Where to begin…

I want to first say, I knew nothing of Julianna Pena and the way she fights except for what I saw during the elimination fights. I knew she had been armbarred by Sarah Moras. I knew she was a suck-up trying to play both sides. She will tell you that she told Ronda Rousey that she wanted to be picked by her before she knew Miesha Tate was going to be there. I hope at least that the people in the Queen’s Army are smart enough to put together that we had no contact with the coaches until after we saw both of them there when they called us in for Dana White’s epic speech that first day. She knew Miesha was a coach before she tried to convince Ronda she wanted to be picked. Another thing I like about Ronda: she’s too smart for that. She didn’t fall for it. But that’s Ronda. It spoke to me of both her and Juliana’s character from the get-go.

Training for a fight on TUF is a strange animal. You can’t really game-plan based on your opponent. It could be anyone at any time. So instead of training things in your game based on weaknesses your opponent might have, you just train your strengths. So that’s what I did. I worked a lot one on one with the coaches, and that’s kind of how it went. The rest of the team did a team practice. Whoever had a fight got to work with a coach one on one. And being the first one that got to work with the coaches in this way, I have to say, I loved working with them from the start.

The first day of practice would be a dream for many hardcore fans of WMMA: Ronda and I just rolling. I had mentioned earlier how I was worried about Ronda and I both having strong personalities. We could very well clash. And both of us being proud people, both of us probably knowing that many in the WMMA community were begging for us to fight, I had some concern about training together getting overly competitive. Maybe she would want to show me exactly who she was, which I would definitely try to not let her get away with. But, as it turns out, Ronda is as secure with herself as I am. Zero ego. We rolled, we sparred, we trained. No one-upping, no pissing contest. Training. Two of the best females in the world just training together. It was awesome. And spoke again of her character to me.

Many out there believe I shouldn’t have had to do this show. That the UFC should already have signed me. That, in some ways (and I hope my Team Rousey family understands I mean no disrespect in saying this—love you guys), I was better than all this. And in some ways, Ronda treated me as such, like a comrade and not a “student.” It was a relief. She never once made me feel like she thought she was better than me, but at the same time, getting across that she very much believes she will kick my ass when we meet in the cage one day.

I think it could go without saying, but I don’t like Julianna. Many of the girls in the elimination fights knew her and didn’t like her. I didn’t know her, so I generally gave her the benefit of the doubt. She did not win me over. She tries too hard to get people to like her, exploits herself in all the wrong ways, and too easily turns her back on her friends. I don’t know how she will come across as the season goes on, but like I said, I believe at least the Queen’s Army won’t be blinded. All the others, fuck ‘em. All that being said, one other thing about Juliana: the girl doesn’t stop. She keeps scrapping.

I was never, at any point in the week leading up to the fight, ever nervous. Not even a little. Technique, skill set, all of it—she had nothing for me. As it turns out, in retrospect, one of the things that many might believe to be an advantage was probably my biggest disadvantage going into this fight. I couldn’t get up for the fight.

I can’t explain to you the odd feeling it is to walk out to fight in the UFC gym. There is no one there but the 14 people on the show and a smattering of special guests that Dana or the UFC invited in to watch. There is no music, no uproarious cheering, no screaming voices, no one yelling or chanting…it was a glorified sparring session to me. I have fought for some of the biggest shows and venues that have been available to women. I have been on network television, pay-per-views and streamed events. I have fought the biggest names that my division has to offer. I never feel pressure at those things; I feel energized. So it’s hard when I am stepping into a cage that I train in twice a day, in a small warehouse that I train in twice a day, and think of it as the most important fight I have had to date. I mean, I knew in my head that it was, but my body, my heart…this was me showing up in the gym to spar. And you know what happened? I completely kicked her ass the first round. Period. But then, when she came out the second and fought for her life, I did not.

You know how when you go to the gym and spar, there’s always that guy? Maybe he’s a new guy, maybe he’s just that guy that only has two speeds, but he always ends up going way too hard. You know him. Every gym has him. Maybe if you were in 100 percent fight mode, you would whoop his ass. But it’s just sparring, and you know this. That is the same feeling I had when Julianna came out round two. Never felt this way before. She fought for her life, and I just wanted to hold her down and put my finger on her mouth and whisper, “Shhhhhh…” I knew she was spazzing and fighting balls out. So I checked out. “Shit. I will just get her next round.” And it was too late…

Julianna showed up that day and fought for her life. I didn’t. Bottom line. Like her or not, she fought for her life at a time when I felt she didn’t even deserve to be in the cage with me. I still to this day say 99 out of 100 times, I win this fight. She just happened to do whatever it took to have her 1/100 happen on that day. The most frustrating part of all of this being that all the new fans of WMMA and of the QoS will only hate because I was so confident going into this fight, it comes off as arrogant. Julianna Pena is not better than the Queen of Spades. But many will believe it after this…foolish mortals.

I was devastated. Over 11 years of work. Of fighting for gas money. And here it is, what I finally deserve. And I couldn’t get up??? WTF? It’s over. My shot. I still say I was the best female in that house. And for whatever reason, I didn’t fight like it. Watch it again, people. I had zero urgency. And I would pay for that by losing to arguably the girl with the least amount of technique in the house. If there’s one thing that all of you in the Queen’s Army should take from this, it’s how far the need to fight for your life can take you. And nothing can really make you feel better during a time like this. Of course, there’s a long season left. And anything can happen, and I should stay ready…but none of that helps the way you feel right then after the fight in the locker room.

So Ronda took me out of the locker room and into the lobby of the gym. They showed a small part of our conversation, but they didn’t show the parts that were the most important to me. She said, “Shayna, this isn’t the only way to get what you want, it’s just one way. And, honestly, for you, it isn’t even the best way.” She told me that the reason I was her No. 1 pick wasn’t just because she believed I would win, but because I was her biggest threat on the show, and it’s wise to keep me close. I looked straight at her and said, “You will see me across the cage from you.” She replied, “I know I will,” with 100 percent belief, “…..and I will beat the shit out of you.” We laughed. It was huge that as a potential rival for her belt one day, she was completely understanding. In this sport, more than any other sport, the best fighter does not always win. That’s the simple truth. And it’s why so many love this sport.

I had no idea Ronda took it so hard when I lost until I watched the show. Manny Gamburyan told me every day until the end of the season that I broke all their hearts that day. But to see Ronda so bothered, and then shouldering the responsibility…in the end, the part that sucks the most was disappointing all of them. They truly believed in me. And why shouldn’t they? I am one of the best in the world, the contract gift-wrapped for me. And I just let someone grab it. Disappointing the coaches is something I wish didn’t happen. Their confidence in me…it’s just a big ouch.

So, the fight picks happened. Team Tate picking off our injured guy, like expected. But, in what is the act that sealed my loyalty to Ronda, she walked up to Miesha and said what she did about how she was going to beat her up even more for celebrating in my loss. Now, Miesha and I have always been friendly. And whether she meant it as offense towards me or not, Ronda took it that way. For Ronda to have my back like that…I dunno. Loyalty is something that has become one of the most important things in the measure of a human in my eyes. The fact that I had just let her down, she knows I am gunning for her belt one day…but she still had my back. It spoke volumes to me.

Ronda came back to the locker room and said to me, “There’s a difference between a friendly acquaintance and a friend,” and if you look back on June 6 on her Twitter, she actually tweeted this.

I didn’t understand it at the time, but would very much come to understand it as the show progressed. Even if you celebrate your friend winning, if that’s truly a friend on the other side of the cage, you still share tears in their loss. I’m not a crier. I didn’t get it. Some people are different. And like I said, I’ve never had a problem with Miesha. I don’t think she meant it as an offense when I lost. But I know that Ronda shared tears with me. And she had my back. And I know she still believes in me. And I will go on forever to say that the QoS and the Queen’s Army will forever be a part of Armbar Nation, until the day when we face each other on the battlefield.

  • mma fan

    Shayna made a huge rookie mistake. And that was running her mouth. I used to be a fan till I heard how much crap came out of her mouth. Saying someone doesn’t deserve to breath the same air is beyond playing the game of words. I think she should have blacked out like in inficta fc. I still will root for Shayna because she can fight. But I hope she grows up and learns from this

    • Farabundo Martí‎

      Well, it seems like she learned nothing. She comes as an arrogant sore loser. Not a fan.

      • whit thomasson

        Agreed, she ran her mouth and acted like an absolute bitch, I am sick of Rhonda BS attitude too! I used to be a fan, but obviously has issues with controlling her emotions. She even cried about the next matchup Miesha chose. Enough whining or it is going to be a long season to put up with the BS tough hardass cryi baby attitude she has so far.to get mad a a coach celebrating with the winner of a fight is expected. Deal with it!

        • Meme

          Yea, I used to be a fan of Rousey too, but she just seems crazy. Obviously Tate will be happy for her team-mate! I am already sick of Rhonda’s psychotic attitude and it’s just episode 2.

          • KingKong

            Shut the fuck idiot…No one wants to hear your shit 5 years after the fact.

    • Kevin

      Totally agree with you mma fan. She should have kept her mouth shut and just fought her fight. I was somewhat disappointed with Rhonda to with the way she handled her part.

    • gnarkip

      That’s what happens when you walk into the TUF with a chip on your shoulder about how you’ve been passed over so many times. Her entitled attitude made her cocky and sloppy and she got handled by Julianna. You don’t walk into the ring and expect it to happen just because you’ve been doing it __ amount of years. You still have to MAKE it happen.

      She got outstruck by her opponent and took her sweet fucking time to get comfortable any time she gained top position. She was mediocre and never looked “pro” at any point during her fight. Not impressed, and almost all of the other girls’ skills look much sharper.

    • Bill Hughes

      I dont get the fight was close, i don’t believe you’re 3 times better then her. You will ok Just like Ronda said, some people won the whole shows and did nothing and many people many, many, people have gone on and become huge stars in UFC. you can’t go by who is going to win TUF alone.. you career is far form over in UFC. Frankly i can;t stop watching you are very attractive. Don’t say you’re so much better stop saying because you all earned you place to be there, you are all worthy to fighters. She may win the whole show that makes you second. Nobody in TUF who won the show just ended up in UFC. Remember that the fans want to see many people they saw on TUF and same with Dana White. It better to be humble beause when you say yoru the greatest you stop working on getting better.

    Shayna, you lost, your standup stinks, your cardio is terrible. Give the girl some credit, the sport has passed you by. You just look stupid saying how good your are. You have 8 losses and your wins are from days gone by when most women had barely any training at all.

    • Mark

      If the sport has passed Shayna by, why did she tool Sara McMann and almost knock her out just a year ago? Search for that fight some time. McMann looked far worse on the feet and about the same on the ground. Yet Sara is supposedly a top contender in the UFC, while Shayna is stuck on the outside looking in. Absolutely bogus.

      The UFC did the same thing to Leslie Smith. She’s another top 135er that got passed over so they could pad the womens records with undersized opponents (Gaff, Sexton, Andrade). Talk about gimme fights. The ironic thing is that Smith nearly beat Kaufman this year, yet it’s actually argued by some that she’s not good enough to be signed. But then the UFC went and signed Jessica Eye to fight Kaufman. She hasn’t even fought or beaten a bantamweight before in her entire career. Got to love that UFC politics.

      • Lucas McCain

        Hey! Shayna nearly beat McMann, Smith nearly beat Kaufman… Nearly… Nearly…

        • Mark

          Shayna Baszler did actually beat Alexis Davis. Want to remind me who Eye, Gaff, Andrade, or Sexton beat to get signed by the UFC? Certainly not anybody in the weight class. They were brought in solely to lose and pad the top contenders records. So it’s funny to see people hyping up UFC fighters like McMann. Who’s best legitimate win up to this point is a gatekeeper like Tonya Evinger.

          • BigMullah

            So Rhonda got padded as well huh?

          • Mark

            Ronda has never fought any flyweights. Can’t say the same for Tate, McMann, Kaufman, Davis, etc.

          • MrPotato

            Ronda got the tittle without any fight talk about justice there.

          • wjd

            Couldn’t agree with you more. An organization like the UFC should at least have the top ten ranked 135 pound women, but they don’t. They need weaker opponents to make people like tate, whose only win over an impressive bantamweight was Marloes coenan (or however you spell it).Shayna’s record looks a lot better when you see how many of her losses are to extremely talented fighters. She’s had more tough opponents then many if not most of the UFCs women fighters. I’m inclined to reserve judgment about what Shayna claims here, especially after seeing how sloppy Julianna was in her fight to get into the house. Shayna deserves another shot at the UFC, I hope she’s at the finale.

