UFC commentator Joe Rogan and his friend Tony Hinchcliffe may be comedians, but Cris Cyborg isn't laughing.

Flying home Monday after calling the fights at UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia, Rogan was joined by UFC president Dana White and Hinchcliffe for an impromptu podcast.

With talk of the MMA world largely revolving around the shocking upset loss of former UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, the discussion eventually made its way to her rivals.

Cracking a joke at Cyborg's expense, Hinchcliffe teased that the Brazilian is the only fighter who makes weight by "cutting her d*ck off." Rogan laughed and egged him on while White remained silent.

Well, Cyborg would now like a word.

This isn't the first time Cyborg has heard this sort of talk. In 2014, White joked that Cyborg almost looked like former UFC and PRIDE veteran Wanderlei Silva "in a dress."

"I said, when I saw [Cyborg] at the MMA Awards, she looked like Wanderlei Silva in a dress and heels," said White. "And she did, did she not? Who wants to dispute that she didn't look like Wanderlei?

"She was walking up the stairs, jacked up on steroids beyond belief and looked like Wanderlei Silva in a dress and heels."
