Dana White reacts to Julianna Pena's 'disgusting' knee injury, tells 'Venezuelan Vixen' to leave her gym following two-year timeout

The plot thickens in regards to Julianna Pena's devastating knee injury that may, according to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White, keep "The Venezuelan Vixen" on the sidelines for two years.

Julianna Pena has sustained a horrific injury to her knee, forcing her to withdraw from her bout against Jessica Andrade at UFC 172.

And according to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White, the recovery process could cost her two years of her budding mixed martial arts (MMA) career.

He had a little message regarding her future:

How disgusting? Pena suffered tears in her ACL, MCL, LCL, meniscus and hamstring.

Ouch!

Pena is a member of Team "Sikjitsu" in Spokane, Wash., and while fight fans are left guessing what White is insinuating by his cryptic Tweet, deductive reasoning suggests that something must have gone terribly wrong at the gym for "The Venezuelan Vixen" for her to tear just about everything inside her knee.

UFC lightweight Michael Chiesa, who trains with the 24-year-old The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 winner, wanted to remove his name from any brewing controversy, thus adding to the question of how the injury actually happened.

In addition, Team Sikjitsu coach Rick Little sent White a response on Twitter:

Pena was apparently the victim of her own enthusiasm, training three times a day and jumping into a mid-day grappling session without properly warming up. How that translated into a mangled knee is unclear at this time, but expect more facts to surface in the coming days.

One thing is for certain, this weekend's UFC 169 media scrum has just gotten that much more interesting.
