Shayna Sharpshooter

“The Queen of Spades” Shayna Baszler and Roxanne “The Happy Warrior” Modafferi have long been staples of the women’s MMA scene, though they got significant exposure on season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter. Because Roxanne is the best person in the world, they became friends, and now, training partners. Since Roxanne spent several years in Japan, it’s only natural that she would have picked up several secret techniques of the ninja, as seen in the first part of the video. Baszler, the Arn Anderson of the Four Horsewomen of MMA (Arnita?), handles the pro wrestling side of things with Sharpshooter.

Of course, this isn’t a shock considering Shayna Baszler has been training with Josh Barnett for a long time, and he’s about as steeped in pro wrestling as any mixed martial artist gets. For reference, here is one of his open workouts from his stint in Strike Force (No, he did not team up with Tito Santana and Rick Martel to form a trios squad).
