john76 - she's a female Chael

she's trolling to market herself

I don't think Trolls cry that hard when they lose to people they called "Not worthy to breathe their air"


She's been doing this longer than Chael and Chael cried a lot after the anderson losses. considering all the time and effort put into the traneing and the fight.. So much you put of yourself into it, emotions run high. Most here talking shit about that particular aspect never played sports let alone fought. 

 

and wtf? I should get banned for calling him mr. tate? Come on now. 

 

And Chaos, where did Shayna accuse Pena of roiding?

I think folks are caught off guard because there were about three months between when they fought and when she posted her blog. That doesn't really come across as post-fight emotion- more like sour grapes or poor sportsmanship, IMO, and one needn't have played sports or fought to see that.

BTT-RVD,

You are in the same boat as I am. I knew I would love this season but it all hits too close to home. As a coach I have been heavily involved with WMMA since the 1st hook n shoot, made all the gfight summits, trained with a lot of these girls. Hell Shayna and Tara helped my girl warmup and get ready for her Gfight tournament title bout against Barb Honchack, and gave us tons of support during rounds. I see these ladies at Invictas, and have followed them since the early years. Shayna is WAY amazing and has been there through the "do it cus you love it not cus theres money in it" years.

I feel close to these ladies, and find myself more defensive this year than EVER before on any season of TUF. I love WMMA, always have, I love these ladies. Knowing Shayna, and seeing her coming across this way hurts me. Watching Tara lose, hurt me. I made a decision that I am probably better off not posting this season. Way too involved ;)

Not even close...Chael talks crap to get a fight. Shayna just talked crap before this fight. She expressed whatever one else was thinking.

However, she did look bad losing after talking all the smack.

yeah.. I'm with you here.. Shayna I've been a fan of since 06 or so.. and a friend of since 08 or so. She's playing the heel now but she's one of the coolest most genuine people I know. Seeing all this garbage here and on her blog site, makes me angry. Once this thread dies off, I wont be talking about the season anymore.

Just caught the episode, my god.

Absolutely classless display.

Any benefit if the doubt given because of 'editing' in the show has been completely erased after reading the blog.

I want to be so much harsher but won't go any further because I don't want to fighter bash. Phone Post 3.0

recent blog is to ride the TUF exposure and play the heel

It's a smart move

Julianna looked solid BTW, good hands and decent grappling.

she was everyone's pick to win the show and lost to the #1 pick for the teams

you honestly think she's not going to get a fight in the UFC?

TUF is about marketing, the format of the show isn't the only way to get a contract

not to mention people get hurt, brought back, kicked out... etc...

Edit again.. fuck perpetuating this. I didn't post spoilers, I posted my opinion based on what I know of that chick and what I saw on the two episodes aired so far. It shouldn't take a rocket scientist to understand.

Wanted to like Shayne badly. Always rooting for someone who is both a friend of Josh and a fellow metal head. I also thought she came across as cobfident but still funny and cool in the first episode.

That all got spoiled/ read poisoned when she joined team Roussey aka "you are either with us or against us".

Miesha is a friend or at least someone friendly from the past who has been nithing but nice about Shayna but she all of a sudden does not get a mention.

Pena is the horrible one while she can across as more restrained, mature and quit frankly actually humble ( while the Queen talked shit like she was already save on her throne).

Questioning someones character after such, frankly,unexpected and slightly shameful lose is frankly classless. A lot of words that have nothing to do with fighting and the a few short sentences at the end about the actual fight.

The post should have started with" i am sorry to all my fans, i let my cockiness and overconfidence get in the way of my abilities and suffered the penalty for it". Frankly it should have ended with it as well.

Not a fan of the Queen of Spades anymore.

As for Ronda, with the crying and psycho alligations.. grow the fuck up please. You suppose to be better then that. You where right to worry about the show, its making you look awful so far! Phone Post 3.0

Again, while she did come off overly confident on the show, I personally didn't have any problems with it. I would hope that most people understand that editing can do some amazing things so people shouldn't pass judgement based solely on the site.

That being said, I honestly think that it's what she chose to write in the blog about Pena was the soak that started this fire. I think that since she dedicated a whole paragraph on putting Pena down for multiple reasons, some non-mma related but only wrote a short sentence complimenting her at the very end.....that's why many fight fans have this negative taste in their mouths now. When you piggy back how she was acting on the show with what she said in the blog, the end result is this thread and the backlash she's receiving.

Just my $.02 Phone Post

Like it or not, fans buy more than just your fighting ability when they spend their money, directly or indirectly, to watch you fight.  This claim that fans are always stupid for disliking certain behaviour is itself stupid.

Shayna talked a mountain of shit before the fight.

She went out and got dominated and finished.

She blogged about it after and still claimed she was better, saying she would beat her opponent 99 times out of 100.

These are the facts of the case and they're not palatable.  This is the very first quarter final fight and already it's a turn off.  You'd think Shayna would understand the importance of winning the fans over, given how much she tried to impress upon the audience that they'd already missed years of great product.

Her friends are, of course, feeding her the standard humouring lines most friends do.  But objectively, there's really no defending what has happened here. 

It's immature and egomaniacal and it doesn't do WMMA any favours in a time when it needs all it can get.  I don't remember the figure but I believe it was the worst debut  ever, in terms of ratings.  Ronda got more mainstream attention than virtually any fighter in UFC history for her own debut and did less than 500k buys with a solid card to back her up.

This really isn't the best time for face-saving personal bs.
