Debi Purcell is an American mixed martial artist. She currently is an assistant coach to the Southern California Condors of the International Fight League.
Purcell has been involved in fitness and martial arts for over twenty years, with competitive experience in vale tudo, submission grappling, boxing, kickboxing, muay thai, wrestling, taekwondo and gymnastics. Her introduction to MMA came in 1993 during the inaugural Ultimate Fighting Championship, when she was training alongside some of the first competitors in Huntington Beach. Having taken kickboxing, boxing and JKD, she moved on to Brazilian jiu jitsu and finally vale tudo under the famous Marco Ruas, when she says "everything started to make sense".
She is actively involved in supporting women's MMA, having set up Fightergirls.net and the WMAA (Women's Martial Arts Association), along with competing herself. Her eventual goal is to develop quality competitions on a regular basis for female MMA fighters, as she discusses in a 2004 interview with TheFightGame.tv.
