Former UFC star blasts Squid Game after ‘bad’ treatment

Former UFC competitor Ashley Yoder a recently made headlines by revealing her participation in ‘Squid Game: The Challenge’. It is a British production series inspired by the popular Netflix show ‘Squid Games.’

In an Instagram post, Yoder disclosed her unexpected experience while taking part in the reality series. Her revelation shed light on the scripted nature of the show and the harsh treatment meted out to contestants.

She wrote: “Yes , I was on Squid Game: The Challenge.. I was player 332 .. and after weeks of interviews and anticipation it wasn’t until after I stepped foot into the UK hotel they kept us in the at I knew something was off.. this whole show was pre determined and they treated the majority of the cast really bad.”

Contrary to her expectations, the reality show’s scripted nature and the unfavorable treatment of contestants left Yoder profoundly disappointed.

Before her foray into the realm of reality television, Ashley Yoder amassed an 11-bout stint in the UFC. Her UFC record stands at 3-8, while her MMA record stands at 8-9.

Notably, she faced established names in the division, like Mackenzie Dern and Angela Hill. She lost both of her matches against Hill.

Yoder’s UFC journey commenced after securing a decision victory against Amber Brown at Invicta FC 20: Tony Evinger vs. Yana Kunitskaya. Her debut at UFC Fight Night 102 against Justine Kish resulted in a unanimous loss. Subsequently, defeats to Angela Hill and Mackenzie Dern via unanimous and split decisions followed.

Her first UFC victory came against Amanda Cooper via a split decision. She followed it up with a unanimous decision win over Syuri Kondo. However, this winning momentum was halted by consecutive losses to Randa Markos and Livia Renata Souza.

A breakthrough came when Yoder ended her losing streak with a dominant performance against Miranda Granger at UFC Fight Night 182. Regrettably, subsequent losses to Hill, Jinh Yu Frey, and Emily Ducote marked the end of her UFC career.
