Cyborg Justino's Rep Asks Dana White To Do a Drug Test On Her

They'll do it any time, any place...
Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino's rep George Prajin recently spoke with MMAjunkie about White's accusation that Cyborg uses PEDs. Check out the highlights:
On White's accusation: "We're willing to test anywhere, anytime, anyplace to prove that she's clean. He's being a little reckless by making these statements without verifying the facts."
On what tests they're willing to do: "We'll do a blood test, urine test, a hair follicle test – whatever it takes so [White] can say she's clean and for him to stop making these comments."
On Justino: "I can guarantee you that knowing ‘Cyborg' and having worked with her for over two years now that she is not on drugs – she does not use performance-enhancing drugs. The issue that she had was regarding a weight cut. Someone in her camp suggested she use something that turned out to be a banned substance. She paid her dues, and she's back on track. A man can fail multiple drug tests and be allowed to fight back in the UFC. A woman fails one drug test, and she's labeled a drug user for the rest of her life? I don't see how that's fair."
On the long-discussed potential fight with Ronda Rousey: "They don't want this fight; we're never going to see this fight. They just keep throwing excuses instead of finding solutions."
On White's contentious relationship with co-manager Tito Ortiz: "[White's relationship to Ortiz] should not damage [Justino's] future. If Tito was told today that he had to step aside for this fight to happen, then Tito would. Being the president of a company, knowing there's a fight that everybody wants to see, you can't hold personal grudges. You need to think about your company first. Even if he locked me out of the picture, whatever. I've never had any issue with him. But whatever it takes for her to get this fight, all the parties would gladly do what they have to do to make this fight happen...Test Cris ‘Cyborg' tomorrow. If she fails, then, hey, Dana, we're sorry. Everything you had to say was justified. There no justification in saying she looks like Wanderlei Silva. That's cruel. She's a woman. Things hurt, and I don't think that fair, and especially if it's about his grudge with Tito Ortiz. Cris ‘Cyborg' has never done anything to him."
