Biography

TRAINING: I wake up and do what I love, living my dream, seeing myself win, and then I go to sleep.

Thoughts on opponent, Ji Yeon Kim? She is a well-rounded fighter with a serious sports history background. I don’t underestimate her, but there is going to be one winner: me.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started MMA in January 2015 because I saw a Hungarian MMA female fight and I was not satisfied with the level, and I wanted to show that a female fighter can be as entertaining and technical as males. I’ve been doing martial arts since the age of 12. 

What ranks and titles have you held? Competitor of the Year 2015 - Hungary

Do you have any heroes? No, I am my own hero. 

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? I'd like to belong with the world's elite fighters and develop myself on this path as a fighter and as a person. Being a pioneer, I want the UFC come to Hungary and bring attention to the talented Hungarian fighters. 

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to university for Sociology - I only have my dissertation to hand in to get the diploma.

What was your job before you started fighting? Swedish Customer service representative, and Swedish IT helpdesk agent.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? Two-time Kempo World Champion IKF
