Julianna Pena — ‘People Want To See Me Fight Ronda Rousey’


“There’s two things — first off I think everybody could see on the show that me and Ronda (Rousey) rubbed each other the wrong way and she kind of said some choice words about me that I wasn’t really happy about, such as I didn’t deserve to breathe the same air as Shayna Baszler. I regard that as a very arrogant comment, I wasn’t happy about it.”

“Here’s the other thing — I destroyed every opponent I had on ‘The Ultimate Fighter,’ I finished everyone. A lot of the girls these days they’re going to decisions, they’re point-sparring, they’re not trying to finish each other. What they could see in me is I’m going for the kill every time. I’m trying to finish my opponents. I make it a gritty, ugly fight, the type of fight that needs to be made to hurt someone, to break their will, and to finish them.”

“I’m not naive enough to think that I should be able to jump the line. I’m not naive enough to think that my next fight should be a title fight against Ronda.¬†One thing I think people want to see is they want to see that fight. They want to see two girls who go out there looking for the kill every time and trying to finish each other. They want to see us go at it. That’s something that’s too far in the future for me to talk about right now, but it’s not my fault reporters and everybody else wants to see that fight.”


In a new interview with FOX Sports, TUF 18 winner Julianna Pena talked about an eventual title shot with current UFC champion Ronda Rousey.
