Namajunas spoke about the controversy again, this time with TSN’s Aaron Bronsteter. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ “There was nothing personal against her or her trainer or anything like that. It really has nothing to do with her. These are all my internal battles and internal struggles. And yes, I might have a few little triggers here and there and maybe generational PTSD. Literally, I was just talking about myself, my background and The Other Dream Team and, yes, I certainly didn’t mean to speak to him. I mean, every opponent that I face, I face my own fears, face my opponent and my opponent stands in the way of my dreams and so these can be, yeah that’s just the mentality that I go with after a fight and that has nothing to do with her as a person. ⠀ ⠀ Namajunas was also asked about her family’s history during the time of Soviet rule. ⠀ ⠀ “I had one of my ancestors who was a knygnešys, as a person responsible for keeping the Lithuanian language alive. There was also my great-great-uncle who survived his sending to Siberia and came back and he ended up being one of the first groups of cardiologists in Lithuania. And then he wrote this whole family history book about all the different things that happened with our family and then, you know, and my dad also refused to be and fight for the army of the Soviet Union and he was placed in a mental institution. instead because he refused. So, you know, it’s a shame that this is what people have had to go through, but at the same time his stubbornness and unwillingness to accept oppression is a big factor that explains why I am so stubborn and sometimes I It can be hard to coach you know, but that’s also what makes me such a strong fighter and it’s something that I carry with me throughout my career. “⠀ ⠀
