After Sanchez / Guida, the most interesting fight of the weekend for me is Shayna Baszler vs Sarah Kaufmann. Sure, it’s pretty obvious that Shayna is gonna destroy Kaufman … but seeing her work her earthy blend of jiu jitsu magics gives me a stiffy bigger than the one tattooed on Brock Lesnar’s chest.
Ariel (test nickname: the little merMMAid? Eeeh, that sucks) has an interview with her today where he asks her about all sorts of stuff: Kaufman, Cyborg, EliteXC, Cyborg, weight, Cyborg, and something else about Cyborg. I think someone is in looooooove:
I wasn’t going to bring this up, but since you alluded to it, what did you think when “Cyborg” blamed “female problems” on missing weight prior to her fight against Hitomi Akano in April?
Here’s the thing about that: before the fight, in her interviews and stuff, she’s like, ‘I just want to show that women can fight just like the men.’ And then after the fight, she gets on the mic and says crap like that. And the thing about that is that all of us have to deal with the same female problems. So that’s a garbage excuse … That’s really all I have to say about that. It’s a piss-poor excuse that’s, like, trained in guys that when that issue is brought up, it’s like, ‘Ok. Cool. That excuses everything.’ It gives us a reason to throw tantrums for no reason, gain weight and not make it, and they don’t question it. You know, like, culturally, if you know what I’m saying. So, if you say that, it’s like a cop out. It’s like a ‘get out of jail free’ card.
So there you go, guys … straight from a woman’s mouth: periods are just an excuse and next time your lady friend tries to be a bitch because she’s oozing ovum out of her private parts for seven days a month, you just look her right in the eyes and tell her to put her damn mouth in park.
