But she wants to prove herself...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, strawweight Carla Esparza (9-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC), former champion of Invicta FC, said that she is dreading staying at the house of The Ultimate Fighter 20. Here are highlights:
On not being treated differently because she was a champion: "It never even crossed my mind. It doesn't bother me to have to prove myself. I'll go in there. All the girls are legit, and to me, it's just a great opportunity."
On being just another fighter: "I feel like they're taking care of me and they appreciate me as a champ, but at the same time, I'm going in there like everyone else. I'm going to have to fight like everyone else, and I don't mind that."
On hesitation for going into the house: "I'm excited, but honestly, that's a long time to be in a house with 15 other girls."
