Pena commented about Rousey to TMZ Sports after being asked about Rousey's return. She also said Amanda Nunes is waiting for a "money fight" against Rousey rather than fighting Pena.
In a new interview with MMAJunkie, Pena clarified her comments:
“I think a lot of people have forgotten how rude and how much of a bitch she was to me on the show and the way that she treated me personally,” Pena said. “Those are things that I don’t forget. She’s disrespected me, and she’s disrespected my coach on the show. They ask about her all the time – ‘is she coming back, is she coming back’ – and I don’t know. But I would love to introduce her back into the division if she is, because that’s been a fight that I’ve been trying to get for many years now.”
I think it was the wrong choice of words,” she said. “What was in my head didn’t come out exactly the way I wanted it to through the media. I’m not trying to call her a fat person – I was basically commenting on how the media is always asking about her, whether she’s training or not, whether she’s coming back or not, whether she’s having that giant’s babies or not, and it’s so annoying at this point that I’m just like, forget about it. The buzz has died.
Got that? Nobody cares about Rousey...yet this nobody wants to fight her and has for years. Brilliant.
