Cris Cyborg and Megan Anderson are beefing on Twitter, with the champ making accusations about convenience marriages and even going so far as tagging in US Immigration.

UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg and newest foe Megan Anderson have been beefing on Twitter for months now, but early this morning, things took a more serious tone when whomever runs Cyborg’s account (be it Cris or her boyfriend, Ray Elbe) took on unofficial matchmaking duties.

Anderson replied directly to Ray Elbe—cyborg’s boyfriend who is widely known to run her Twitter account—that they should be dealing directly with the UFC.

From there, things took an ugly turn when Cyborg’s account accused Anderson of working in the United States illegally and setting up a convenience marriage to be able to remain in America. Oh yeah, they also tagged in the official account for US Immigration.

Anderson’s retort was mild by comparison, only stating that Cyborg/Elbe were misinformed and the Twitter activity coming from them was unbecoming of a champion.

Cyborg has been trying her hand at social media warfare for the last few years, starting with longtime rival Ronda Rousey, whom she lit up frequently on Twitter. Even perennial nice girl Holly Holm got a taste of acid from the champion in the lead-up to their UFC 219 contest.

A fight between the champ and Anderson—who hasn’t fought since January 2017—was officially scheduled UFC 214, but Anderson pulled out for personal reasons. In recent weeks, it has been rumored, although unconfirmed, that the UFC was seeking to book the two for the upcoming UFC 221 card. Since Team Cyborg is angling for a fight with Anderson, Amanda Nunes, or basically whomever will agree to meet in the center of the Octagon, the social media fires are being stoked around the clock. Hopefully, Anderson gets all her ducks in a row so we can finally get this contest.
