PROFILES & HIGHLIGHTS
Q & A
Who or what inspires you?
I am inspired by many things. What motivates me the most is myself and proving I can do something that others do not think is possible.
What do you do in your spare time, when you’re not preparing for a fight?
I am a very energetic person and I train year round, so I am always staying in shape. On my days off I try to catch up with friends and family, travel and be an extremist.
If you were describing yourself as a fighter, what would you say?
I still feel like I am identifying myself and the type of fighter I am, but so far I can safely say that I am a striker with a mean ground and pound.
What does it mean to you to be fighting for Bellator Fighting Championships?
It’s a dream come true! Right now Bellator is the NO. 1 in woman’s MMA. The fact that they want me to fight speaks volumes to me because they want me to represent them. I wish to have a long career with Bellator and be a pioneer in the front running of Women MMA.
What are your thoughts on the Tournament Format?
I really like it, but it can be intimidating. The pro is that it’s a great way to build diversity into a division, but if you lose, it can be tough to get into another tournament. One punch and you could be done.
What would it mean to you to become a Bellator World Champion?
I did not get into this sport just to be good. I decided at the very beginning of training MMA that I want to be the best. I can’t begin to tell you what it would entirely mean to me because I don’t think there’s a word to describe my excitement.
In 3 years, where do you see yourself?
I plan to still be fighting at the elite level with many successful victories behind me.
Which victory are you most proud of in your career?
I am very proud of all my wins, and even my defeats. I would not be the fighter that I am without those moments, but I have to say I don’t have a specific moment yet.
Are you married and do you have any kids?
No to both, my training is my main focus in life. Kids are great but not on my agenda right now.
What is your message to aspiring fighters that dream of fighting on a big stage?
To not to be afraid to take a chance.
What’s the one thing you are most proud of that you’ve accomplished so far in your life?
I am most proud of my dedication to MMA. I moved away from my family, friends, and relationship to focus strictly on my career. I never knew I was capable of such discipline. It’s enough reason to make me smile.
How did you get into fighting and when/where was your very first pro fight?
I truly just fell into fighting. I met some people who were training at Strongstyle and introduced me to Marcus (owner/head coach). I only went down there to get into better shape, then the fighting just happen. I fell completely in love with it. I had my first pro fight here in Cleveland, Ohio against Amanda Lavoy.
In a perfect scenario, what would be your favorite way to end a fight?
A clean right hand KO.
