Ronda Rousey recently made her return to WWE and has been involved in a feud with WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair. ‘Rowdy’ made a crossover to WWE from UFC and has never looked back. Now, the current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Julianna Pena has expressed her desire to fight Rousey.
Julianna Pena challenges Ronda Rousey
Pena had won the championship back at UFC 269 in December, defeating Amanda Nunes. She expressed she always wanted to fight Rousey. Julianna Peña spoke with Sports Illustrated and made it clear that she wants to fight Ronda Rousey. Not only Rousey was the first female to sign with UFC, she was also the promotion’s first UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.
“That has always been a fight that interests me,” Peña said. “When Dana White allowed women into the UFC, he just handed Ronda a belt. She didn’t have to compete, she didn’t have to do anything. He just said, ‘Hey, welcome to this promotion, here’s this shiny belt.’ After he gave her the belt, she had to fight Liz Carmouche. At that point, I’m on The Ultimate Fighter. I wasn’t fighting one person, I had to fight four people. When I came out as the winner, I was ready to face Ronda.”
Rousey had parted ways with UFC after losing Nunes in 2016 at UFC 207 and she signed with WWE in 2018. This fact has bother Peña that Rousey never came back to avenge her loses. However, she said she’ll always be here in case the former UFC champion wants “the real stuff”:
“It bothers her that she left on two knockout losses, and that she never came back to avenge those,” Peña said. “If she ever does get an itch to avenge those losses, I would love the opportunity to compete against her and fight her. I don’t think that that’s going to happen. Let’s face it, she’s a star. She’s killing it in the WWE, and she can make a ton more money doing what she does over there instead of doing the real s—. But if she wants to challenge herself and come back to the real stuff, I’ll be here.”
