Fight of the Night


TRAINING: I live and train in the most serene place in the world. It’s a 20 acre "fight" ranch which is surrounded by a 40 acre lake complete with everything I need to train on the highest level. From agility fields to state of the art wrestling rooms, Muay Thai pavilions and even housing for incoming training partners. Because I’ve been able to eliminate the commute between gyms, it’s allowed me more time for both training and resting with my family because we rarely leave the ranch. Monday through Thursday, I do cardio from 8-845, strength or agility on alternating mornings from 845-945, Muay Thai from 10:00-1200, 12-1 free roll, rest for lunch 1-330, then back at 330 for MMA until 530. Friday is my rest day. Saturday is a half day - open bags and ring for heavy sparring. Sunday is a half day - open mat for three hours of gi training.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training at age 20 in 2009. I was a waitress in a sports bar and was constantly exposed to the UFC events shown there. Having always been the rough and tumble tomgirl type, I was fascinated. As my interest grew, I found a gym and a trainer and I never looked back. What a fateful decision.

What ranks and titles have you held? I am the former Legacy Fighting Championships Flyweight champion and recently defended my Legacy Fighting Alliance world title. I am also a six-time Invicta FC veteran. I hold a black belt in Kyokushin, a brown belt in Judo and a BJJ purple belt under Relson Gracie. I am also a Kru in Muay Thai under Ajarn Buck Grant and Master Donny Aaron.

Do you have any heroes? I don’t have any individual heroes, I guess. But I do look up to the heroic efforts of our servicemen and women and the first responders more than any one person.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? The UFC is where I’ve always wanted to be and it’s where I feel I belong. I am a warrior and I want to test myself against the best on the biggest stage in the world.

What was your job before you started fighting? Waitress
Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? As an amateur I was 9-3 in MMA. I won several regional titles along the way. I was also a three-time Muay Thai World champ through the IKF and TBA. I was a two-time North American champ through the WKA. I won two state Golden Gloves boxing titles, two regional Golden Gloves and 1 Women’s National Golden Gloves. I am also a two-time Naga World champ and a two-time North American Champ

Origin of nickname: “Before you ask, it’s not a political statement. KGB came originally from my coach and the guys picking on me in the gym saying I look Russian. It kinda stuck but not until the 2014 Muay Thai world Championships did it really get roots. A Russian team coach saw the KGB on my shorts and asked my coach Donny if I was Russian. He said no and then the Russian coach exclaimed "WHY KGB THEN ?!?!" He was pretty agitated and I didn’t know what was gonna happen. Donny just said "SHE looks like a Russian chick, man.” He looked me up and down and said, "She does," then walked away. We fell out laughing. After I won the world championship that year the whole Russian team came up and took pictures with me. it was a great feeling and KGB has since been my brand.”