            That said, I disagree about Eye. She’s an amazing fighter and she beat sarah kaufman (if only thanks to the fact that UFC fights are scored round-by-round rather then on overall performance)

      • Dana FN White

        Shayna the Queen of crap brags about just fighting LaRosa, LaRosa lost in the prelims.

        Shayna likes to think she is as good as Rousey, while Ronda is also nuts she at least has the Judo to beat just about everybody. Shayna hasterrible boxing and a BJJ brown belt after 11 years training.

        • Kendrick Friday

          Yo mahn. Yous just a honky a$$ whiteboy. Shayna be da best ever and fuck you piece of shit.

        • john fields

          Shayna lost to very hungry fighter who had the heart and cardio to beat her…anything can happen in MMA. I believe Dana gave these women vets a chance because when they were at the top of their game they didnt get recognition and $$$ like the fighters today…they pionereered womens MMA and they deserve some spotlight in my opinion…Tara lost in pre-lims but she went about ten years as the #1 ranked pound per pound female fighter…so shes not in her prime…shes still Tara Fuckin Larosa…lol..and her and Shayna fought each other in their primes.

      • Dana FN White

        She “nearly” beat a wrestler until she got floored, got it!

        • Mark

          Watch the Baszler/McMann fight on YT. The only one who got floored was the overhyped McMann.

          • JEFF

            The point is that McMann still pulled off the win. Some fighters are slow getting out the gate. Rory MacDonald. Amazing fighter and one of my favorite dominated Carlos Condit (another one of my favorite) for 2 and 1/2 rounds till Condit turned up the pressure and pulled off the upset.

      • Mike

        Leslie Smith dropped down to 125, actually.

        • Mark

          Smith only dropped down recently to 125 after the UFC snubbed her. She knew she had no real options in Invicta at 135. The division is incredibly thin, and several of the women are friends and teammates. She’s never going to fight D’Alelio or Nakamoto at 135, so she dropped down to make some noise at flyweight. The UFC should have signed her after her fight with Kaufman. Leslie always brings it in fights, and would have been far more competitive than someone like Gaff or Andrade (who have no business at bantamweight).

      • darkangel

        Shayna was past up by the UFC for the same reason she lost to much mouth and not enogh cardio. yes she may have won the first round but this was a two round fight and she was gased out by the second round. I have much respect for Pena for the way she whooooop that butt. I am slowly starting to loose respect for Rhonda and her childish ways she really need to grow up. I hope Tate do the same thing to her when they fight, “whoooop her A**

        • The1

          We know you’re trying hard to look intelligent, but you fail to realize that Shayna is now one of the most well known fighters in MMA because of her TUF appearance…UFC can’t wait to get her into the cage to put haters in seats…She probably is signing the contract now ;)

          • Blacktooth Grin

            Hear that from Dana White, did you?

          • The1

            No, from BJ Penn when I ran into him at the airport…
            Shayna=Female Tito=Your fat ass paying for the show to see her lose because she threatens your manhood…

      • Blacktooth Grin

        Does that say how good Shayna is or how bad McMann was? The truth is, Shayna has no standing game, she was gasping for breath by mid second round of her UFC fight, the girl has poor cardio and poor conditioning. There’s a reason McMann didn’t want the fight with Rousey, she came right out and said that she wasn’t ready and needs more training.

        Shayna isn’t terrible, but she’s not great either.

        • Mark

          I’ve always thought McMann was a bit overrated. Yet people talk about her like she’s beaten a ton of contenders. If you minus her controversial win over Baszler, her best victory is Tonya Evinger. Who is nothing but a career gatekeeper.

      • JEFF

        The UFC is not signing women who are there to “pad” records. Dana is signing YOUNG talent. He is trying to BUILD a new womens division. If he signs a bunch of fighters who have been fighting for years (even if they were at the top of their respective division) They are going to fade soon and what then??? If Dana builds stars by planting seeds to ensure that they will be there for YEARS to grow up and bare fruit. Baszler and LaRosa while they are competent, though egotistical in Baszler’s case, fighters. Are getting close to being “past their primes”. To sign them and try to build their profiles cost money. And the UFC will not recoup that money in time before they retire. That most likely is a large part of the reason why Dana has not signed them and other WMMA veterans.

        • Mark

          Wrong. This isn’t about age. Rosi Sexton is 36 years old (three years older than Baszler). She has also won nothing at bantamweight, and will either retire or go back to 125 after she’s cut. There was no reason to sign her other than to pad a contenders record.

          BTW, Leslie Smith is also younger than Sexton (as well as McMann and Zingano). Unlike all these natural 125ers that have been signed, she is actually competitive at bantamweight. Smith has already finished Raquel Pennington, and nearly beat Sarah Kaufman earlier this year. You think Eye or Andrade could pull that off? Very unlikely. They would just get dominated by their much bigger opponents.

          • Tapyomomma

            Seriously? Your still trolling this after like a week later?!!!
            …and you are wrong about Jessica Eye. Very wrong, but you don’t know it yet. Pay attention and learn…

          • Mark

            Stating facts is now trolling? I guess you prefer logical comments like Baszler sucks and Pena is the best? Although I don’t know how beating up a supposed washed up bum like Baszler proves that.

            We’ll see about Eye. I predict she does nothing at 135 and runs back to flyweight in a year.

      • JEFF

        It may come across as such. However, I see why the UFC has not signed such veterans as Baszler and LaRosa. Dana is trying to build a division. It is safe to say that Baszler and LaRosa are close, if not getting close to the down end of their primes. To build a division it cost money. You have to invest in NEW up and coming fighters. They are in a way “planting seeds” and it will take YEARS before That tree starts bearing fruit. Look at the flyweight division. They’ve been placed on the free cards in order to build their following. Its only been after DJ’s finish in the last bout that people have FINALLY started to notice the FLW division. It is the same with the WM division. While Rousey is a competent advocate for the building of the UFC’s WMMA division. Dana needs to ALSO build other stars. If he signs fighters that are at their peak going down. by the time they are notice it could be close to the end, if not THE END of their careers. There will be no time for the UFC to recoup on their investments. That is why they signed a plethora of young talent to build their division and help to create NEW stars. It will also be a cheaper investment too. The women at the TOP of their careers would with out a doubt, ask for their worth. Which will be pretty high given the level at which they are in their careers. While young talent, will sign at a cheaper salary. It would be cheaper to build new talents. And when you add in the fact that you would have a longer time to recoup on your investment. The math is clear. They say MMA Math doesn’t work. But this type of MMA Math is a no brainer.

        • Mark

          Like I said above, Sexton isn’t young talent. And McMann and Zingano are actually older than Baszler and Smith. So this age excuse doesn’t fly for me. Nor does talk about building the division for the long term. Eye, Andrade, Sexton, etc have absolutely no future at 135. You’ll see this for yourself when the UFC cuts them within the next year and they all go back to 125.

          • Mark

            Correction: McMann and Zingano are both older than Smith. Baszler is just 1-2 years older than them.

    • phil shiffley

      amen brother

    • Kid CUdi

      This. SOOOOO true. Shayna talked like she was the second coming of Anderson Silva and then looked mediocre. She was super arrogant with all of her “She doesn’t belong in the cage with me” and “I’m 3 times the fighter she is” and then to read this arrogant, excuse filled rant……so lame. I hope Shayna never makes it to the UFC, she’s not a great fighter and she has a massively overinflated opinion of herself….

  • Rafael

    Shayna, be humble. Your post is atrocious. You fought a smaller and less experienced fighter, and you lost. Period.

    You didn’t destroy Julianna in the first round. Her initial flurry had you dazed. She was hurting you from the bottom. She g’n’ped you. Round 2 was a 10-8, until you tapped.

    You came out looking HORRIBLE, not only as a fighter, but, especially, as a person. Arrogant, cocky. And your post is not helping you.

    Your post can be summed up in two words: No heart. Something that Julianna showed.

    I was a fan. Now, you lost me.

    As to Julianna, I didn’t know her either. But, now, she got a fan.

    • Underdog

      Exactly. She comes off as a sore loser, no heart, self entitled prima dona.

    • raptor

      Exactly! No heart! She all but admitted it in this delusional post. “She only beat me because I couldn’t get up for the fight wah wah wah wah!” So… that attitude makes you one of the best in the world? Please.

        Yet Dana made the mentally weak person as the coach on the show. Remember that Miesha fought the same way against Julie Kedzie, and was lucky to get out with a win. She was going to quit MMA after that fight and only came back because the UFC signed Ronda.

        • smh

          what you seem to miss, is that miesha won that fight, she showed heart by pulling out a FINISH. not GETTING finished

          • Mark

            Barely. Miesha was so unimpressive, she was embarrassed afterwards. Then she gets finished by Cat and somehow thinks she deserves a title shot? Give me a break. She’s lucky that Ronda hates her, because that’s the only reason she got the gift from Dana.

        • raptor

          When did I ever mention Tate…?

          • Mark

            You said Dana doesn’t like fighters with no heart. Yet he gave a title shot to a woman who has looked mediocre in her last 4 fights. Miesha didn’t even show up for the Kedzie fight (her only recent win), and was lucky to come out with the victory.

        • JEFF

          For the last time NO ONE IS DEFENDING MEISHA & ACTIONS & ANTICS!!! We are disputing Shayna’s attitude on the show and what she wrote in this blog. It’s pretty evident that the UFC signed Meisha as well partly for her skills as an MMA fighter. But mostly based upon her name and her rival w/ Rhonda Rousey. I find no fault w/ Meisha signing for that reason. If the top MMA promotion is willing to sign me for a significant amount of money I would grasp at the opportunity as well. It may very well be that it was her dream along w/ a plethora amount of other females to one day fight in the octagon. We can not blame her for wanting to do so. Shayna may be a veteran and have all these accolades as a fighter. BUT she is only known amongst hardcore fans of WMMA. She had an opportunity to show her skills as a fighter, gain recognition amongst fans and gain a plethora of fighters. What people saw was a fighter who “claimed” she was this big fighter. Who couldn’t back up her talk and “bring it” in the fight. Who barely edged out coming on top in the 1st round. Who also got dominated in the 2nd round by a greener lesser experienced fighter. Who gave up and tapped b/c (as she explained here in this blog) “she couldn’t get up”. Which basically means she had no heart. That is what we see from her as a fighter. As for her attitude. We saw an arrogant experienced fighter talk A BOAT LOAD of shit. Who acted like a fool in putting a card in her opponents shirt SMH. Who insulted and showed no respect toward her opponent. Who couldn’t back up her trash talk and lost. And despite losing, STILL continued to have a bad attitude, made excuses, insulted and was maladroitly talking about Julianna in an unacceptable manner. Shayna squandered her shot. She lost the chance to get into the UFC by winning the tournament (even though she was one of the Women, if not the ONLY woman) who had the best odds of winning based upon her skill. In the aftermath of losing her fight by not having any heart and tapping out in the 2nd round. Shayna had the chance to garner fans based upon her personality and likability. And due to her unceremonious rant in her blog, she failed to get fans in that manner either. Though it is not fear and needs to be changed, female fighters are usually signed by the UFC by having 2 criteria’s. In addition to being a formidable fighter. She must also have sex appeal (which she does not). Or she must have likability (which she does not). If a female does not have those criteria’a, she would need to be an AMAZING fighter. Now while Shayna say’s (and has proved in hardcore WMMA fans) that she is one of the best female fighters. She did not fight like one inside the TUF house. Her arrogance and ignorance of under estimating an opponent became her downfall. I believe you when you say that Shayna is a veteran WMMA fighter. But her entire TUF experience has been one big fiasco. Talking shit. Having no heart. Unceremonious in defeat. Unacceptable, unwarranted and undeserved bravado. These are the reasons why the fans don’t like and why the fans won’t watch Shayna. This is what the UFC witnesses and this is why Shayna may not be signed.

    • BigMullah

      Shayna only got points for positioning, but no damage to Julianna. Like the previous TUF it’s about the individual fighter’s heart. Shayna’s got none! I was hoping for a knock out or tap from GnP, but to submit a ground specialist? Wow!

  • yeahbuddy

    I’m so proud of Julianna. That chick has raw talent and potential, I can definitely see her being a household name in MMA not long from now.

  • bobby booshay

    The Queen of Sh*t got pounded on and tapped out by a n00b. So much for eleven years of training and she still calls herself one of the “best females in the world”. Get over yourself…you lost in the FIRST fight to an inexperienced fighter. Time for plan B.

