“I was surprised (she took the fight). I guess Casey the promoter for Showcase MMA. He had reached out to quite a few people. And people with even better records said ‘no’ but she said ‘yes’ So much respect to her for taking the fight. I know having the accolades I have can be intimidating. But you know fighters fight, so respect to her for that.”
