I am feeling really strong, fast, and ready for the Pan Am games next week. Even as I go about my weight cut (I am dropping to 56kg) my energy is great. In the gym I am lifting strong, kicking high, and punching explosively. When you have to drop weight for a fight it is […]
I wanted to get this post out last week and instead the holidays had me joyfully hanging with family, training, and not eating Thanksgiving with all the trimmings. It is the week before fight week. Anticipation is running high for me as well as a scramble to get in the last bits of training, set […]
I got my visa! Plus some hard days of training in. AND I am really hungry. I would kill (probably a good thing) for a beer and some onion dip from George & the Dragon, a vanilla latte and chocolate croissant from Bull Run, and whatever delectable treats Nikki has cooked up at her deli this […]

I am headed to Brazil for the Pan American games in December and I am in love and looking forward to promoting all of my sponsors over the next 5 weeks.
So I am seriously pumped and excited for the upcoming Pan American Games. After an incredible downer with a broken toe (in two places) and canceling my Belfast title fight I am excited to finally be back in the gym and training. This isn’t to say that my toe feels 100% but I am raring […]
Let me tell you, it feels amazing to win. Thank you for all your support, it means the world to me as well. I only wish you could have seen it! But you can see the belt here…with dessert.
