Quote of the Day: Shayna Baszler Talks Cris Cyborg's Female Problems

20080725044010_img_3205_medium

"Here's the thing about that: before the fight, in her interviews and stuff, she's like, 'I just want to show that women can fight just like the men.' And then after the fight, she gets on the mic and says crap like that. And the thing about that is that all of us have to deal with the same female problems. So that's a garbage excuse ... That's really all I have to say about that. It's a piss-poor excuse that's, like, trained in guys that when that issue is brought up, it's like, 'Ok. Cool. That excuses everything.' It gives us a reason to throw tantrums for no reason, gain weight and not make it, and they don't question it. You know, like, culturally, if you know what I'm saying. So, if you say that, it's like a cop out. It's like a 'get out of jail free' card."

-- Shayna Baszler talks to AOL FanHouse about Cris Cyborg's excuse for not making weight against Hitomi Akano. The Queen of Spades takes on Sarah Kaufman tomorrow as part of the Strikeforce Challengers Series.
