Do you think that you become the goat slayer when you beat the GOAT? I might be the goatslayer. I beat Amanda, and I'm going to beat Amanda again. If they want to put me in the GOAT conversation, that's fine but that's not a cap that I want to wear. That's not a hat that I feel like suits me because it puts so much added pressure that I don't want. Just call me Julianna Pena, instead, and know me as one of the best female fighters in the world.
