What do you think will be the biggest challenge you will throw at your opponents in this tournament?
I’m just a very cerebral fighter. I’m going to show them their cards. I’m pretty scientific in this. So I think that’s probably the biggest thing that’s going to give my opponents, my competitors a hard time. Like I said, I kind of force them to show their cards and I’m pretty good at forcing a reaction. Because a lot of my competitors see the black belt, they get a little nervous when they see the shot coming and things like that. Yeah, I got plenty of good stuff in my back pocket.

You’ve faced many UFC veterans and even got a win over UFC flyweight Miranda Maverick. Do you see this experience giving you an edge over your opponents?
Yeah, not just Maverick, but my whole track record since I started pro has been nothing but dumb. I’ve never taken a fight knowing I can’t win it. I have my coaches to thank for that. They have really prepared me for success since the beginning of my career. My debut was against someone they called “the Korean zombie woman”, Yoo Jin Jung. She was supposed to beat me. Since then, I’ve faced the best of the best. I rubbed shoulders with the best attackers. I faced the best grapplers. You know, I beat black belts when I was a tiny little blue belt. So, I’ve had a lot of confidence wherever the fights take me.
