UFC Women’s bantamweight champion, Julianna Peña joins The Pivot and is ready to set the record straight with Ryan about who the champ really is after Peña pulled off the win against Amanda Nunes.
“I’m here to say ‘I told you so,” to Ryan for picking against me and saying I didn’t have a chance,” Julianna first says as she sits down. Channing and Fred ofcourse egg on the banter and tell Ryan they might not be able to help him if she tries to fight him.
Ryan admits he was wrong but that his UFC prediction was influenced by being a longtime fan of Amanda and he is sorry for shit talking her as an opponent.
Learning more about Julianna’s journey to the top of the sport, Fred gets into her background as well as some of the legal troubles that she faced while coming up the ranks. “I only fight to get paid, no more street fights,” she jokes with the guys.
Channing is amped up as he hears the fight in her and how much passion she has for being the best in the cage and her approach to being a professional athlete.
The conversation moves into motherhood and relationships and the challenges facing female athletes to balance both the personal and work side of the sport.
Preparing for the rematch in early summer, Julianna says how she still will approach the fight and training as if she is the challenger with a target on her back to be dethroned as the champion.
