Wherever Julianna Pena Lives
Julianna Pena once had a promising career as a cage-fighter but then she got pregnant. With a lifetime of nothing but bare-footedness and kitchen cleaning and turkey cooking and snotty nose blowing, Pena has most of her future set in stone. But, the Venezuelan Vixen (ugh…) was also once a UFC mixed martial artist and as such many of her fan(s?) are wondering what’s next.
Lucky for all of us, MMAFighting.com is here with the best headline of all time:
Pregnant Julianna Pena explains decision to put UFC career on hold, timetable for return
Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m curious as to why the pregnant Pena had to put her steel cage fighting career on hold. Total fucking mystery.

They then proceeded to pull quotes from an interview done with Pena, let’s do the same.
I think the most important thing for me is, this is the very first time that I’m having my first baby, and I think that the bonding that you make with your child within the first year is so important, and I don’t want to be rushing so crazy back to the sense where I’m like, it’s selfish, in a camp where I’m like, ‘Screw you, baby. I’ve got to get in the Octagon and go get in a fistfight.’
Whilst the official position of HG is “screw you, baby,” I do admire her maternal instincts.
I think things just started to fall into place. Once you deem yourself worthy and you find yourself in a good spot, and then you find a man that is worthy of you — things just kinda fell into place that way and I fell in love, and I just think that it was the right timing for me.”
Do note that she’s only engaged, not actually married. No, it’s not 1923 and society is more accepting of out of wedlock children (also known as: bastards) but don’t tell me it all fell into place if you’re engaged and having a kid because that’s a lie. A bit, fat, pregnant lie. Why do you get engaged? So you can get married. No one thinks, “Dating, pregnant, engaged, birth, marriage.” That might happen, and that’s fine if you’re ok knowing a guy like me can truly call your child a bastard, but this shit did not “fall into place.” That’s a huge lie and she’s a liar.
“It wasn’t something that I was wanting to divulge to the fans,”
She said on a podcast wherein she’s telling the fans. After talking to Not-English People Magazine.
“If you think about it, in like four days, I’ll be in my seventh month of pregnancy. And so I think that they didn’t know that I was pregnant, and then in three more months I’ll be popping out the baby, and then I can get back to business as soon as I get the whole motherhood thing and working out schedule down pat, and get back into shape, and then get back into fighting shape and a fight camp. So I think it’s just one of those things where I didn’t want them to think that I was going to be out forever now that I’m having a baby.”
- People do know that babies take
nineten months and not forever.
- Again: no one would’ve known if you didn’t go out of your way to tell them. I doubt that Ariel or whomever flew out, knocked on your door, shimmied up the downspout when no one answered, and then finally tracked you down to the nearest Target where he found you holding a onesie; you picked up a telephone and said, “Hello.”
The child will be known as “Isabella.”