    • Mark

      Tate is 1-2 in her last 2 fights. She was finished brutally in both of those losses, and looked terrible in that lone win against Kedzie. The latter nearly finished Miesha as well despite being just a career gatekeeper. Yet Miesha was signed and sold as this top contender who deserves to fight for the belt. By your logic, she’s not one of the best either and has no business being in the UFC.

      • Mark

        Correction. That comment should say that Tate is 1-2 in her last 3 fights.

        • Underdog

          its womens mma…whatd you expect?

          • Mark

            So how is Shayna not worthy of being in the UFC because of one poor performance? Especially when Tate has looked awful in her last 4 fights? It’s sad when you realize that Miesha’s biggest accomplishment recently is barely beating a weakened and dehydrated Coenen (who has never performed well at 135). Then Tate gets armbarred in 4 minutes, looks like the living dead against Kedzie, and TKO’d by Zingano. If Ronda finishes her again in the 1st this Dec, that will 5 mediocre fights in a row.

            Meanwhile you have Baszler unsigned. She arguably beat one of the supposed UFC best in McMann last year. And Leslie Smith is also unsigned. This is the same woman who dropped Kaufmann and lost a controversial decision to her recently. Tell me how they aren’t deserving but undersized natural 125ers like Gaff, Sexton, and Andrade are.

      • Just Bleed

        No one cares about Shayna. Not even a comparison. Meisha was winning both fights before losing. She was destroying Rousey on the feet and will more than likely keep it standing in the rematch to KTFO her sourpuss ass. She was also up two rounds to none against Cat and Zingano just showed great heart and fire to come back to get the finish, which she needed. No hate for Cat at all. Shayna got her shit pushed in, Rousey will get KTFO by Tate in rematch and all will be right in the universe again.

        • Philli-b

          U a crakerazz dat no no shitz or u be trippin on da rockz I be slingin

        • Mark

          Miesha is so overrated it’s not funny. Used as a punching bag by Kaufman. Gets her arm dislocated in four minutes against Rousey. Almost gets KOd multiple times by a gatekeeper in Julie Kedzie. Actually gets KOd by Kaitlin Young. Barely beats the awful Jan Finney early in the career. Gets a contender match that she doesn’t even deserve, and blows it by getting TKO’d by Cat. After Ronda finishes her again, she’ll be back to the undercard where she belongs.

          • Mark

            BTW, the only reason she won the title is because she fought a woman who had no business at 135. Everyone knows that Marloes looked like garbage at bantamweight. But even with Marloes severely weakened by dehydration, Miesha still looked unimpressive and barely beat her. She will never hold the UFC title. Ronda could retire next year, and Miesha still won’t be good enough to beat Zingano, Kaufman, Davis, or McMann.

          • Mark

            One more thing to add. Ronda said a month ago that Miesha was more worried about her makeup than coaching her fighters. A lot of people said she was just bitter and lying. According to a recent interview with Cody Bollinger, it’s actually true. Got to love the power of editing. Miesha did nothing but show up and look good for the cameras.

            His comments…

            Cody Bollinger: Yeah, that’s something that doesn’t ever happen (with TUF). You know, I could tell from Ronda’s team that Ronda gave her all. She didn’t care that she’d be fighting these people. As far as Miesha and Caraway, they brought in top notch coaches—guys like Master Tong, Ricky Lundell, top guys—but as far as Miesha and Caraway, they taught a little bit, but they mostly kept to themselves. Their coaches handled most everything; and they did their own thing.

            VigilanteMMA: Were you bothered by that?

            Cody Bollinger: I couldn’t have been happier with Team Tate because of the coaches they brought in, but as far as Miesha really coaching, the first day she taught a couple things and not too much (after). She was kind of standoffish. They may not show that, but that’s one thing I really noticed. I only got to train with Bryan Caraway like once while I was there.

          • Frodo

            Why are so adament about showing your hate for Tate on another fighters blog? Does she really threaten your (lack of) manhood that much? Did she ignore your FB friend request?
            This blog was not about Tate. Take your trolling and whinning to the appropriate place.

          • Mark

            Cut the double standards. You don’t care if Rousey gets blasted on here. So don’t act all high and mighty when someone dares to question the current media darling in Tate. People will eventually see through the current editing as more fighters speak out. Josh Hill has come out recently and said he would have been rooting for Baszler over Pena if he knew then what he knows now. He said viewers will have to keep watching to see why. Looks like Miesha and her little sidekick take a turn for the worse in the future.

      • JEFF

        I read above where you wrote that Meisha was hurt, being beaten and she ended up winning……… You see that last word WIN… She ended up WINNING the fight. That means she dug deep. Showed heart and WON the fight. As for her two losses. I only saw the Zingano fight. Though she lost. Meisha NEVER up and quit. She was fighting till the last minute up until the ref stopped the fight. Baszler quit. She did NOT show heart and was tapped out by an up and coming fighter. ALL her experience and bravado meant NOTHING. That is the point Everyone on this forum is trying to convey. Had Baszlers heart been as big as her EGO maybe she could have pulled off a win. Another thing about Meisha that shows she has more heart that Shayna. Baszler tapped… Meisha got her arm broke. See the difference???

        • Mark

          Miesha got her elbow dislocated by Ronda AND tapped. And this was after bragging beforehand that Ronda wouldn’t be able to mount or submit her. Then Miesha didn’t even show up against Kedzie and barely got out with a win. Did you know she got so depressed that she wanted to quit MMA after that fight? Miesha was going to take at least a year off, and only changed her mind when the UFC signed Ronda. That’s your mentally tough challenger. She only gets title shots because of injuries and politics. If the UFC was actually about merit, Davis or McMann would be on the show right now going up against Ronda. Once Tate gets finished again in Dec, I hope Zingano gets another crack at her soon. So Cat can quiet all that whining about how Miesha would have won if Winslow didn’t stop the fight.

          • JEFF

            Again… All of that is unfortunate and goes undisputed. HOWEVER, why have you not still answered questions on your thoughts on Shayna’s behaviour on the show leading up to the fight??? As well as her antics and comments in the aftermath of the fight??? With out using other fighters who’ve displayed similar behaviour what do you think of Shayna’s boasting and unbearable bravado???

      • Kieran

        she’s SO friggin’ hot, though

    I see the hate train is moving, and they don’t even know where it’s going. Who are you to say she looks stupid? Take your shirt off you fat fucks. How many fights have you won? What she did was make this show worth watching, and it worked. She’s on fucking TV drawing ratings. You think you’re better than her because she lost? She’ll still be in the UFC, and guess who’s gonna pay to watch it? Your dumb asses so shut the fuck up.

    • No

      I do not pay for UFC events,ever.

    • Underdog

      LOL no one is going to pay to watch her arrogant ass fight. Get real.

      • Mark

        Right. But they will watch Alexis Davis and Sara McMann’s fights. Davis was already beaten already by Shayna, and she also had little trouble picking Sara apart standing last year. Which makes all these negative comments about Shayna’s stand up so comical. If her striking is so bad, why did Sara get tooled by her so badly on the feet? Look up their fight on YT if you haven’t seen it before.

        • fightfan

          You keep mentioning Shayna’s fight with Sara McMann? You act like Shayna beat her form bell to bell? Then why did Shayna lose a unanimous decision in that fight with McMann? I am not hating against Shayna. She is a great FM fighter. But the facts are she got cocky and overconfident and lost to a lesser fighter

          • Mark

            Because judges are always right? I guess Machida also beat Shogun because the judges said so?

            And it’s understandable that Baszler was flat for this fight. It happens when you look past a fight. Miesha did that against Kedzie, and was lucky to have not paid the price. She even admitted afterwards to sleepwalking through that fight and wanting to quit MMA.

            Another example of a fighter looking past an opponent is Alexis Davis. She felt she deserved a shot at Rousey, and was given someone like Sexton. She knew it did nothing for her career. What happened? Alexis came out looking terrible, and barely beat what was supposed to be an a gimme fight. Is Davis also overrated? Not worthy of being in the UFC?

    • BULLDOG

      I LMFAO AT ALL THE QOFS HATERS ON HERE…DO YOURSELVES A FAVOR & RESEARCH SHAYNA’S STATS…THE ONLY FEMALE FIGHTERS WITH NOTEABLE RECORDS COMING INTO THAT HOUSE WERE TARA, ROXY, SHAYNA, & TONYA, WITH JESSAMYN A FIGHTER ON THE RISE TO LOOK OUT FOR…WAYYYYYY PRE GINA CARANO ERA TRAILBLAZERS…OOH AHH REMEMBER GINA?

      • Mark

        Exactly. Funny how the same people trashing Shayna’s resume want Miesha to win the belt. Miesha got KOd by Kaitlin Young. Had her face turned into hamburger in a one sided beating by Kaufman. Lasted only 4 minutes against Rousey despite bragging beforehand that she had never been mounted or subbed before. Then almost gets KOd by a career gatekeeper in Kedzie in what was supposed to be a tune up fight. The UFC then gives her an undeserved shot at Ronda again…. despite her losing in brutal fashion. Let’s be honest… she’s only the top contender by default. She’s only fighting for the belt again because of an injury and her feud with the now much hated Rousey. Which makes this whole thing so funny. The Tate fans can’t stand Ronda, but she’s the only reason Miesha is fighting for the title in Dec.

      • Bobcat

        Keep Dreamin , Bulldog ! and Mark ! Keep drinking that Kool-Aid ! and Davis put Baszler to sleep in their most recent fight !

        • Mark

          Ever seen Miesha’s record against top girls? It is one win, 4 losses. The only one she’s beaten is Marloes Coenen, and that was a Coenen severely weakened by a major weight cut. Even Liz Carmouche easily dominated Coenen at that lower weight with just two weeks notice.

          Regarding Kool-Aid, you keep drinking that UFC propaganda about them having the best fighters. A year from now, a handful of them will be gone after they served the purpose of padding the top girls records. Why do you think they brought in natural 125ers to fight McMann, Davis, and Kaufman? It’s because they want to showcase these contenders with safe matchups. Can’t risk knocking them off with legit comp like Baszler and Smith.

          • Joe

            Miesha was competitive against those “top girls”. This arrogant Shayna chick fought a nobody and was utterly dominated. Period. Even after the fight, she can only talk about how she is three times the fighter or she would win 99 out of a 100 times.

          • Mark

            She wasn’t competitive at all against Kaufman. She was unable to take her down at all and was used as punching for the entire fight. She was in control for less than a minute against Rousey. Got her arm dislocated in only 4 minutes. After Cat came alive in the 2nd, it was all Zingano. Tate was desperate to survive the bell for a decision. Why do you think she was whining about the stoppage? She knew that was the only way she would win that fight. After Ronda is done with her, she’ll be 1-5 against top women. She will have a 1-7 record if she fights McMann and Davis afterwards. I don’t see her beating either one. Or Zingano and Kaufman in rematches.

      • David

        …she still is a fuckin sore loser, excue making, my ‘gina hurts fighter…she should just say ” I planned poorly, she got me, and she was the better fighter” end of dramma. Live in the present “Puppy Chow” its what makes her the fighter she is at that moment.

      • JEFF

        Shayna is that you??? Quit fooling around we know that’s you

      • JEFF

        A couple of things wrong w/ your “she was selling the fight” theory. 1. TUF is about building stars or in Bazler case, if you already have a cult following, it is a tool to build a larger following for such fighters who enter the TUF house. Fights that occur inside the house, to many fans, seem to be different than fights that occur at UFC events. Selling fights is not needed as most who tune into TUF watch it b/c they are a fan of the series and would watch the fights regardless of who was fighting. 2. If Shayna was merely “selling the fight” why did her boastfulness not discontinue after the fight had ended??? Why does her blog still have that stench of self entitlement and an overly cocky attitude??? Shayna was not “selling the fight”… The thoughts that she carried going into the bout and thoughts that she still carries with her after the bout. Are feelings that she truly felt and more than likely STILL feels! Which leads one to believe “that what she said is her true nature of having that cockiness deep inside”. ***That last sentence is genius on two levels.***

        • whit thomasson

          THE PROBLEM WITH THIS WHOLE F’IN SEASON IS BECAUSE ALL THE TALK IS ABOUT WMMA. AND IF YOU TRIED TO MAKE A PAY PER VIEW FROM WOMEN FIGHTERS, THEY WOULD LOSE THEIR ASS.

