Julianna Pena more than willing to show Ronda Rousey who is the bigger UFC bully

How do you defeat a bully? You learn to become one yourself, according to "Venezuelan Vixen."

Julianna Pena recently had some strong words for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, blasting the queen of mixed martial arts (MMA) for her "ignorant" comment toward Arianny Celeste.

And now, the Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 winner has some more words for "Rowdy," as "The Venezuelan Vixen" tells Submission Radio that if she ever finds herself locked inside the Octagon with the Judo specialist, she'll be ready to give Rousey a taste of her own medicine by being the bully.

And not just any bully, but the biggest of them all who refuses to be broke prior to the fight.

"Where I would hold the advantage is that I would not be mentally broken before the fight ever started, which I feel is sometimes to me - in my opinion - what seems to be the case with these other women that are facing her. They already look dead upon arrival when they're in the cage with her and I refuse to be shaken. I've been bullied my whole life and I just feel like she's been a bully, and I feel like in the sense that I'm the bully and I'm a bigger bully than she can imagine, and I think that I would also have the advantage in the sense that I'm not afraid wherever the fight goes."

Getting defeated before the actual fight is a real thing, according to this recently-crowned champion.

Rousey has been seen as bully for different reasons.

In Pena's view, she labels the champ as such for picking on UFC ring card girls with zero fight experience, while others tag "Rowdy" with that reputation for absolutely obliterating the competition inside the Octagon.

But, there seems to be a bigger bully in town ready to take over named Julianna.

Before she gets a chance to earn that title, she must get through her first challenge inside the eight-walled cage in more than 1.5 years, as she she faces Milana Dudeiva at UFC Fight Night 63, which is set to pop off on April 4, 2015, inside Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia.

With a win, she inches herself closer to a future showdown with the "bully" on the block.
