Julianna Pena has been in the news lately for her comments. She put out her views about former UFC champions Khabib Nurmagomedov and Ronda Rousey recently and had attracted some heat from the fans. And now, the UFC Bantamweight champion has given her take on Kayla Harrison re-signing with the PFL.
Speaking on The MMA Hour, Pena accused Kayla of talking big and not backing it up.
“How easy it is? Talk about WWE wrestling, how easy is it to say, ‘I’ll beat Julianna with one arm tied behind my back,’ and then sign a (contract) to PFL right after the next day? It’s easy to talk sh*t when you know nothing’s gonna happen from it. So, that’s my whole angle. It’s like, Kayla’s just running her mouth because she knows nothing’s ever gonna happen of it, you know?, Pena said.
She further went on to add that Kayla will be making her career of Tomato cans.
“She just signed her life away to PFL, so best of luck with that, I hope it’s—make your career off of beating tomato cans. That’s great… Here’s the thing though, I understand it! Make your other milli. What does she make, $2 million with them? Make your money, girl! Do your thing,” Pena added.
Kayla had earlier noted that Amanda Nunes would pick up a win over Pena if a rematch happens between the two and had also opened up about a potential bout with Pena. However, Kayla re-signing with PFL means that she will not be able to compete in the UFC for potentially another year.