I HAVE FOUND MYSELF TURNING THE SHOW OFF THIS YEAR BEFORE THE FIGHTS. 2 WEEKS IN A ROW OF ROCKY’S (rocky) lmfao issues with Mommy had me deleting the show or flipping thechannel as soon as it came on.

I bet you are one of the ones who blasted Silva for his antics that got him KO’ed showing lack of respect. Baszler showed lack of respect as well and she paid the price for it…Look just because you have an infatuation with Baszler doesn’t mean what she did was ok. Her actions made her look like an idiot and now she is being called out for it. This has nothing to do on whether or not she deserves to be in the UFC, how many wins she has or comparing her to Tate / McMann this has to do with your puppy love crush talking ish and getting subbed … period so make some points here or beat it kid

      • Mark

        Did you miss all the comments about how she’s not one of the best at 135? That somehow this upset proves she’s doesn’t deserve to be in the UFC with such world beaters like Gaff, Sexton, Eye, and Andrade. Tell me who they beat at bantamweight to get signed before Baszler and Smith.

    • Just Bleed

      How does she not look stupid? Are you a fucking idiot? She talked how she was better than Pena in all facets of MMA and how she didn’t deserve to breathe the same air as her and how she should be going to her seminars. Etc. Ad infinitum. And then got FUCKING DEMOLISHED. ROFLZ. Then right after says she is 3 times better than Pena and now in this blog and on Twitter saying she’s still so much better. STFU. You ain’t shit. You never were shit. You ain’t never gon’ be shit. And there ain’t a damn thing you little fangirls can do to change it. I think I’m better than her because I’m on not a delusional, cocky, disrespectful piece of shit who puts Queen of Spades cards in my opponent’s bra during the staredown. She will lose all her fights in the UFC by utter domination while I stream from free sites on the internet.

      Same thing almost happened to Tate against Julie Kedzie. Miesha even admitted afterwards that she was just going through the motions during the fight. Her performance was so bad that she wanted to quit MMA for a while. Only reason she didn’t was because the UFC created a division for female bantamweights a few months later.

      • darbycrash81

        • Mark

          Nope. It’s Miesha who is all talk. Couldn’t beat Ronda despite all her smack talk. Couldn’t beat Zingano either, but gets rewarded anyway. She’ll never be close to the belt again after Dec. Even if Ronda retires next year, she’s not good enough to beat the other top women. Guess she’ll have to reinvent herself once again and create another persona.

  • Underdog

    You got worked. Talked all that mess. You’re a veteran, you should know better than to treat your opponent like that. People like you deserve what comes to them. That girl respected you, on the show she even said how much she admired you. You totally are a disrespectful MMA fighter. You are all ego. You have this sense of entitlement. Get real. If you were 3x better than your opponent…no matter how complacent you are. You should have won. But you didn’t. Maybe your skills aren’t up to your delusional standards. Train some more and lead women’s mma by example and stop being such a douche.

          Correction. I’ve been watching MMA since 1997. I was just 6 years old, but considering I’ve been watching for that long… I think that makes me a real fighter, no? I’ve had over 100 keyboard battles and I’m 96-4. My only defeats came to posters who insulted my sexuality, which sent my head spinning. See I’m actually born a girl, but am waiting to have my sex change next year. My testosterone therapy makes me a little agro here, but at least I’m getting facial hair.

        • Manx

          Watch this space bitches. Manx will be in the UFC, I’ll be the 135lb dude with the chicks build and a little stubble. Testosterone is working bitches…

    “Julianna Pena is not better than the Queen of Spades. But many will believe it after this…foolish mortals”
    “And I will go on forever to say that the QoS and the Queen’s Army will forever be a part of Armbar Nation, until the day when we face each other on the battlefield.”

    I think she’s playing a new RPG like Dungeons & Dragons maybe Cages & Beyatches if so I highly recommend she powers up on her force field.

    Screw all the casual keyboard warriors posting above that jump back and forth to every bandwagon…
    Your belief in yourself should never be lowered to please others and I’m glad to hear the loss hasn’t stopped your drive and determination…People can be mad that you felt that you should have already been in the UFC, but that is more of a fact than an opinion…Pena got a gift at the perfect time…it happens…You’ll be back and I hope you’ll keep the same mental edge you always carry…You know who you are and what you can do…and so so your fans who will always believe in you…

    • Underdog

      The same mental edge that cost her the gift-wrapped ufc contract? LOL keep carrying that arrogance and entitlement. She needs to ear more pie…….humble pie.

      • Manx

        Don’t believe I was talking to you, fanboy….Go find another bandwagon to jump on/off…and stop trying to make points that she already made in her blog like like you own…

        • Underdog

          What points did she make? Excuses after excuses. Youre the fanboy here Manx.

          • Mark

            Kind of like how Miesha said she only lost to Ronda because she fought angry? She also bragged beforehand that she wouldn’t be mounted or subbed. Or even get into the position of getting armbarred. She also made the claim that Ronda wasn’t deserving of fighting her, and had beaten nobody up to that point. It’s interesting how this is all conveniently forgotten by the Miesha fans. And before anyone suggests that Tate is more mature now, she did the same thing against Zingano. Actually had the nerve to blame the ref for not allowing her to continue blocking knees with her face.

        • Manx

          *look* like

      • Bobcat

        well said

    • Cali_PA_boy

      the fans are just as bad as she is…. she F’ ing lost and made excuses. No humility whatsoever. I am not a hater saying she doesn’t deserve to be in the UFC I am a former fan who watch Baszler run her mouth to no end take it too far and get beat to (what Baszler) calls a nobody. Then on top of that this interview is horrible she still runs her mouth. My friend I am not a hater I am just an MMA fan who recognizes bullsh*t

      • Mark

        You realize Tate did the same exact thing, right? She claimed that Rousey didn’t deserve her title fight with her, and hadn’t beat anyone. Then she scoffed at the suggestion that Rousey could mount or submit her. Or even get her into that bad spot. Then after she gets armbarred like everybody else, she makes excuses about how she lost. About how it happened only because she was too emotional. Why do you think Miesha has suddenly developed this new “respectful” persona of hers? It’s because she has deluded herself into thinking she’ll beat Ronda if she controls her emotions. Just watch what happens after Miesha gets armbarred again in December. She’s going to go in there calm and get finished probably even quicker. Then she will slide back into a depression again and likely take a year off.

    • John

      Manx you are a douche. Pena has never been gifted anything. My daughter and I both have seen her train at our gym and have trained alongside her. She has more natural talent than Miss Queen of spades ever had. And Shayna was jealous of her talent from the very beginning.

      • Manx

        I am…and your a fucking moron to think someone has greater skills just because you saw them train in a gym…A lot more goes into a fight than just skills, but you wouldn’t know that because you’ve never stepped foot in a cage, fanboy…Could care less about your uneducated opinions, I just want to know how old your daughter is and if she is single… ; o

        • Matt

          Your a douche talk about a mans daughter… Get in the cage and ill beat you like your daddy should have you disrespectful punk! You wanna be a keyboard warrior go ahead or meet me like I said BOOM! Mangled

          • Manx

            I’ve fought in a cage 5 times, wanna-be tough guy…You think because you practice WWE in your friends backyard you can hang? Lol….trust me when I say your stepping at the wring guy, boy…

          • Zog

            Matt, John had absolutely NO reason BRINGING his daughter into it. He could’ve just said HE’D seen Pena train and it would’ve been good enough.

          • Manx

            Did I say fought in the cage 5 times? Well, what I mean is that I’ve been banned on Sherdog 5 times, so thats pretty much the same right? As far as my real record goes its probably 100 keyboard battles. Fuck that maybe more like 1000. I’ve honestly lost count. Whats your record bitch?

            All I know is that in my mind, I’m unbeatable… so irrespective of not knowing who you, your weight or your size… I have to give me the edge every time. 6 billion people in the world, and I’d say I’m in the top 100… fuck that top 50.

            50 out of 6 billion. Do the maths… VERY unlikely you’d beat me, unless you were like number 49 or so. So point is, don’t talk smack to me coz I’ll fuck you up.

    • Manx

      I say “casual” keyboard warriors because I’m a fucking PRO keyboard warrior. I’ll give anyone in this thread a virtual smackdown… bitches

      • JEFF

        6 billion sperm cells and YOU’RE the bitch that got threw!?! SMH… Consider this a virtual smack… You’re not on my level… I started this shit and I can end ANYONE through this shit… If you’re brave enough just try and come at me… Just be prepared to be humbled.

  • dave

    You “let” someone take the opportunity from you? More delusional thinking. You were in a fight, and you were beaten. Get over yourself.

  • Wolfman19

    Pena not only looked like the better fighter; she also was the better magician. See how she made Shayna’s career disappear with that tap.

    Oh, and while we’re at it, Ms. Joker of Spades”, if Ronda really did say that to you about being her most dangerous competitor, it was as a means of making you feel better. I can assure you, the UFC Champ is not at all fearful of someone with 8 losses who got tapped out in the 1st round of a reality show tournament.

    • Bobcat

      OUCH ! LOLOL

  • Big P

    Sheesh people are hating hard..but hey it happens Shayna. Hopefully you get a chance to come back during this season..but either way, keep doing what you do best, looking forward to seeing you in the UFC :D

  • kon

    Holy shit, what an arrogant, egotistical, delusional, sorry ass sore LOSER this chick is. I was originally rooting for her until it became clear that her ego was out of control. I quickly found myself rooting for Julianna to humble her. I began reading this post expecting her to have come down to earth a little bit but I see that won’t ever happen. Zero ego?? Wowww. I can’t wait to see this bitch get outclassed again so I can see what excuses she’ll come up with the next (and hopefully the last) time.

THE HOT CHIC YOU ALL DROOLED OVER A MERE FEW YEARS AGO WHO BAILED ON MMA FOR A “HOLLYWOOD MOVIE CAREER” – DID YOU ALL BLAST HER FOR THAT, TOO?
    DID SHE TALK TOO MUCH SHIT FOR YOUR LIKING, TOO? OH SO SORRY-BUT YOU SURE DID LOVE HER TITS, DIDN;T YA?

    IF YOU TRULY FOLLOW THIS SPORT, YOU KNOW THAT ANYTHING…AND I MEAN ANYTHING, CAN & WILL HAPPEN ON ANY GIVEN DAY

    SHAYNA DIDNT DISS ANYONE, HATE ON ANYONE…ETC ETC-SHE SPOKE THE TRUTH & SOLD HER HERSELF & HER FIGHT-THATS HER JOB…AND MOST PEOPLE SIMPLY CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH…PERIOD

    OH RIGHT…MY BAD…YOU’LL ALL BE THE ONES SAYING HOW RAD SHAYNA IS WHEN YOURE PAYING $50 FOR THE NEXT UFC PPV CARD SHE’S ON…PALEEEZE

    WHEN SHE WINS THE 135 BELT YOU MAY EVEN BUY HER SIGNATURE BANDANA TO WEAR WHILE YOURE DRINKING YOUR SHITTY BUD-LIGHT

    • Underdog

      Another one of her delusional puppets? LOL maybe you should tell Shayna how unpredictable the fights are because it seems like your hero forgot that she had to fight to win. Her past does not mean crap. She loss 9 fights out of 22….thats pretty fucking horrendous. No one is paying to watch her arrogant shitty ass fight.

      • Manx

        Underdumb-I think it’s quite evident that you have no experience when it comes to fighting other than struggling against those tricky Twinkie wrappers…
        What is it about Shayna’s awesomeness that threatens your manhood so much that you’ve spent the past few hours lurking on her blog to attack anyone who has something positive to say…At first I thought you were a dick attention whore, but now I see you are just a sad little lonely person who is lashing out at the world with jealousy… : (

        • Underdog

          lol what? I just hate arrogant piece of shit people that think they are gifts to the world. if you going to talk the talk..back it up. Apparently Shayna couldn’t but that didn’t teach her any humility did it? Nope.

        • Meesh

          Actually he has a point.

        • urbanangel22

          You may support Shayna for your own reasons, but those who don’t know anything about her have just been exposed sufficientky to make their own opinion.

          And guess what… most people here are pleased that the arrogant bully lost. For this reason I’d like Ronda to lose. Martial Arts has always been about the little guy defending themselves against the bullies… somehow this has been lost. I won’t get into male MMA but in woman’s MMA alone Ronda and Shayna represent everything that I hate. Confidence is one thing, but there is a clear crossing the competitive line in this ugly attitude. It seems many people agree.

