Biography

TRAINING: I train twice a day - strength / conditioning or technique striking / grappling, and in the evening I do live rounds of sparring.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training fighting when I was 19 because I had wrestled in high school and was looking to take my ambition to the next level. What better way to do that than to get in the cage and fight your heart out?!

The Ultimate Fighter season 18 coach.

Do you have any heroes? None

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? For me it means I'm one of the best in the world and I'm thankful for the opportunity that the UFC gives to the talented women in MMA

I attended Central Washington University, no degree

What was your job before you started fighting?
