You're pretty hot, how do you think that you will be represented by American media?
Well thank you, haha. I don’t know because if I look to Gina she’s really well-known. She’s got two strong points that I do not have, ha, so I don’t know. I don’t think they will see me like Gina because I really think she’s a really pretty girl, maybe they—I’m like an average girl. I think, that will be, you know—a lot of girls can relate to Gina, she’s really pretty with her big breasts and her cute face and I’m more like average I think uh, yea maybe from the old world, I don’t know exactly. I want to fight for a couple more years and then I wanna become more—what I want in the end is, I want to be in the Netherlands at least; if I can be in America that would be great, I can only dream of a thing like that. I want normal girls to relate with me and I want normal girls to realize that they are capable of way more than they think they can.
Kyra Gracie: If she was to transition into MMA, how do you think it would go?
To be honest, the last time in ADCC when she was fighting, I really was bored because she’s got too much Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu style, you know like a turtle. What I really like, if you see Megumi Fuji fighting also in grappling, they’ve got a really Japanese style. It’s like “doing this or doesn’t work out then I do this” it’s got a really high pace. And what I saw it was like 2 times 10 minutes and the only thing she—it was against an American girl; a really sweet girl—she’s very famous also –135 um, oh I forgot her name but she’s really famous, haha. She also competed in 2007 and she was fighting her and the only thing, Kyra got a really good position then she knew she got points but she didn’t do anything anymore for the whole fight, so I’m not too impressed by her to be honest. But to go into MMA, I think she really has to learn to fight like a fighter and learn how to strike.
