UFC featherweight champ Cris Cyborg successfully completes court ordered anger management course

UFC featherweight champ Cris Cyborg has completed a court ordered anger management course stemming from her altercation with former UFC strawweight Angela Magana at last year’s UFC Athlete Retreat.

Cyborg completes court ordered “impulse control program”.

Cyborg (20-1, 1 NC) had been cited for battery for punching Magana in the face and faced up to 6 months in jail. She initially pled not guilty but later accepted a deal in which she agreed to complete an “impulse control program” and stay out of trouble for 6 months.

Per TMZ Sports, an impulse control program teaches “offenders to be accountable for their actions and provides participants with positive alternatives to inappropriate and impulsive behavior.”

The news marks the end of the whole saga which begun over a year ago. Cyborg has since won the UFC featherweight title and defended it twice – against Holly Holm and Yana Kunitskaya. Meanwhile, Magana suffered a TKO loss to Amanda Cooper and was subsequently released by the UFC.

  1. She only agreed to that nonsense so as to not restrict her ability to travel, since some countries will flat out deny entry to people with a criminal record. 🙂
