Emily Whitmire explains post-fight lash out at Vinny Magalhaes

Right after Bruce Buffer announced her name as the winner by unanimous decision, Emily Whitmire walked over to Vinny Magalhaes in Jamie Moyle’s corner to call him a “piece of s***” and flip him the bird.

Whitmire, who captured her first UFC win versus Jamie Moyle, spoke to MMA Junkie after the fight to explain her distaste with Magalhaes.

“He’s one of my teammates. I talk to Vinny a lot at the gym, he’s one of my coaches from ‘The Ultimate Fighter’. [And] he told me multiple times that he didn’t want to corner against me after he cornered against me with Roxanne (Modafferi).”

She continued, “He told me like four times that he wasn’t going to corner against me with Jamie, because Jamie had asked him to corner her. None of us knew until we showed up and we saw him getting off the bus, and I just thought it was a real shady move by him.”

Whitmire was a flyweight cast member on season 26 of TUF. She lost her flyweight debut via submission to Gillian Robertson. She has since dropped to the strawweight division where she competed against Moyle to pick up her first UFC win.