          If you’re shocked at the backlash, you really shouldn’t be. As much as people like winners… and the confidence that goes with it, people also like humility. Go figure…

          • Manx

            Who in the fuck asked for your opinion…
            I’ve been into MMA since 1997, so go preach to some other TUF’er like yourself who might care what you have to say…

          • urbanangel22

            Nobody asked for my opinion Manxie, I gave it ..like it or not. Consider it me imposing my will over you, the same way Juliana did it over Shayna.

          • Manx

            Sorry, keyboard warrior, but the only will you display is that of an attention whore…why else would be on the blog of someone who clearly threatens your manhood (or lack of)….
            I can see you desire, though fail terribly, to show all just how witty and intelligent you are, but you trying to ride my cock is just making you look desperate. ..You are like a fruit fly-annoying and full of self-indulged shit…

            very well said

      • Mark

        If Ronda beats Miesha again in December, that will be 3 losses in her last 4 fights. And she was almost knocked out by a gatekeeper in that lone win. How is that winning percentage contender worthy in the UFC?

        • urbanangel22

          Winning percentage aside… are you saying she’s not top 5 in the world?

          What if she wins?

          • Mark

            Who has Tate beaten to be considered top 5? She has already lost badly to Rousey, Kaufman, and Zingano. Davis and McMann are both more than capable of beating her. The last good fighter Miesha has beaten was Marloes Coenen over 2 years ago. And Coenen hasn’t fought in the division since then because the weight cut killed her. So that win is meaningless to the current bantamweight picture.

    • Streams>

      I pay 5$ a month for HD streams of all PPV Events would never pay 50$ lol!

    • Bobcat

      She will not be winning any belt in the UFC 135 division

    • Dana FN White

      Gina was 7-1 and beat fighters that had beaten Shayna. Gina was not a self absorbed delusional little man like Shayna is.

      • Mark

        Gina spent most of her career fighting much smaller fighters. Just like the woman who eventually beat her.

        • Dana FN White

          But Gina was hot and a sweatheart. Shayna is a gross dude with a huge ego and no class.

          • Manx

            …and your nothing but a jealous, uniformed loser who has been trolling her blog for hours now. Why would you spend so much time on the blog of someone you detest??? You must really feel safe behind your keyboard…Guarantee you wouldn’t be saying any of this shit to her face if you had the chance… I’m thinking all this hostility/jealousy you have towards her stems from her refusing your friend request on FB…

          • Mark

            I never really got the appeal of Gina. Maybe some guys are attracted to the whole shy little girl act, but it never did anything for me. Plus it was obvious that Gina always viewed MMA as just a stepping stone. I think Ronda is the same way, but I get a sense that she’s over the whole celebrity thing. It became most noticeable right after she beat Carmouche. That’s when the UFC started having her do nonstop interviews and appearances every weak. They are burning her out, and probably don’t even care. My guess is she’ll try to make as much cash as possible in the next 1-2 years, and then retire and open up her own Judo gym.

    • Cali_PA_boy

      what does that have to do with the fact that she ran her mouth, looked like an idiot doing so and paid the price? You are a loyal fan I get it but all you are doing is turning this into something its not. She ran her mouth she lost and in this article she is making excuses and sounding horrible doing so. that is the point here friend

      • Mark

        So? Sounds like how Miesha has behaved the last year after Ronda beat her. Yet she is portrayed by everybody lately as this “professional” and “respectful” fighter.

        • JEFF

          What does that have to do with people leaving comments expressing their disdain towards Shayna and your gripe with them doing so??? They are two different situations… People also chastised Meisha for her behaviour when she was going through them. You can’t be mad at the fact that people dislike Shayna for her running her mouth, paying the price and STILL continuing to run her mouth. If she is going to have this attitude she should accept the backlash that goes along with it. Meisha did.. The ONLY reason people have accepted her “lately” is b/c she has not behaved that way lately. As well as the fact that Rhonda has been portraying and acting extremely annoying. Meisha’s new found popularity has more to do with people rooting against Rhonda as oppose to people rooting for Meisha.0

          • Manx

            Shut the fuck up, Jeffy and go back to analyzing WWE story lines…….

          • Mark

            Miesha’s new found popularity is the result of a personality makeover. One that she admits to doing only because she lost to Ronda. Miesha engaged in the mind games and nasty trash talk before, and it got her arm dislocated. She has deluded herself that this is the only reason she lost. That’s what this whole “new” and “improved” persona is about. She actually thinks that remaining calm and pretending to be nice will get her a different outcome. I imagine it’ll be quite the shock when she gets finished even faster in Dec. What will be her excuse then? She was too loose going into the fight?

  • shonie carter’s backfist

    Julianna looked nervous as f*** having to fight first, and now your excuse for losing is that you were too calm? That’s a huge advantage.

  • Werdum

    SO MUCH COCK, COCK GIRL.

  • Meesh

    Sounds like a bunch of excuses from a cocky person that was forced to eat her words. Well, choke on them at least. There is a reason why pride always comes before the fall.

  • Verdoom

    The result of the fight was not due to a lucky punch or lapse in judgement. Shayna was dominated in the second round. This was not a one in a hundred fight. To be so arrogant and rest on the laurels of your past shows that you don’t have the drive to be better. Too bad the sport is passing you by just as WMMA is getting popular. Well not going to shed any tears for your arrogant self.

  • Reality

    MMA has passed Shayna by,she got her wins in a time when WMMA was in the dark ages & many could not train full time.Now with up to date technology & the growth of the sport the competitors are just better skilled.

    • Manx

      Reality is you don’t really know what the fuck your talking about…You’ll be the first saying how great she is next fight when she wins…

          • JEFF

            You’ve made countless ignorant comments about why people would come to a blog just to “talk shit” about a fighter. I will lay it out for you since you are not intelligent enough to deduce the reasons why on your own. Most people (myself included) were put off by Shayna’s comments on the show and were pleased to see her lose. Not b/c we disliked her (well at that time). But for the mere fact that she would have to eat her own words. When we saw that she had a blog we came to it to giver her the benefit of the doubt. Thinking that she would at least be gracious in defeat and give praise to Julianna for her win. Instead when we got here we read nothing but her making excuses. As well in addition to that we read more bravado and trash talk. Many could not believe the audacity of Shayna and felt compelled to express what we were feeling as we were reading her ignorant excuse filled blog. Which now, thanks to her, is disdain. Shayna’s attitude has lost her A LOT of fans. And has gained herself a plethora of adversaries. Albeit non-combative adversaries. But adversaries nonetheless.

          • Manx

            You seriously want to come at me 5 years after the fact…like I care what your fucking opinion is?

        • urbanangel22

          Dude, steroids were so common in the sport but now it’s so advanced they’re no longer even called steroids. Nobody does “steroids” anymore… it’s all “Supplementation”. It’s so damn prevalent that if you want to point fingers at Josh you’re just out of touch with the reality of the sport. Assume they all do it and be surprised if some don’t. Thats just reality.

          But Josh has nothing at all to do with Shayna in this context.

        Josh is one of my favorite fighters… love the way he fights and think he’s an awesome personality. Over the years he’s really won me over… but Shayna has just really shown herself up terribly. Losing isn’t that bad, she could come back from this loss no problem. Issue is if she’ll have any fans along the way with her attitude…

      • Dana FN White

        Watch her in her fight with LaRosa, they both looked like Toughmen fighters. Tara knocked her out, and Tara was shown to have been passed by as well, she could not even get into the house.

    • Mark

      Watch Shayna’s fight last year against Sara McMann. She tooled Sara on the feet the whole fight when it went to the ground. Sara was dropped in the 5th and saved only by the bell. If the sport has truly passed Baszler by, what does that say about McMann? A woman picked by many fans as the one to dethrone Ronda.

      • urbanangel22

        Sara is new to the sport and its extremely premature to match her against Ronda. But anyone saying that Shayna is over the hill or useless is honestly not worth responding to as its not true… it’s just another Anderson Silva/Weidman moment thats all. Expect the comments to come in.

        • Mark

          That’s what’s so odd about this whole thing. The same people trashing Shayna are probably completely clueless about that fight. Or oblivious to the fact that the UFC has signed 125ers who have never even fought at bantamweight until recently. I mean, are people seriously going to claim that Andrade and Sexton are more legit despite neither having any wins in the weight class?

          • urbanangel22

            People are clueless about womans MMA generally. I understand the need to market with the attitude and the whole ace of spades thing… hell every TUF series someone has multicolored hair or a mohawk just to be remembered from the rest. Shayna, as a veteran however didn’t need any of that. She’s done enough on fights alone… I think the reality TV thing just isn’t made for some people. Josh sure as hell doesn’t underestimate any opponent.

          • Bobcat

            Sexton’s been around forever too, so I’m very glad they’re giving her a chance ! She’s earned it , even if she hasn’t been a regular at 135 since the Bodog days.

        • Dana FN White

          While she is still competitive, she is not nearly as great as she thinks she is. She is in the middle of the pack and more and more are passing her.

      • Mark

        Seriously. Shayna picked Sara apart the whole fight standing and held her own on the ground. Yet fans make ridiculous comments about Shayna not being good enough to be in the UFC. Just laughable.

        What’s sad is these people would have said the same about Kaufman if she were in Invicta. Despite the fact that she had already served completely one sided beatdowns on Tate, Davis, Carmouche, and Baszler.

        • Bobcat

          you need new glasses if you’re saying her win against Carmouche and the most recent win against Davis were one sided beatdowns …. and the Tate fight was back in ’09 !

          • Mark

            I’m curious how you justify Sexton being signed over Baszler. Shayna recently beat a top 10 135er in D’Alelio. Sexton has no recent wins in the division, and I see it remaining that way until she’s cut by the UFC in the near future. She’s there solely to lose to the top contenders and make them look good. If she loses her next fight to the 125lb Andrade, she will be the next woman cut. If Andrade loses, she will be gone.

            And Tate, Davis, and Carmouche all spent most of those fights being Kaufman’s punching bag. The last Davis fight is the only one where Kaufman received any damage. And I’d argue that Kaufman’s fight with Leslie Smith was far more competitive. Even her teammate Alexis thought so, and said as much on twitter. Yet people like yourself will insist that Smith isn’t good enough for the UFC (simply because she hasn’t been signed).

      • Cali_PA_boy

        that fight was over a year ago dude ! Since then Baszler was beaten a 7-4 Sarah D’Alelio, got subbed by Davis and now lost to Pena…so what is your point here exactly ???

        • Manx

          Why are sticking your nose into the conversations of everyone hours after after the fact like anyone gives a shit what you are saying??? I guess you feel left out, but then why in the fuck are you even on a fighters blog that you don’t like…
          I seriously doubt you have any insight into what it takes to set your mind just to have the balls to get in the cage, so STFU and quit trying so hard to impress people with your uneducated opinions…

          • Manx

          • Mark

            Cali’s comment was laughable. Baslzler’s latest win was last October. She beat the top ten ranked D’Alelio. Meanwhile Tate’s most recent win is the 16-12 gatekeeper Julie Kedzie, and it took place last August. So Baszlers’ win is more recent, against a higher ranked opponent, and was more impressive overall (finished faster and with far less damage taken). Yet Miesha gets the contract, the undeserved title shot and hype, and a coaching spot on TUF. What does this tell you? It truly pays to be hated by Ronda. People ask me why I keep bringing up Tate constantly in these conversations. It’s because of bizarre politics like this.

        • Mark

          So explain to me how Andrade, Sexton, Gaff, and Eye are more deserving of being in the UFC than Baszler and Smith. Let’s compare their resumes at bantamweight.

  • urbanangel22

    I’ve always been a fan of fighters with sincere humility, not fake on-camera humility. It appears that GSP is a good example of that sincerity, at least in my opinion. Some may not go for this, and thats ok.

    I totally understand supporting the anti-hero like Diaz for example – I see the attraction to the whole “keeping it real” mentality. People want to see the real person, and not generic politically correct answers. But a certain perspective needs to be kept, though its inevitably complicated when fighters must also market themselves.

    It’s not a clear cut issue… but as a fan and spectator you will inevitably chose to like or dislike the fighter. If you’ve marketed yourself as a confident bully, expect people to have opinions.

  • Cherry

    Reality check people. This, though a tournament, is still reality tv. Edits happen. For those of you saying that you doubt the encouraging words were said, that is your own prerogative. Things get edited that the editors feel are not “juicy” enough. Get over yourselves please.

