Reigning UFC Bantamweight champion Julianna Pena feels that Ronda Rousey ruined her legacy by moving to WWE after suffering two knockout losses. Pena talked about the same during her appearance on The MMA Hour recently.

“Ronda is so old news, right? Think that what’s incredible about her is that she opened up the door and was destroying people in 10 seconds, and became a star because she was demolishing people in the first round, and that’s great — but she got knocked out twice and never came back. So how legit is she?,” Pena said.

She further went on to address Ronda’s move to the WWE as well and said that she is ready to welcome back Ronda into the MMA world.

“She had to go to pro wrestling. And I get that and I think that that’s great. But as a fighter and somebody who is competitive, I know that — deep down — it probably truly bothers her, the fact that she went away off of two knockout losses and never came back to make her name good. If it really truly does bother her and if it gets under her skin at the end of the day to know that, you know, her legacy is kind of ruined by the fact that she never came back and never got back on the horse, then I would like to invite her to please come back — and if she would like to come back, I would welcome her with open arms.”

While concluding, Pena added a lethal blow and claimed that Ronda is kind of a joke in the MMA world now.

“That’s what I’m saying, she’s kind of a joke in the MMA world now, because she’s a — what is the word? — sellout. Like, a little bit of a sellout there. I mean, I guess I understand, right? It’s like, pro wrestling is fake, you get paid millions of dollars, I get it. But for me, for real s***, for like the ‘you’re the real, real deal,’ I would say that that’s in the UFC. And if she ever wants any of that real smoke, I’m ready,” she added.
