Tonya Evinger made it quite clear to Brendan Schaub that she wasn’t too keen on his remarks about her, via Twitter. I’m pretty sure Schaub meant his words to be complimentary to Cris Cyborg. However, they came across very derogatory towards Evinger and she wasn’t having any of it.
Before the fight began between Cris Cyborg and Evinger, Schaub posted this:
Anyone else feel sorry for Tonya Evinger before this fight even begins? 😕 #UFC214

Again, I imagine that Schaub was trying to say that Cyborg is a terrifying woman. Evinger fought her ass off and ultimately lost the fight. Going through her timeline today she saw the tweet and took exception to it.
It was probably just a miscommunication, but Evinger shows that she takes no guff from anyone. Her hard stance on things is what makes her such a fan favorite, to begin with.
