the since-deposed Angela Magana, after “Your Majesty” tried to clown the 145-pound bruiser on social media. Words were exchanged and Justino sent a little message that involved Brazilian hands of justice (watch it).

While most fighters sided with Justino, including this former champion, Magana pulled a Colby Covington and ran to the police with the intention of pressing charges. “Cyborg” was slapped with battery, but that appears to have been dropped after completing anger management courses, according to her official website.

Justino (20-1, 1 NC), undefeated for over a decade, recently crushed featherweight newcomer Yana Kunitskaya at the UFC 222 pay-per-view (PPV) event back in March and is currently awaiting her next assignment.
