Shayna Baszler Talks Strippers, Drunks and more TUF 18
Not sure if this is the right sub forum but here you go....

1. Did you participate in any of the little princess makeovers or fashion shows that Julianna Pena was organizing? Shayna Baszler - We were at practice when those things were happening, just Team Tate was at the house. So we didn’t even get to witness it first hand, we would come back from practice and hear all of the stories. I couldn’t believe that Raquel Pennington was doing that, she is the last person that would be putting on high heels and a dress. So yeah no, luckily I didn’t even have to make a choice of whether to participate. I think more than anything it showed you how desperate we all were in the house for any kind of entertainment. 2. Did Dennis Hallman hand out shorts from his personal collection for Team Tate fighters to wear at practice? Shayna Baszler - [laughing] I am sure you are talking about the sparring session they showed on the episode were Cody Bollinger is wearing some very colorful volleyball looking shorts. He actually stole them from Sarah Moras, she had an entire wardrobe of crazy colored and patterned compression shorts, and he stole them and showed up at practice like that to surprise everyone. So no they didn’t come out of Dennis Hallman’s personal collection but I like your thinking.

A sponsor opens up about the reality of backing UFC fighters
The biggest check Hans Molenkamp ever wrote as an athlete sponsor was to Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson for a fight with James Thompson in the now-defunct EliteXC organization. Molenkamp won't say how big that check was, of course. But surely it was worth it, right? Ferguson, after all, was near the height of his popularity as a street brawler and YouTube sensation turned MMA fighter, and he was headlining a card on CBS, the biggest broadcast platform to date in the U.S. The answer is yes. But that success, like so many things in the fight industry, proved fleeting.
