Angela Magana walked into the Octagon at UFC 218 looking for her first victory in a professional MMA fight since the former United States President Barack Obama’s first term in the White House.
That victory would not come for the female strawweight fighter, who recently took to Twitter to claim that her loss came because she isn’t of the opposite sex.
I need to walk in the cage with a banana in my shorts and a crew cut then maybe the ref will let the fight go. Men can fucking tap out from strikes get hit and the ref wont stop it till 7 shots later after near death expierence #equalrightsinfights #letthegirlstakebeatingstoo— Angela Magana (@AngelaMagana1) December 3, 2017
Amanda was fucking bashing me & overpowering me, I wasnt rocked still moving was completely aware I immediately sat back & bitched at ref. Heard my corner yell out I had less than 30 seconds. I was thugging it out hoping for a 3rd & have a chance back on my feet again. #ufc218— Angela Magana (@AngelaMagana1) December 3, 2017
In no way by wanting another round am I taking anything from Amanda, in fact her dominance of me could have been far worst I just wanted that opportunity to let that transpire and have another go #ufc218— Angela Magana (@AngelaMagana1) December 3, 2017
As for haters will you ever have Bruce Buffer announCE your name? Or Jon Anik & Rogan aknoweledging improvement in your stand up? Have Rogan talk about how incredibly tough you are be entertained & amazed by pure will to struggle out of a choke? No you won't & that's why you hate— Angela Magana (@AngelaMagana1) December 3, 2017
Magana’s last win came in August of 2011, when she defeated Avery Vilche by first round submission at Clash In The Rockies: The New Generation.
Prior to coming to the UFC in 2014, the fighter had notable wins over UFC veterans Jessica Aguilar and Barb Honchak, plus wins over Invicta FC veterans Lynn Alvarez and Nicdali Rivera-Calanoc.
