TUF 18 star Julianna Pena: 'I made Ronda Rousey cry and I love it'

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 star Julianna Pena leaves nothing to interpretation when it comes to Coach Ronda Rousey and her opponent in week two, Shayna Baszler.

Julianna Pena is talking a lot of smack.

The only difference is, she's doing it after she fought Shayna Baszler on last night's episode of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18, not before. Unfortunately, the "Queen of Spades" did just the opposite, and is now forced to have several helpings of humble pie after being eliminated from the co-ed competition.

Pena rejoices to MMA Fighting:

"For them to say things like, I don't deserve to breathe the same air as Shayna, or, I can't hold a candle to anybody she's fought -- it just really backfired. If she's not going to be a little more humble in the future, maybe she should. Because I think, personally, she looks extremely stupid. It should make her take a little piece of that humble pie and shove it down her throat.... Enough with the gimmicks. I'm not buying it. There's no magic in a cage fight. So she can go ahead with her little aces of spades and shove it right up her ass... Right after that fight against Shayna, it flipped a switch. After that Ronda was a nightmare. She just couldn't stand the fact that I took out her No. 1 pick. And yeah, it made her cry. That's great. I made Ronda Rousey cry and I love it."

Pena submitted Baszler in the second round in a battle of number one picks.

Following her victory, Coach Ronda Rousey was in tears, lamenting her inability to succeed as Baszler's coach before, during and after the fight. Meanwhile, the gang over at Team Tate was all smiles in the wake of their upset, something that sent the "Rowdy" champion overboard.
