Biography

TRAINING: I train every day at American Top Team. I'm not working on anything too specific; I'm working every day to improve myself as a true mixed martial artist.

Thoughts on opponent, Shayna Baszler? I have a lot of respect for Shayna. She's a very dangerous fighter and a pioneer of women's MMA. I'm very excited to get back on track with a big win in Rio.

When and why did you start training for fighting? She started karate at 7 years old. Then she started boxing and training jiu-jitsu as a teenager. She made her pro MMA debut at 19. Her mother put her in karate because she was always full of energy and she wanted to do something useful with it.

What ranks and titles have you held? Black belt in jiu-jitsu, brown belt in judo. Naga World Champ in her weight and Absolute, Pan American Jiu-Jitsu Championship Gold, Mundials Jiu-Jitsu Gold, Brazilian State Jiu-Jitsu Champion

Do you have any heroes? Cain Velasquez and her uncle, Jose Alvis

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? She was studying Physical Education but is pursuing her dream and moved to the USA to train full time

What was your job before you started fighting? Never worked. Training is her work

Specific accomplishments in pro competition? She has ended all her fights by KO or submission, three of them in the first 30 seconds.

Favorite grappling technique: Mata Leao (Rear naked choke)

Favorite striking technique: Boxing Combination

• Pro since 2008

• Eight wins by KO, one by submission (RNC)

• Seven first round finishes

• Has won two of her last three

• Origin of nickname: “The logo from my first gym was two lions. I was the only female fighter at the gym, so my old coach started to call me "Leoa" for my aggressive style and it stuck.”
