Claudia Gadelha says: Carla Esparza weak fighter who makes excuses


Due to a lack of fights which is now causing financial burden, former UFC strawweight champion Carla Esparza recently stated that she is selling the motorcycle that she was awarded after winning the Ultimate Fighter Season 20.

If anyone is interested, I am selling my 2015 Harley Breakout that I won on The Ultimate Fighter 20 “A Champion Will be Crowned”. Brand new (bc of my shoulder surgery), purchase price was $19,799. Going with highest bid OBO. It’s very unfortunate that I am selling this bike not because I want to, but because I HAVE to in order to make ends meet. After having a year off from shoulder surgery (injury obtained at UFC 185), taking a short notice fight, and then 8 months since that fight, I literally have enough in my bank account to pay for 2 more months of bills. I need to fight and have been asking for a fight for so long, multiple times a week. I know I can make my run again but I also know that after being off for so long that I’m not ready to fight a title contention fight right away and all I’m being offered is the #1 contender (whom I’ve accepted and been scheduled to fight 2x in the past). I’m 100% down for that fight. I just asked for just one non-title contention fight with an actual camp after having so much time off from injury and the result is being benched for 8 months and still no word of a fight, not even a whisper. I’m at a loss of what to do. When I make my run, my intention is to WIN not because I’m being forced to when I’m not ready. Just frustrated and sad 🙁 if anyone is interested in buying my Harley or knows someone that might please contact me at carlakristen1010@gmail.com

Two time UFC strawweight title challenger Claudia Gadelha does not feel any sympathy for the former title holder. Gadelha went to social media to post the below message:

“What a weak fighter Carla is. She doesn’t want to fight the best, she makes excuses so she can get an easy fight.
I want to be the best. For my last fight, I asked to fight the best in the division. Unfortunately she don’t feel in the same way. Carla and other names in the division turned down the fight. I was left with no other option than Cortney. I took that fight with the promise that if I won, I would fight Carla. Now she is still refusing to fight me.
You want money little girl? Step in the octagon and fight. I have the cars I want, 2 houses and money in the bank at 27 years old. You know why? Because I accept challenges. I fought twice in the last 6 months and I didn’t choose none of my fights and I will never choose. I lost my fight for the tittle with pride and I was not waiting for a easy fight to get back in the win column. I was out for a year before fight for the tittle and you are talking about 8 months out? The first thing I said when I talked to the matchmakers was: Please give me somebody on the top 5!! You can find excuses and run but you won’t disappear, I will see you soon.”

A matchup between the top ranked UFC strawweights has long been talked about but has yet to happen. The two were set to fight at Invicta FC 7 but but the Brazilian was forced out of the bout at the day of the fight due to a bacterial infection. Will we see the pairing in 2017?
