TRAINING: I train anywhere from 2-4 sessions a day. It’s a combination of MMA, Jiu-Jitsu and conditioning.

Do you have any heroes? My parents 



What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means the world to me. This is what I've been working for since I started MMA six years ago. My goals are to fight on the biggest stage, become world champion and build my legacy as one of the best fighters in the world. 



Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I started college but didn't complete it. Life hit me hard and led me here! 



What was your job before you started fighting? I had a regular 8-5pm office job.

Four-time amateur champion, #1 ranked female amateur fighter in California for two consecutive years.
