Carla Esparza has fired back at Claudia Gadelha’s attempts at trash talking during a recent post on Instagram.
Esparza (13-4-0) spoke about the post during an appearance on MMAJunkie Radio.
“She’s always been like a big trash talker and we’ve had our Twitter wars which came from nothing back in the day. Up until recently, she’s either talked shit about me and stuff on her Instagram, like calling me names and all these things about me.
“Even just last year, out of nowhere, talking crap about me and then right now I think she called me a dumbass and another post where she called me a little girl. It’s just her trash talking, I didn’t say anything about her I was ‘Yay, this fight is finally going to happen,’ and she was just like this, this and this, ‘see you in Chicago, you can’t run anymore dumbass.’ So I’m just like alright. You know, if we didn’t have USADA in the picture, I’d call roid rage.”
The bitter rivals will finally receive the opportunity to fight each other at the UFC 225 pay-per-view event on June 9.
