Miranda talked about how people try to troll her for her muscles and call her a dude. She also talked about how they call out a woman, even for being a professional fighter.

I know for myself I’m trolled a lot. Always have been. I have muscles, I’m a dude. Win a fight, must be a man. Don’t fit feminine stereotypes, obviously I’m a male. Not coated in makeup every pic, eww.”

Maverick talked about how sometimes these trolls get to her, although she knows whether the things said are good or not and if she needs to take them seriously. She just knows what she was born to do, and her concentration is always towards that.

Dark truth: that crap gets to me sometimes. Reality: I was built to do what I do. The comments you make, good or bad, are just helping my algorithm.”

The post that Maverick put out there shows us just a fraction of the negativity these fighters have to deal with. Maverick, however, gave a fitting reply to all these fans who tried to troll her and her boyfriend.

Newsflash:I have a loving boyfriend who’s better looking than all you punks commenting vile shit. You’re probably too much of losers to ever get a girl playing keyboard warrior for some sick way of feeding their own insecurities.”

I have amazing genetics, and I’m proud to have the muscle mass I do. If you think it’s ugly, quit looking at it.”

What Next For Maverick

Maverick competed at UFC 260, where she faced Gillian Robertson, Maverick won the fight via decision.
