UFC’s women know how to make the most out of their trash talk, as Julianna Pena demonstrated in a rant against former top dog Ronda Rousey.
The star fighter threw some haymakers in Rousey’s direction, saying, “No one cares about [her] and her fat arms anymore,” via TMZ Sports. “She’s like the emperor in no clothes,” Pena added … “She’s broken a little bit.”
Pena was responding to a question asked by TMZ about UFC’s Amanda Nunes saying she’d fight her if Rousey wasn’t available. She doesn’t think Rousey will fight this year, despite continual whispers that it will eventually happen. “”I’ll believe it when I see it,” she said.
Nobody would argue Rousey is “broken a little bit” as it pertains to her UFC career since getting KO’d by Holly Holm last November. She still has yet to step foot into the Octogon in any competitive capacity. And while the former queen of the hill has been on hiatus, her peers have been busy trashing her verbally.
Pena is only the latest in a long line of Rousey’s potential future opponents to take her to task in the media. Miesha Tate had some choice words to use back in May (more on that here) and others have done the same.
Once considered the most dangerous fighter in the UFC, male or female, Rousey has her work cut out for her to get back to the top of the mountain, if she still desires to get there to begin win. Until then, she’ll continue to be the object of ridicule by those who revel in her downfall.
