Shayna Baszler is set to face Sara McMann as the main event at Invicta Fighting Championships 2. Bloody Elbow recently conducted an interview with her. The highlights included: She's spending a lot of time training high-level wrestling, Shayna loves to hate Ronda Rousey as the Strikeforce Champion and reminds her of a wrestling heel. Also Shayna believes that she is more mature now and will be able to stick to the gameplan of her coach.
The most important point I took from the interview is that she's spending a lot of time practicing wrestling. Her biggest problem in her fights against Cyborg and Sarah Kaufman was that she could not get the fight to the ground, this meant she was not able to work her BJJ. Many of the older BJJ fighters have failed to improve their takedowns and takedown defense which either means they get beaten in the stand-up or laid on by a wrestler. It'll be interesting to see how much Shayna has improved when she competes against an Olympic wrestler.
