What up my UG homies?? :) A feature story on my MMA journey, weight loss & Invicta Fighting Championships debut was aired tonight on a mainstream television program during prime time!! This is obviously awesome for Australian MMA which is still struggling with negative preceptions in this country... but also awesome sauce for WMMA & myself!! The story ran on "The Project", which is a hugely popular night time show here & featured footage of my home life, training life & fight with Carla Esparza.

It's easily the most positive & exposed piece that the media has ever run on MMA here so I'm absolutely stoked :) Big ups to both Nick Johnson & Arron Pegson for capturing & uploading this for me... they are actually forum members here as well!! Enjoy & looking forward to entertaining you all in April :)

Edit: I guess I can let you all know now that I'm fighting 5-0 Jasminka Cive from Austria at IFC 5 :)

Some people are assholes and envy anything positive that other people do. Fuck the haters, they're just jealous that things are going good for you....... Phone Post

LOL!! Wish the feature let you see who voted you down. I'd be pretty confident I could guess 2 of the 3 :)

I'm from Brisbane too, but missed the project special. To be honest, I initially hated wmma. It represented the fairer sex being brutally ko`d and bleeding. I did fear that mma constantly walks on a knifes edge with regards to mainstream acceptance, and imagery of a beautiful girl being brutalized on live TV would kill the sport for everyone.

However because of rousey and you, I decided to purchase the invicta ppv. I was very impressed.. Your intent to engage with clean hands was an eye opener.

Good story considering they shit-canned MMA last time and went the 'human cock-fighting' angle. Phone Post

I am very interested to watch the evolution. Will the wrestling threat drop your center of gravity to prepare for TDD? Or should the natural striker further develop her kicks and evasion? As an Aussie observer, wrestling bothers me.
