Biography

TRAINING: Conditioning in the am for an hour. Boxing in the early afternoon for a few hours. Later on, wrestling for two hours. Other days, I will switch boxing to grappling.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I was 22 or 23 years old. I loved wrestling but couldn’t continue on with it, so fighting was a second chance for me to take something I love as far as I can.

 
What ranks and titles have you held? #1 at 115lbs in WMMA in Canada, Ontario Open Absolute Title Belt, Joslins No Gi Title, Grappler’s Quest Title, National Wrestling Bronze Medal
 
Do you have any heroes? My mom is my hero.
 
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Fighting for the UFC is a dream come true. I am a hard worker who never had a break, and it goes to show you that as long as you believe in yourself and keep following your dreams, even your craziest dreams can come true. Being in the UFC is my dream but I have a much bigger one now and that is having that belt around my waist.
 
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I attended Trios College and earned my Pharmacy Assistant Diploma.
 
What was your job before you started fighting? I’m still currently working full-time as a Pharmacy Assistant, on top of training and fighting.
 
Specific accomplishments in pro competition? I won my first pro title on March 8,
2014. I was crowned the first ever 115lbs WMMA champion in Canada.
 
Ranks in any martial arts styles: Blue belt in BJJ
 
Favorite grappling technique: Passing to side control, and laying heavy.
 
Favorite striking technique: I love working my jab, an underutilized technique still today in MMA, in my opinion.
• Team Pettis on TUF 20
