Interview with Laura Turzenski above
It’s fight week for Laura Turzenski and she is in a very good spot at Roufusport MMA Academy to be as prepared as possible. Turzenski is learning from some of the best coaches and training partners the sport has to offer as well as her boyfriend Lenny “the Gorilla” Rufati, who has been providing moral and emotional support as well as quality workouts. Turzenski was very impressive in her amateur debut as she finished her opponent in the second round with a triangle choke. Now she makes that walk to the cage for the second time looking to continue to learn and advance in this very grueling sport.
MyMMANews spoke with Laura to see what she took from her first contest and how she is about to face this next challenge. She says…
“I love this lifestyle. I love training and fighting and have embraced this grind and having a partner (Rufati) who pushes me and will help me in any way possible has made this something that I love and testing myself is really rewarding. My first fight, I kind of rushed right in and did take some shots and this time, I’m going to be more patient. There is no rush, but I also have to be prepared for anything once that bell rings.”

The story of the fighter is what Bob loves about the sport. From the lowest level, to the highest, he only cares about the two warriors who do battle once the cage doors close. Everything else is secondary. Without their blood, sweat, and tears, he would not be here enjoying every minute.
