Shayna was on the JoeTed radio show alongside Tara LaRosa and a good time was had by all. Here’s Shayna Baszler’s thoughts on the Gina Carano / Cris Cyborg fight:
“I’ve fought Cyborg so I know that Cyborg has a way of getting into your head for some reason. I talked to Gina the next day and there’s something that makes you feel like nothing you do is gonna work so you just start doing things you never do like rolling leg locks for instance, Gina, and you just … I dunno, not really fighting, you’re just going through the motions. Maybe it’s the height of the show or the title or whatever it is. I think Gina lost her head. I don’t think it had anything to do with cardio or Cyborg being so awesome or hitting so hard. I think Gina just lost her head.”
There’s a whole bunch of other conversation surrounding that fight plus Cyborg in general. I didn’t make it through the whole thing because I barely have enough time nowadays to bathe myself let alone listen to hours of radio, but from what I heard the show was surprisingly entertaining. Then again, how can it not be when it’s basically Shayna and Tara geeking out happily on women’s MMA?
