Ava Knight is a professional mixed martial arts competitor with a record of 1-0. Like any driven athlete, after reaching her triumphant peak in the world of boxing, Knight naturally gravitated in search of new challenges in combat sports.
In this interview with MYMMANEWS, Knight touches on her transition into MMA.
“I don’t know how to do MMA, I’m learning how to do MMA,” she said. “It’s a whole different sport. I know a lot of people think boxing is fighting, and I do have an advantage in striking, but I don’t know anything so I still feel like I’m trying out the very bottom, so when I come into MMA, I want to make a big impact on this as a boxing champion.
