  • Podcast: Baszler, Kaufman, Mitchell, Gonzalez By: Staff

    TJ De Santis and Jeff Sherwood returned to the Sherdog Radio Network on Wednesday for another edition of “Beatdown.” Joining them on this edition of the program were UFC women’s bantamweight fighters Shayna Baszler, Sarah Kaufman, former UFC fighter David Mitchell and Fernando Gonzalez.

    Women’s mixed martial arts has been a focal point for the Ultimate Fighting Championship for the last year. Two longtime veterans, Baszler and Kaufman, joined the program Wednesday to talk about the long road to the Octagon, where they feel women’s MMA would be without champion Ronda Rousey, and what they expect from one another in their April rematch.

    Mitchell all but struck out of the UFC going 1-4 on MMA’s biggest stage. He has since changed training camps and looks to rebound this Saturday night against Gonzalez at West Coast Fighting Championships 8. Both Mitchell and Gonzalez join “Beatdown” at the exact same time. The two welterweights discuss their fight, how the believe it will go down, and if this is a fight that will usher Mitchell back in to the UFC conversation or launch a relatively unknown Gonzalez in to the radar of MMA prospects.

    De Santis and Sherwood have been away from the SRN for a week. They get caught up with MMA current events, chat about the upcoming UFC card which pits Lyoto Machida against Gegard Mousasi, and recount some shenanigans from the road.

  • Shayna Baszler’s Hit List: Pena, Davis, McMann, Rousey By: Staff

    Shayna Baszler, on “Beatdown,” discussing her UFC goals:

    “There’s a few things I’d like to get done in the UFC. I want to show everyone. Of course, Julianna [Pena]. I want to have my rubber match with Alexis [Davis]; that’d be nice. Somewhere in there there’s a rematch with Sara McMann that I would be interested in, but ultimately, my goal is the same as anybody’s that goes into the UFC. I tell Ronda [Rousey] every day that I am coming after her belt. In the end, whatever path leads me to a fight with Ronda, before she gets sick of armbarring people, is the path I want to take. Everybody else is just a body waiting to be broken.”

  • Despite Becoming Friendly with Ronda Rousey, Shayna Baszler Still Wants to Fight Her By: Staff

    Shayna Baszler, on “Beatdown,” discussing her relationship with Ronda Rousey, who coached her on “The Ultimate Fighter”:

    “We’re friendly and everything, but I don’t think she takes any offense [that] I told her the whole season that I was going to see her across the cage one day. We actually joked about the epic trashtalking battles we could have with each other. She knows and I know, and I think again, it’s something only as a fighter you’d understand. I think the fact that we are friends means that we’re going to try to beat the snot out of each other even more so than before.”
