Former TUF 18 contestant calls Miesha Tate 'disgusting,' threatens to 'knee her in the cooter'
think it's safe to say that veteran female mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, Tonya Evinger, had a rough couple of days as a short-lived contestant on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18. In addition to losing her opening round elimination fight to Raquel Pennington, a submission defeat that kept her out of the famed TUF house, "Triple Threat" had to rub elbows with head coach Miesha Tate, a "disgusting bitch" who continues to "dig her own grave" everywhere she goes.

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.