    Shayna lost. It happens. I do not know if you realize this, but vets do lose once in awhile. You can hate on Shayna all you want. Just realize that down the road, she is going to get a contract. Maybe it was not meant to be with Ultimate Fighter. But she is going to have a contract.

    I have been a fan of Shayna for awhile now. Before TUF. You all are really foolish to think that she is this horrible person, this delusional egotistical person. She wrote her blog exactly up how she was feeling. If you don’t like how she wrote her own personal blog, feel free to click that little “X” at the top of your window.

    She made a mistake. It happens to everyone. She should not have lost to Pena. But she did. She realizes is. Just like she said, Pena fought for her life. It is obvious when watching. It is just as obvious when you look at Shayna on how she reacted. If you watch one of her fights where there is a crowd, where there is music. She reacts differently. She interacts differently. She knew what was wrong. She will move from it and fix it.

    Telling someone that they just suck and should have lost is silly to me. It was anyone’s ball game. Shayna could have walked away victorious. Keep in mind, telling someone that they do not deserve something is just going to feed their fire to drive more. So please, go on trolling. And when she gets her contract, realize that she was using your sweat from your posts to feed her fire.
    Go on, troll away.

    • urbanangel22

      I dont think its trolling. For those who don’t know Shayna for the “real” person she is… TUF and this blog are the only representation of her. People will have opinions and will comment without being forced to simply keep quiet and close the page. Make a blog post, go onto reality TV, expect people to have opinions. Some opinions may be a little harsh and overly hateful but that goes with the territory.

      Yes, she’s definitely better than what she showed and she will surely be back. No doubt about that… but hopefully she learns QUICKLY as to how she’s come across. A reality check and some humility will do wonders for both her performance and nullifying the hate, maybe even win over some fans.

      • Judge Judy

        Shayna should get the respect in that she is one of the vets of WMMA, but it seems like she is confusing her longevity in the sport with skill.

        All this repeated talk of her being “one of the best women in the world” is just crazy. She is good, sure. She has a recognizable name to most MMA fans, yes. But far from one of the best females in the world.

        • urbanangel22

          She is one of the best in the world no doubt, but that performance didn’t show her up well. Oh also maybe Juliana is just better. But if truth be told, neither impressed me that much.

          • Judge Judy

            Woman’s MMA is just not very deep thats the reality. Especially if your standards are mens MMA. If you want to put her in top 10 or top 20, she’s still a forcet. But she didn’t look good thats for sure.

          • How So

            She’s not even ranked by those who know the limited depths of WMMA in the top 15 P4P .

      Get over it, fangirl… Your girlfriend lost. She got beaten and finished in a second round.

      No one is trolling here. Everyone is giving their opinion on FACTS. She was being a bitch, talked waaay to much and couldn’t backed it up on the cage.

      In fact, is YOUR opinion that can be considering trolling, since it’s totally biased because, as you said, you’re a FAN…

    • underdog

      Reality check for whom? Reality check for Shayna. A little humble pie for her egotistical attitude and self entitlement thoughts. Congrats on being a long time fan of Shayna; and you’re right..you probably know her better than most of us. But you know what…the impressions we have is what is shown. TUF chose some clips of her acting like an arrogant pompous ass. Maybe there were clips of her that would shown her in a better light. But then she writes this excused filled blog that furthers supports the character that she was on TUF. Everyone loses. Nobody cares that she lost. The way she acted is what drives everyone against her.

      Regarding your last paragraph. Isn’t that way Shayna did to her opponent on the show? “She doesn’t belong in the ring with me.” “I am 3x better than her.” “She doesn’t deserve this opportunity.” really? And you support her? Take away your biases and watch the show again and see what type of character she displayed and tell us why we shouldn’t act this way?

      When you act as arrogant as she did on television, you deserved all the back-lash when you can’t walk the talk. She made a mistake and she realizes it..yet she still feels the need to bash her opponent? She still feels the need to make excuses?

    • kon

      “Telling someone that they just suck and should have lost is silly to me. It was anyone’s ball game.’

      Sounds like Shayna should have taken your advice, huh? Maybe she wouldn’t be getting shitted on so heavily for her lack of humility.

      “And when she gets her contract, realize that she was using your sweat from your posts to feed her fire.”

      I agree, when Julianna wins TUF, Shayna can refer back to this blog post. Maybe then she’ll bounce back to reality.

    You talked waaay to much before the fight! And you could have learned a valuable lesson right there, but you clearly didn’t… Seeing you with your bloody mouth, crying and claiming “I’m like three times the fighter she is”, right after getting beaten and finished in a second round, was just plain sad…

Now quit whining and trying to tell everyone you are better than the girl that clearly just whooped your behind. Maybe you should try finding a new line of work. You definitely didnt impress me.

    • Mark

      The ironic thing is that Tate did the same thing to Rousey last year. She claimed Ronda didn’t deserve to fight her, hasn’t beat anyone, and would have no problem avoiding that “one trick”. Then she gets armbarred like all the rest, and makes excuses for the past year. The sad thing is that Miesha still believes that she lost only because she fought angry. It’s going to be quite the shock when she loses again despite remaining “respectful” and not playing into Rousey’s mind games. My guess is it will hit her even harder this time and she’ll take a year off.

      • underdog

        Why do you keep bringing up Tate? No one really gives a fuck about Tate. We’re talking about QOS. All your posts on here is about defending her by bringing up Tate. Can’t you admit that the way she acted on the show does not show a good light on her? I mean, this is her first real exposure to the ufc fan masses and she acts like a prima dona. Loses the fight and still acts that way. Makes excuses after excuses. No humility. She feels she deserves this or that; yet she didn’t earn anything. Her enemy isn’t the person shes fighting..its her mentality. Just because she was one of the ones that paved the ways for WMMA does not mean she should be glorified. Earn your keeps.

        • Mark

          How is Tate not relevant to these comments? Everybody is bringing her up constantly as someone who is far more likeable than Rousey or Baszler. About what a great role model she is and other such nonsense. Yet Tate is guilty of everything you mentioned. She only stopped displaying the above bad characteristics because she thought it was counterproductive to getting to the top again. That’s what this whole “new” and “improved” personality makeover is about. The funny thing is that many people are buying into it. There is going to be a lot of shocked fans when she loses in December and spirals down the drain again.

          • underdog

            Once again, you’re talking about Tate. I’ve read most of the posts here and yours are the ones that truly bring her up. It’s like you have a personal vendetta against her. I dont care about her nor Roussey. Maybe we should focus on whose blog this is. So are you going to answer my questions in the post aforementioned?

          • Mark

            And are you going to tell me how Tate isn’t relevant to this whole conversation? If it wasn’t for her being disrespectful towards Ronda, she wouldn’t even be fighting for the title and on the show. Their feud is the only reason Dana gave her the undeserved coaching spot and title shot. So it seems pretty hypocritical to blast Baszler when both Rousey and Tate used trash talk to get noticed.

      • Joe

        She was dominated in the standup and either had no heart to get out of the choke or simply has no submission defense skills.

    • Mark

      I dunno. How is that any different than all the fighters that have called Rousey a one trick pony? And then proceed to lose to her? Kaufman and Tate are both guilty of this before they fought her. Zingano, McMann, Baszler, and Davis have also used variations of this slam against her. Which will make it interesting if she ends up dominating them before she retires. It will mean they somehow lost to an overrated one trick pony.

      • underdog

        Once again bringing up Tate when the poster you are responding to made no mention of her…..oddly suspicious lol.

        • Mark

          I’m bringing up the hypocrisy of fighters and the fans. I’m curious about the double standards being used here. Everybody knows that Tate is only on the show and fighting for a title because of trash talk. If she had kept it respectful towards Ronda, you think Dana cares about this matchup? That’s the ironic thing about Baszler being criticized. Dana is actually more likely to want her in the UFC if she’s disrespectful like Ronda and Miesha.

  • Sydney

    I understand that you need to keep yourself motivated via the whole American over-confidence thing, but all your loss boiled down to was a complete lack of head movement. You were rocked then turtled up. It could have been avoided. Team Rousey striking coach should have emphasised that against a brawler like Julianna.

    • Joe

      I’m no mma fighter and I know to move my head in a fight. The other girl is far superior. Sorry but you shouldn’t get respect and recognition as a great fighter just by bragging about yourself and dismissing other fighters.

  • http://mutantville.com Brento

    Julianna came out like a house on fire as Michael (The Voice ) Schiavello might say. I really expected her to gas. She doesn’t “look” as fit as Shayna, who for that matter looks fitter than any in the house. Shayna seems to have a good bit more muscle mass than most of the girls. Perhaps that’s what happened, the adrenaline dump and said muscles crying out for my air. Technically speaking it seemed like there was a way out of that spot and she just got too tired to execute. I’ve been tapped but never from a full back mount RNC. That’s one of the positions they drill the mat newbies on escaping from so I can only surmise this was exhaustion at play here. I did notice Shayna in round one going for the RNC of her own without securing the hooks. Ah, no submission without position, Honey.

    Look I tend to agree that she didn’t get up for the fight for whatever reason. Shayna was extremely tough and resilient in that beating from Cyborg. Julianna didn’t put nearly that much leather on her.

    I get the whole QoS persona and how you have to believe you are the best regardless. Very Barnett I must say. Rhonda does that same thing. The difference here is that those people’s records back up all the smack talk. You’ll never have a better platform for winning new fans that TUF. A little humility goes a long way and all the smack talk after getting whipped just alienates. Anyways, that’s my 2 cents.

    Geez Rhonda came off as a real nutter after that team loss.

I have read on you like crazy I am looking forward to your next fight! Best wishes.

  • Rocco55

    This is funny. It’s an absolute excuse-a-thon. And the one person that she has a legitimate grip with she defends in Rousey. Here are the facts. Rousey had first pick and picked Shayna to fight Julianna, an unknown fighter to both of them. She then fills Shayna’s head with comments like “She doesn’t even deserve to breathe the same air as you” adding to Shayna’s already way too over confident mind set. If you are a supposed Veteran of MMA then you must have seen some big upsets. And not preparing for a war means when it becomes a fight you will crumple. Rousey should feel some of the blame. She picked the fight. And she picked wrong, dead wrong. Making excuses about a loss is understandable, but when you tap Shayna there really are no real excuses.

  • C

    Keep fighting Shayna, doing this while you can is its own reward, you’ll look back and feel nothing but pride so ride it out.

  • aModerateThreat

    you are only as good as your last fight. funny that you could be in the game for more than a decade and not learn to have respect for your opponents or humility for yourself. i am glad the sport has passed you by, we dont need you.

  • Tebin Taw

    Shayna, I honestly think you’ve done a great job. You’ve come a long way and achieved a lot despite your IQ of 60. You keep striving for greatness, all the odd delusions you wrap yourself in will surely soften the blow of failure and provide warmth to a life in obscurity.

  • Peter

    Of course you come off as arrogant, Shayna, because saying what you said is pure arrogance. You probably lack self-awareness if you think you are a humble person. You don’t have to be, but admit what you are instead.

    It’s also extremely disrespectful to an opponent to say that you’ll win 99/100 times after you’ve lost. She was better than you when it counts and you have to respect that even if you don’t like her as a person (she doesn’t come off any worse than you on the show, but you can always blame editing, right).

    As for Rousey, she clearly has mental issues. If you had no previous knowledge about WMMA you’d think that Tate is the undefeated champion since she carries herself better and seems to be in control of the situations he’s in. Rousey comes off like a young teenager that hasn’t learned to control her emotions yet. I understand why she was so nervous about this being aired. She has every reason to.

    • aModerateThreat

      i think rousey is a little bit developmentally stunted. she had one long judo clinic for a childhood.

      Tate only keeps her emotions in check because she’s deluded herself into thinking that’s why she lost to Ronda. The funny thing is she’s going to go into the rematch with the opposite approach and still suffer the same outcome. I wonder what excuses she will have this time… bad gameplan, her head wasn’t in the right place, Ronda got lucky again, etc.

      She took cyborg down and gave her a tough fight, and this is at 145lbs. Shayna has fought the toughest women in the world and has done so for years. And she did win that first round. But it is what she said. Shayna came out, with obviously better cardio. and kept up the pressure until shayna faded and couldn’t keep up.

