    I have been no fan of Shayna's so far, but that was very cool of her to go to Roxy like that afterwards

    Both are veterans of the game, and while both made it on the show, neither lived up to their expectations. Shayna knew exactly how Roxy felt.

    I know all that, but it was still really good to see
    I haven't seen much from RR's side & nothing from RR or Shayna remotely like that this season
    I guess a lot of it had to do with Rox rooming with the 4 from RR's team too

    I don't think that changed much. Shayna and Roxanne have been friends way before being TUF roomies.

    Yep, it showed a good side that she did not show yet in TUF

    I did not know that, but it makes sense
    I still think the room situation helped

    I'm pretty disappointed that neither of these 2 veterans of the game, despite professing that it was their career-long dream to fight in the UFC, were unable to bring the basic level of conditioning required to be a UFC fighter. Both won the first round of their fights and gassed badly at the end of the first round and never recovered. Roxanne, after winning the first round of her fight could barely make it back to her corner and was still sucking wind and gasping for breath after the minute-long break. Miesha Tate knew she was already finished and when she begged for "one more takedown", Roxanne looked like she was being asked to run a marathon. It was obvious that in that condition, she was going to be picked apart by Jessica's striking, and she was.

    Shayna is just fighting for screen time at this point.

    Okay no, but seriously, I don't get this mindset that Shayna has where she's a pioneer of this sport and that she's grouping Roxanne as one too.

    They keep holding on to this "I'm better than you because I've been in it longer" attitude, which is really costing them. Neither has a place in modern mma, and are clinging on to the past. Sad, really.

    Roxanne didn't walk around telling everyone she was better than they were because she has fought for so long. As a matter of fact, she doesn't seem to talk about it all but rather other people talk about it for her.

    Shayna did a bit of that but it's likely a coping mechanism aimed at maintaining and building up her ego internally. Also, fighers need to have a bit of that "I'm better than you" edge...if they didn't think that, they wouldn't fight.

    They both need to work harder for sure with conditioning but "modern mma" hasn't left them behind if they dont' choose to be left behind.

    Shayna definitely but to be fair to Roxanne I didn't get that attitude at all from her. Roxy looked like shit but she also has over 25 professional fights and a winning record so this "she has no place" attitude by sherdoggers is really stupid. Armchair coaching is a little over the top with this one.

    How was it cool what she did, she just went "We've been here so long we deserved better". That's just par for the course of her feeling entitled.

    If you read carefully, you will see I wrote that it's Shayna who thinks that way, and that I didn't speak about Roxanne's thoughts at all.

    You specifically said "they" and the only two names you referenced were Shayna and Roxy.

    They seem real close in the house and fought before it was nice to see them support each other in that way. I thought Rousey or Tate team members would start a battle afterwards complaining about spying or fight matchups.
