Biografia

TRAINING: Morning session - CSW pro practice with Erik Paulson/Josh Barnett. Depending on the day, the team works live drills on each other, followed by sparring of different modes. Immediately following practice, I will do pad work/mitt work with the coaches while I'm still warm from training.
Recovery between sessions consists of my new favorite thing, CryoTherapy. The three-minute blast of cold air in the cryo tube helps me bounce back after beating my body up in practice.
Evening session - Depending on the night I either have a strength and conditioning workout in "the dungeon" (The name we gave the garage/alley at our house) or one of the advanced grappling classes at CSW. The classes are a bit more technical and give me a "lighter" session. The dungeon workouts usually consist of soul crushing Thai pad rounds with Kaitlin Young, pushing cars up and down the alley and confusing the neighbors, or seeing which kettlebell complex I can crush that week.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training when I was 19, and I had my first amateur MMA fight after four years of training. I trained just because I loved it for a long time, but once I realized that there were opportunities for women to compete in the sport that I loved, I decided to pursue it full-time as a career.

What ranks and titles have you held? Associate Instructor in the Thaiboxing Association of the USA and KY State Director, Purple Belt in 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu

Do you have any heroes? I look up to so many fighters and find inspiration in their stories and why they fight, but my mom is absolutely my hero and one of my biggest supporters. Because of her, I strive to become a better person to make her proud of how she raised me.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Fighting for the UFC means fighting at the pinnacle of my chosen sport. My goal has always been to become the best in the world, and that means fighting for the UFC, so to finally have this opportunity means everything to me. Fighting is my life. It's the number one priority in my world and it's the only thing I've ever been passionate about. The UFC is the greatest platform on the planet to compete in mixed martial arts in, and it fills me with pride to know that I finally get the chance to perform on that stage.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Yes, I graduated from EKU with a degree in Fitness and Wellness Management

What was your job before you started fighting? I worked lots of part-time jobs before I began to pursue fighting full-time. I did everything from work as a gas station
attendant, wait tables, managed a liquor store, I was a loader for UPS, and eventually I started doing personal training, taught private lessons, and I even taught BJJ to preschoolers.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? World Muay Thai Association (WMA) Welterweight Champion, Tuff-N-Uff Featherweight Champion, AAMMA Featherweight Champion

Specific accomplishments in pro competition? Before TUF, all three of my professional fights were under the Invicta FC banner. I have always been proud that my professional debut and career began there and then ascended into the UFC.

Favorite grappling technique: Choke submissions are my favorites. Long arms and long legs make it easy to wrap up my opponent’s neck, and I specialize in a variety of chokes with unique set-ups and finishes.

Favorite Striking technique: The clinch and the knees. However, I've recently developed a strong affinity for my left hook and I believe I can knock out anyone in the division with it if I land it solidly.

• Team Rousey on TUF 18

• Pro since 2012
 
• One first round finish
 
• One win by KO, one by submission (armbar)
 
• Had 5-2 amateur record – defeated Phillips via submission (guillotine) in 2012