  • 1yellowjk

    I have always been a huge fan of WMMA and have seen Shayna fight a few times on the old HD Net, so when I watched her one E1 I though to myself “she has this in the bag.” Then I heard her speak and I tell you this, if being humble is a gift Shyna never unwrapped that present and indeed threw it in the river with a rock tied around it.
    After last nights episode I tried to attribute her coming off as a bitch and disrespectful as creative editing, well thanks for clearing that up miss “Queen of Spades”. What you did was imply that every woman there hasn’t given it her all, that every other woman in that house has no skill and no right to be there and that you are the best. Well you proved something, but it wasn’t that your the best, it’s that despite your many years fighting you have a lot of growing up to do. Your excuse that you didn’t bring your A game, or because it wasn’t a big show you didn’t give it your all…you had a contract and a direct enterance into the UFC, if that’s not motivation enough for you then you don’t deserve to fight for the UFC or any org for that matter. You got your ass kicked, stop making Tito Ortiz excuses and “woman” up.

    • Rogue vampire

      I agree. Thought I thought she won the first round, barely. It was obvious to me, that the other girl was coming on strong. You could see in between rounds that shayna was gassed and the other girl couldn’t wait to get back at her. She came out, guns blazing, with much much better cardio, and wore her right down. She didn’t just win a close decision, but made shayna tapp out. That is pretty hard to argue against, lol

  • Joseph

    The one thing to remember is never underestimate your opponent, quit giving excuses take your lumps and learn from your mistakes, Shayna Queen of Spades YOU are as good as you think I’ve seen your fights, but when you start believing your own hype then you are doomed, you don’t take the threat seriously and you rely on the skill you have rather than your fear of losing, fear that drives you to be better, and to expect anything, amd prepare for the worst.

    You are a great fighter but you let you ass write a check that you could not cash.
    Talk less and lets see your actions prove how good you are.

  • Rick

    That is one of the stupid things ive ever heard. Dont go on for sentences and sentences ‘ive been fighting for this long, been fighting in organizations all round the world, im one of the greatest female fighters, say that this chick doesnt deserve to breathe your air’….you got beat. You cant try to say that the TUF fights are a sparring session. No helmets or protective equipment, same rules, and televised and viewed by millions of people in multiple countries. How many injuries, knockouts, and submissions have been stamped on people in that cage. A fight is a fight bitch whether its you and someone else in a parking lot, on the street, wherever whenever is the fighters quote.
    Be realistic and admit it…you were being a cunt to this chick and she humbled you. She beat you in a fight. Fair and square. Just admit it.

    Totally disappointed not only her, but Rhonda as well for being such pissy and whiney sore losers. Many of us in the military compete in matches (jits, muay thai, grappling) and regardless of the smack talk, we stand up and shake hands regardless of winning or losing. This immature, excuse producing, crying, oh and to add what Rousey commented to Tate about “her smirking on the benefit of the loss” totally unprofessional, immature, and she lost quite a bit of fans….but I am sure she can give 2 shits about it. Point is; Lose with dignity, not with excuses….grow up…both of you! LT

  • kmc123

    I bet if Dan Henderson fought Bisbing in a warehouse without loud intro music Hendo would get choked out in the 2nd round too! Bahahahaha! Julianna wins this match up 5/5 times…especially now that the fighting someone you looked up to and intimidation factor are gone. That was your one chance to catch an inexperienced Julianna and you blew it.

  • chris

    She got overwhelmed by a lesser opponent because she felt she was entitled to win.

    She gave up and didn’t want it…… you could tell when she didn’t try to escape when pena had her back. Didn’t try to get her back to the mat and turn into her at all, didn’t fight the hands.. etc etc

    • Mike

      Julianna was a superior opponent who clearly had more power and accuracy in striking. She also obviously had more stamina and heart, as well. So I don’t see how you could call her “lesser.” Maybe in some areas of grappling, but overall no.

      • Thiago

        You fail. Please stop trying to pretend your opinion counts for anything. Thank you.

            Eh, I don’t see Pena reaching the top in either the UFC or Invicta. Not at 135 anyway. Mid level talent at best.

  • Griffin

    You did not just kick her ass the first round period. Give me a break. I thought actually know I know that you are too cocky and you think you are too good, really and that is why you lost, and that is why your record is what it is. To hear you say you are one of the best in the world is beyond me, I do not see that at all. Good luck, maybe if your lucky you will get another chance one day but I personally hope not.

    Shayna, I guess Julianna actualy does “deserve to breathe the same air” that you do. You and Ronda came off like both arrogant bullies and pathetically weepy basketcases. I hope you both lose more fights and then get some counseling. You need it. Big time.

    • Sylvia

      Agreed!!!!

  • Sylvia

    Shayna and Ronda are soooo whiny. They are extremely annoying. At first I was annoyed with Julianna but after all the shit talk from Shayna,all I wanted was for Julianna to beat her ass! And she did! In both round! Shayna needs to stop kidding herself, in fact so dose Ronda. Miesha Tate is going to give her a beat down just like Shayna got from Julianna. Oh and BTW what a horribly written blog! It was nothing but justifying why you suck. Yuck!

    • Mark

      You’re going to disappointed in December. Tate has lost to every top 135er she has fought. I hope they match her up with Davis and McMann after she’s finished by Ronda. A rematch with Cat would be awesome as well. Tate will then be 0-7 against top bantamweights.

  • Sho Kasugi

    Shayna is no joke. But definitely its disappointing to come on here and read a bitter blog about Julianna. Remember Shayna, when you started out? Who did you look up to? The girl thought the world of you and you are still treating her with disdain. You are a great fighter and a legend in the sport so ignore the majority of comments on here saying BS about how you fight. I actually though your over confidence was not a bad thing but something you needed to feel to get in the zone – certainly not something to carry on with after the fact. Give the girl props where props are due. You stepped up to a legend, one who is still game and won due to heart and dare I say natural ability, the two same things that made you the fighter you are. So drop the bitterness and give the girl some damn respect and then maybe you will start to see a little more positive returns from the MMA community (I expect to see you as a contender in the UFC very soon either way – just hope its with a better approach that I can support)

  • Sho Kasugi

    Sorry that should read “she stepped up to…”

  • Mark Dossett

    I’ve never heard someone talk so much about how bad ass they are after losing a fight. Call a spade a spade she kicked your ass and it wasn’t because she was fighting for her life. She was fighting for a spot in the UFC. To bad you couldn’t get up for this fight!!! That’s how you handle losing. You talk to much, to the point that you’ve fooled yourself into thinking the only way you can lose is by beating yourself. Try having more heart and less arrogant’s. arrogant’s will never beat heart. Just saying

  • natman2939

    That was truly a cringe-worthy read. You’re 15-8 and act like you’re on Ronda’s level. You got dominated in that second round (and the first round was not that amazing for you and would’ve been worse if the girl had been smart enough to back up and keep striking as she was obviously out striking you pretty easily)
    and yet you write this with your nose in the air and make half a dozen excuses from the venue being strange to not training normally to thinking you could wait until round 3. Excuses, excuses. You ate 3 knees to the head, got put down and tapped. I’d love to see her beat you again and see what your excuses are then.

      Did you see Alexis Davis’ fight against Rosi Sexton? Alexis came in flat, and barely won in what was supposed to be an easy fight. Same thing happened to Miesha after she lost to Ronda in Strikeforce. She looked awful against Kedzie, and nearly got KOd by her. Admitted after the fight that she felt numb the entire time and wanted to leave MMA for a while. Both Davis and Tate were angry with their fight situations at the time. Alexis thought she deserved to be fighting Rousey instead, and Tate was mad at being put on the undercard and playing second fiddle to Ronda. Doesn’t matter who you are, you’ll get embarrassed if you fight unfocused.

    Ronda should feel insulted that you even speak of you and her being near the same level…YOU ARE NOT EQUALS!! Ronda is an Olympian and pro…you are a “wannabe”. face the music sweetie.

    also..I can see why you both get along on the team together: annoying, whinny, arrogant…with huge egos! have fun scissoring each other!

      Pena would be mid level at best in the UFC. If she goes to Invicta, Nakamoto will brutalize her. Even D’Aleio and Smith would beat her. I don’t see her ever being anything more than Miesha’s shadow.

    You lost. You disrespected your art and your opponent with your words, you backed none of it up with actions and now you have returned to words. You have to look inward and see your low self esteem has led to defeat and the laying of blame everywhere but where it belongs, with you. Be better. You are worth it.

    Chicklet teeth got the loss she deserved. She came across very arrogant by talking a whole lotta smack and under estimated her opponent.

You make excuses why you couldn’t get up for the fight, even after Dana looked you all in the eye and said this was a chance to change all of your lives. Too full of yourself to bother listening to the man? You never respected Pena, acted like you won before you stepped into the ring, and that amateur mistake cost you. You could have won a few points and just owned that, but no, you’re in here talking smack about her personality, or whatever.. Who CARES what her personality is like, nobody is looking for a date (or, are you?) with her, she’s a fighter, and you did all you could to make her kicking your ass that much easier..

  • CheeseStick

    This is almost insane. How could a person be more of a sore loser. Trying to think of some kind of plausible reason to validate your loss to her. What the hell, what is this ? Going into sparring mode ? What a bunch of bullshit. Really its on YOU. You lost and got submitted, even if you blame it on your mindset or whatever. You supposed to be a professional and a veteran of the sport. So that mindset failure also comes down to you failing. Sure the road has been hard, but you really got to man up (no pun intended). It’s going to be hard coming back from this as you look like a complete tool.

    What a cocky half-wit Shayna is. She is critical of Julianna and her character but did she watch the show? The playing card at weigh-ins, the endless self-promotion the idiotic statements-all coming from Shayna. There is a reason the UFC has passed her up and there is a reason she lost on the biggest stage of her life. She learned nothing which is sad…almost as sad a believing her own hype. Experience is only a piece of the puzzle. There was one professional in that ring with heart…Julianna has new fan here. Shayna do yourself a favor-close your mouth and learn from the experience. How awesomely ironic- you and your team say Julianna doesn’t deserve to breath the same air you breath…then she nearly chokes you unconscious.

    • Dogboy

      “How awesomely ironic- you and your team say Julianna doesn’t deserve to breath the same air you breath…then she nearly chokes you unconscious.”

      LOL couldn’t have come up with a better line!

  • Dogboy

    Shayna, you underestimated your opponent, one of the biggest mistakes any fighter can make… especially given that you admit you knew nothing about her. Confidence is one thing, and can be admired. Cockiness is ugly, and you need to figure out where that line is and take a step back over to this side. If you happen to read these comments you need to keep this in mind; people will pretend to be a friend when they need something from you. Ronda felt bad because when you lose, SHE loses, and her ego can’t handle that. Don’t think for a second she cares about your feelings, she’d step on your neck quicker than look at you.

  • Keep It Real

    Shayna, you mentioned in TUF that you did not understand why you got passed up by the UFC. I think this fight may hold for you the answer to that. When everything was on the line, you feared failure. You feared investing everything you had into the result of that fight. You got beat by someone that did not fear failure. Folks usually call this loosing to someone that has more heart, but it really has to do with the courage to fail with no excuses.

    The beauty of the sport is that the cage and the rules do not allow ANYONE to hide – your fear of failure will either be revealed, or rebuked by your conduct during the fight; You can’t fake it. This is the most HONEST sport out there to watch.

    Your legacy has one shot to match your vision of yourself at this point – you earning a title fight in the UFC. It’s a huge mountain, but the only one that could give you any hope of realizing your fantasy.

    If you don’t accomplish that, you will most likely be remembered as one of the pioneers, but certainly not one of the great UFC fighters.

    You let yourself down more than anyone else, I’m sure.

    Best of Luck – I hope you find the fire again. Don’t waste your time talking about it….block out the world and get back to work.

  • Ass Chop

    Shayna’s head is so far up her own butt, if she did a quick left it would snap her neck. The arrogance is cringeworthy. While watching her blab about how much better she was I was thinking how stupid she would look if she lost.

    In any event, she has a nice body but that’s all she has.

  • Mirkus

    She’s PATHETIC. It baffles me that EVEN after being FINISHED in an amazing display of technic and desire for the win by Juliana, shayna STILL will not keep her crappy mouth shut and FINALLY accept thte fact juliana was MUCH better than her in the second round and deserved NOT ONLY to be in the octagon with her, but also to win the fight. Shayna may be a veteran in the sport and also one of the best out there, but that doesnt mean she has the right to the step on her opponents face the way she did and undersetimate them. I honestly think that if they fought 99 other times, juliana would beat her at least in50 of them. I thought this would be a great lesson for shayna… but apparently she hasnt learnt shit from the loss and the way she went into the fight. Im seriosuly GLAD Juliana won. And most importantly of all, JULIANA IS THE HOTEST BY FAR IN THE HOUSE. DAMN, I WOULD HIT THAT. GOTEAMMIESHA#

      Perhaps Shayna can get employment from Dana White as an Octagon mop girl when the cards are done. Sort of like a two year internship until she realizes the importance of respect towards other fighters.

