Kaitlin Young: "I did feel disrespected..."

Kaitlin Young: "I did feel disrespected and put in a really bad position"

On Caranao not making weight...

"I was really hoping she would make it. I was hoping who she was hanging out with at American Gladiators, being that a lot of them are into bodybuilding, that they would give her some tips and she would come in on weight. I was a little surprised. I think sheís gotten a lot of flack for other situations when she didnít make it or was close to making it and maybe on it if she hadnít been wearing clothes. I was really surprised that she allowed it to happen."

On her performance...

"I didnít feel like I was having a real hard time with her weight in the clinch or anything when we tied up, but you know, who knows? Maybe there was a little extra oomph on her hands (laughing)."

"I think I landed a couple of good knees, but her being experienced in Thai Boxing, she was able to get out of those situations. She was good about getting out of bad spots on the ground so maybe if we wouldíve stayed there longer, but I donít know."

"No, I didnít really feel super nervous, but I almost feel like I was too relaxed. It was like I was trying to be too relaxed and I overcompensated. I think maybe that happened a little bit. I donít feel like I was at my best and Iím not quite sure why."

On the CBS EliteXC card...

"I think they were really reluctant to show blood and gore, which is sometimes unfortunately a side effect of our sport. I do think that had a lot to do with why some fights were stopped and why certain things were shown and not shown to the viewers at home."

On why she went through with the fight despite Gina not making weight...

"I would hate to be the one that chose not to fight her. I have a hard time believing that Elite would want to use me on any large card again even if I did fail. They gave me a little bit of enticement with the percentage of Ginaís earnings as well. It would have been silly for me not to. If I had all of the money in the world and I knew I could get some other big fights, maybe I wouldíve because I did feel disrespected and put in a really bad position..."

She talks more about Carano, her peformance and her future plans, including a return in October or November, in the full interview:

No because Hughes knows he's just being outclassed these days.
