UFC 184: Rousey v Zingano

Shots have been fired from Julianna Pena towards Ronda Rousey.

While speaking with the media recently Pena referred to the ex-champion Rousey as “broken”, and even made reference to her having “fat arms”. Pena really came out of her shell in the interview for the first time, as speaking about Rousey in less than flattering terms seems to be something that motivates the 26-year old “Venezuelan Vixen”.

The #4 ranked UFC women’s bantamweight Pena has been lobbying hard to get the next title shot at current champion Amanda Nunes, though as of yet no announcement regarding future title fights in the division have been made.

Pena is clever however, and knows that building up a future fight with Ronda could earn her a lot of money in the future, possibly more than a title opportunity would.  If Rousey really is “broken” then only 1 or 2 more fighters will have a chance to make some additional PPV butyrate money by facing one of the biggest UFC PPV draws of all time.

The division that both Pena and Rousey fight in is a mess right now. After Rousey dominated the division since its inception everything got thrown for a loop when the #9 ranked fighter beat the champion so badly she began speaking of suicide and having Travis Browne’s babies in the same sentence.

We’ve now had 3 different UFC women’s bantamweight champions since Rousey lost the belt. The division now has 3 ex-champions and 2 other fighters who have legitimate claims to a title shot. The next year in this division is going to be pretty interesting to see how the 6 top fighters fair against each other in the “banty” division.