    Shayna is a classless azz, thinks so high or herself with no game. She got a severe ass whooping and still mouths off. You Shayna are no where near a top female, not even close. Learn to shut the big mouth before and after.

  • James

    You lost because you were arrogant, acted like an idiot (putting queen of spades on her etc). You thought u were so smart and getting into Pena’s head and scaring the life out of her but all you did was to increase the pressure on yourself and pushed Pena to a corner so she had no choice but to fight for her life.

    All you did was talk, talk, talk, talk and underestimated and disrespected your opponent which is unprofessional. Every neutral in the world celebrated when you lost it was like a bully getting beat up.

    The sad thing is that reading your blog post above highlights the fact the beating you got taught you absolutely no lesson.

    Wow I go to youtube and search for baszler and all I find are clips of just abt everyone beating the crap out of her.

        I doubt the only cock she has seen is the strap on she is probably coaxing her roommates to blow. Her being the queen and all. I found it kind of funny to the her coach is a fan of Joan of Ark on her stupid Metro Commercial. Joan used to strap herself in and let horses mount her. Pure class and she definitely led with her chin on that statement!

      You better be careful buddy, she might stick a queen of spades right up your peehole!

    Shayna you are an arrogant little girl! For a supposedly veteran fighter, you have zero sportsmanship and zero class! What kind of a person writes crap like that in the third person??!! And for you to defend the psychotic and irrational behavior of your coach just says alot about your own character! Do you honestly think that Tate was celebrating your pain? Let me ask you something. If you had won the fight, do you think Ronda would’ve come into the cage all gloomy and sad? Hell no! She would’ve stormed into that cage yelling and screaming of excitement because you had won! So why is Ronda all twisting shit around and saying Tate was smiling at your loss? Tate was celebrating her girls victory just like any fighter or coach would do after a win! Ronda’s unstable mentality truly showed after that unwarranted reaction to your loss! And your justifying it! What does that say about you? Have more class. Show some dignity and humility. You and Ronda have lost alot of fans because of your cocky ass attitude and complete lack of sportsmanship. Take a good look at yourself in the mirror and ask “is this the kind if person I want to be and portray?” And call your buddy coach and tell her to do the same!!!

    Who does this chick think she is??? I’m disgusted by her ego… Whats worse is that she claims that she doesn’t have an ego… I hope her next fight is against Cyborg and she beats the SHIT out of her or that she ends up on the down spiral of her peak and she has a “Tito Ortiz” type of career from here on out and a new up and coming fighter tells her that “she doesn’t belong to be in the same cage as her”. If I were to meet her I would tell her what she doesn’t have is HEART… Julianna has heart as that is what she brought in the 2nd round. MAYBE THAT is why you haven’t been called up by the UFC. I’m cool with trash talking… But only when it is used as a mental edge and/or psychological tool. But when you actually start to BELIEVE your own hype to the point that you are looking down on other fighters that is where you lose me (and I am sure a plethora others) as a fan.

      You want a known steroid cheat to beat her up? Cyborg is the same chick who weighed 152lbs for her Akano fight, and actually started eating and came in even bigger after told she’d need to cut weight. Cyborg showed zero guilt for coming in over 7lbs overweight and just expected Akano to fight anyway. Josh Barnett wrote all about her attitude on his Facebook page.

      • Mark

        Here are Josh’s comments from his old Facebook blog:

        “With the menstrual cycle excuse firmly in hand and an unwillingness to do any more than bare minimum, Chris Cyborg stepped on that scale Friday with no intention of making weight I assume. I heard blame on a scale at a gym they used, the period (as explained to me by saying, “Blood” in a Portuguese accent and making a whooshing effect with his hands from the crotch area.), and the fact that Gremlins didn’t enter the picture is surprising.

        It would be one thing if Hitomi had cut too but this issue is compounded by the fact that she gained weight to make this fight already, accepting she would be out sized….but accepting it from a weight of 146, not 150lbs. By the time any deals were made, Cyborg hit a scale at 1 am and was 158lbs. This was post pizza, which we saw her eat after just making weight enough to close the gap in weight difference which the commission needed just to even allow a fight to happen. She had until 8pm to cut. She could have worked to insure a bout by trying to make 146 as was agreed. But she did just enough and hoped we would accept the fight. They wouldn’t reject a fight this big and on TV of things…of course not!

        Hitomi did at first and I supported her in doing so. But when she decided to fight anyways, I had to support that as well. By the time Hitomi had agreed to fight there had been many attempts to make the fight happen and her mind had not changed. Each time Shannon [Hooper], [Akano's manager] Shu [Hirata] and I would present the offer and let her know, any choice she makes is OK by us. Each time she said no. When 2 am rolled around and Cyborg’s camp was A-OK with anything that didn’t involve cutting any weight and the deal was lofty…Hitomi eventually agreed. I don’t think money or anything like that was what changed her mind though. Hitomi and [Abe Ani Combat Club teammate] Megumi [Fujii] talked things over and the decision was made.

        The fight went on and we all deeply hoped Hitomi would make cyborg pay in the cage. In the end the weight difference was much too much. Hitomi lacked the size and strength to effectively use her techniques and I believe that that is the main and deciding reason why Cyborg won that fight. Cyborg was gassed half-way through the 2nd and if she had had to make 146, I think she would have fainted from lack of 02..or maybe cramps would have been the excuse.

        Her victory is hollow and her turning a blind eye to her lack of professionalism is deplorable. Never once was an apology uttered. Never once did I see one act of accountability. I don’t know how to say it in Portuguese but, Cyborg is deserving of no respect and no praise. If you were ever a fan, I’d find someone of better character and better heart.

        Part of me wishes Akano would have stuck to her guns and refused to fight, just to create a precedent. For Santos, losing 20% of her salary is not a big enough consequence for her epically poor planning, especially when Akano was already giving up one weight class. I realize that it’s physiologically harder for women to cut weight — but that only means Cyborg can’t walk around way over her contracted weight like male fighters do. Just because Thiago Alves can do it, doesn’t mean you can. Otherwise, this embarassing “woman problems” excuse could strike her down at any time. Maybe Carano vs. Cyborg should be an open-weight bout so we don’t have to worry about this !@#$%^&* anymore.”

        Clearly Baszler needs to be destroyed by a “classy” fighter like that again. Nothing says sportsmanship like coming in with unnatural advantages and then lying about it later.

        • JEFF

          I made those comments NOT b/c of Cyborgs just attributes and professionalism. But rather b/c the lack of Shayna’s in that bout. No question BOTH fighters need lessons in tactfulness and humility. What bothers me is that you constantly look and see the lack of professionalism in other fighters (Cyborg, Tate). Yet you REFUSE to recognize their lacking in Shayna. You continue to give her a pass. Why is that??? Why does not have to live up to the same standards???

  • Brad

    Right on Jeff….you said it perfectly!!! I couldn’t agree more! I am truly disgusted by the lack of sportsmanship and the cocky ass attitude of this chick and coach!

  • Mark

    I second that Jeff!

  • KDKerr

    Here are the two things I find at fault with Shayna’s outlook, which have nothing to do with her claims of “zero ego.” Throughout the lead up to her fight on TUF 18, she kept reminding viewers about how the competition was beneath her and how she’s already fought the best in the world. However, her current professional record is 15-8, which means she loses one-third of the time, with two of those eight losses coming in her last three fights. The UFC does not offer contracts to fighters who can’t dominate the talent in lesser promotions, and a fighter certainly isn’t going to see a Ronda Rousey or a Meisha Tate without stringing together two to three quality wins against top talent. Given her recent performances and her loss on TUF, being passed over by the UFC is more than justified, so stop complaining about having to prove yourself (because you haven’t). To quote Bill Parcells, you are what your record says you are. Shayna also consistently defends Ronda and her coaching, yet Ronda’s pride and open hostility of Meisha is what put her in this situation. Coaches choose the first fight to maintain control of the competition, which is a huge advantage. Rousey selected the other team’s top fighter as Shayna’s opponent when that was not the optimal fight to make for Baszler or her team…and an extremely poor decision as a coach and mentor. This point seems to escape both Shayna and Ronda as they continue to praise one another’s ability.

  • Man with average sized dick

    I wish Pena had pulled down Shayna’s tights after the submission and put the ace of spades card right up her arrogant ass.

    • whit thomasson

      Shayna’s dick would have caused an issue, and Rhonda would have really gotten jealous :) but i agree, would have been sweet. Makes me wonder why She even has this going since it has already been played out and not live. that makes her Manifesto really weird and onnoxious, even more than if we were watching live. what a joke Shayna is.

      • witless thomasson

        What a joke you are sitting on your fat ass eating bonbons while playing keyboard warrior. All your posts point towards you sounding jealous that Shayna’s balls are bigger than yours.

  • Karpok, Rider of the Wind

    Queens Army? More like a puddle of bodies in a WWI trench. What you did was embarassing to martial arts, mixed martial arts, and practically any art on the face of this earth. You weren’t up……for the fight…….for this fight……..for THIS fight? You, the one who spoke of fighting for crumbs, who got denied the chance to be a member of the UFC, even though a bum like the German Tank schtuppenschwallowed her way in, leaving you to have to battle your way through the gauntlet….and THIS is all you had to offer your “legions”???

    1) You shoved your little QoS in Pena’s sports bra.
    2) You and Ronda both laughed over how Pena didn’t deserve to be on the same show, breathe the same air, and how she ought to be attending your seminars.
    3) How could a nobody have any chance against YOU the magnificient?

    And when you were finally tapped out, you ended up deserving to breathe NO AIR, thanks to her RNC. God, fate, or karma, whatever you choose to call it, does seem to have a wonderful sense if irony, dontcha think?

    Shayna, if you are ever given another shot, please just STFU and fight. If you win, THEN you have something to smack talk about.

    • witless thomasson

      You have no clue of the mindset it takes to be a fighter. Go back to your fake ass World Of Warcraft and leave the discussion of MMA to big boys and girls.

      • Karpok, Rider of the Wind

        You have no clue to whom you are talking. You are the prototypical idiot who whips out insults from a brain that could fit into a paramecium’s ass with no problem. But then your own moniker belies your intrinsic ignorance.

          I’m talking to the typical attention whore who trolls people just out of pure jealousy. Someone who tries way to hard to impress others with knowledge they don’t have. Someone who thinks using seldom used words will make them look educated instead of being the moron tool they are…etc. = Typical American Douche Bag…

    “The most frustrating part of all of this being that all the new fans of WMMA and of the QoS will only hate because I was so confident going into this fight, it comes off as arrogant.”

    Don’t worry about that (even though soo much hate here, but I guess that’s the nature of the net) you gave really good image of yourself in the show. At least to me the confidence came out as confidence… could you imagine… and that’s something you need to step in there.

    I’ve seen your fights since EliteXC but never really recognized you more, but now I’m totally a fan. Keep up the spirit, would love to see you fighting Ronda some day. All the best.

    Holy crap. Talk about arrogant.

    “The first day of practice would be a dream for many hardcore fans of WMMA: Ronda and I just rolling.”

    “Zero ego. We rolled, we sparred, we trained. No one-upping, no
    pissing contest. Training. Two of the best females in the world just
    training together.”

    “Many out there believe I shouldn’t have had to do this show. That the
    UFC should already have signed me.”

    “I was better than all this. And in some ways, Ronda treated me as such, like a comrade and not a “student.””

    “Technique, skill set, all of it—she had nothing for me. As it turns out,
    in retrospect, one of the things that many might believe to be an
    advantage was probably my biggest disadvantage going into this fight. I
    couldn’t get up for the fight.”

    “…here it is, what I finally deserve. And I couldn’t get up??? WTF? It’s over. My shot. I still say I was the best female in that house.”

    Could your head get any bigger?… you got eliminated in the 2nd episode ffs.

        • Your Father

          It’s in a fighters mindset to be arrogant, fucktard. When the hell have you ever heard a fighter say the wasnt going to win a fight. But I’ll excuse you since you’ve probably never even been in a schoolyard fight, let alone a cage…
          Your right, it hasn’t been 5 years, but for all intents and purposes, it might as well be. News must travel slow in your trailer court…Question for you-is it possible you could think up a comeback even more lame? :)
