Ultimate Fighter News, Ronda, Meisha and Women’s MMA

by Bruce KiVo

Ultimate Fighter season 18…with women training alongside male fighters for the first time and “Rowdy” Ronda

Rousey’s nemesis Meisha “Cupcake” Tate replacing an injured Kat Zingano as coach, this season looks to be off the hook.

16 men and 16 women battled in 2 round elimination bouts to gain entry into the house.  Narrowed down to 8 men

and 8 women, everyone is vying for that six figure UFC contract plus bonuses for best KO, best submission and

best fight.

Veteran Tara LaRosa, once considered the best female fighter in the world lost by unan decision and never made

it into the house.

Meisha gets first pick based on Dana’s coin toss and Ronda gets first fight.  Meisha  chooses one time training

partner Julianna Pena.

Ronda’s first pick is veteran superstar, Shayna “Ace Of Spades” Baszler.

Ronda gets first fight and picks Shayna vs Juliana. From jumpstreet, Shayna and most of the house thought

Julianna had little chance, if any of beating Shayna.

Next the fighters moved into “The House”.  Some fighters got on their swimsuits and jumped into the outdoor jacuzzi.

The following day Tim Gorman discusses his views on women fighters and says morally, he could never go 100

percent vs a female fighter. “They would get hurt”.  Sara Moras and Shayna Baszler don’t appreciate the

disparaging talk and in a fun way Sarah vows to tap out Gorman in practice.

Veteran Shayna tells how her first fights were for a few hundred bucks, were held in warehouses and the sacrifices

over the past decade have paid off.  Women’s MMA is now in the UFC.

Julianna seems a bit concerned about her opponent’s experience advantage, but vows to kick her ass.

At the weigh-in, Shayna slaps an Ace of Spades card on Julianna’s chest followed by an intimidating staredown and

believes she got into Julianna’s head.

Back at the house, extremely charismatic Shayna Baszler was professing that Julianna Pena doesnt even belong in

the same ring with her, was most likely scared and should be taking her seminars and learning.

Round one, Pena comes out swinging and aggressively charging forward pits Baszler against the fence.

Baszler gets the takedown and soon winds up in guard.  Pena goes for an armbar, stands up and “Ace Of Spades”

Baszler puts her back down getting side control.  What a fight!!  Baszler tries for a guillotine, Pena rolls with it,

winds up in Baszler’s half guard dropping hard elbows and punches.  Julianna Pena seems unstoppable.  Veteran

Shayna Baszler gets a single leg takedown and r1 is over.

 

Round 2 starts with Julianna scoring a big right and then a powerful left hook.  Julianna pena is on a mission.

A stunned Shayna secures a clinch and pushes Julianna against the cage. Pena reverse Shayna and begins landing

vicious knees in the clinch.  Julianna takes Shayna down, gets her back and locks in one tight rear naked choke.

At 1:52 of round 2  Shayna taps.   What a fight.  I’m sure Shayna Baszler will be back. She is truly one of the greats

in the women’s division.

As for Julianna Pena…this girl has heart and super skills to back it up.  She may just be the next Ultimate Fighter.

Lookin’ forward to next week’s episode for sure!!
