Biography

TRAINING: Wake up, do a 3-5 mile run, shower, then get ready for work.  After work, come home, cook dinner, make sure my son is doing homework, then head out to train for three more hours. Come home, eat, sleep and repeat.

Thoughts on opponent, Bethe Correia? Bethe will be a tough opponent, but aren't they all at this level? It's going to be a good battle. 

When and why did you start training for fighting? I wanted to save money for my son’s college tuition.

What ranks and titles have you held? IBJJF world purple belt champion
 
Do you have any heroes? My parents
 
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means that I’m now a bad ass.
 
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? UCLB – BA in Sports Medicine
 
What was your job before you started fighting? I’m currently a high school teacher
 
Ranks in any martial arts styles: Brown belt in Jiu-Jitsu under Cleber Luciano and light blue/dark blue belt in Muay Thai under Master Rafael Cordeiro.
 
Favorite grappling technique: Guillotine
 
Favorite striking technique: Straight-hook-straight
• Pro since 2010

• Four wins by KO, two by submission (armbar, triangle) – has finished all but one of her wins

• Has won 6 of her last 8

• Four first round finishes. Owns 10-second knockout of Lydia Reyes in 2012

• Origin of nickname: “I began my training as the only female in the gym. I was wild…I think I still am. Anyway, no matter who I rolled with, I ended up giving them a black eye, bloody nose or bruised testicles. So they called me the Bruiser from then on. On occasion, these incidents still take place. (Laughs) By pure accident, of course.”
