In July this year, the 29-year-old fighter tested positive for the banned steroid mesterolone after her victory against Christina Linardatou. Baumgardener was quick to defend herself and iterated her innocence, opposing her suspension from the sport. Even though her private drug test came out negative, it wasn’t enough for the sanctioning bodies. Eager to bag her next match, she has turned to social media.

At the tail-end of the montage, she noted to a person on the phone who asked her to be more diplomatic, “Ima talk my shit then we gon run the fade,” signaling that she’s going to get her fight her way. Fans were quick to acknowledge her efforts. One fan was impressed with what she had to say, along with an intimidating workout snippet.

Expressing her bewilderment at why Baumgardner would call on her out for a fight, Shields noted, “And last time I checked, I always told people I wouldn’t fight Baumgardner cause we cool as hell, and I feel that same way bout Mikaela. I’d never fight Mikaela, she’s my Olympic sister. I’m just tryna figure out when did @alyciambaum decide she wanted to fight me?”
