Marnic Mann has plenty of attributes that don’t typically apply to a cage fighter as she is five foot tall, very nice and shy to those that don’t really know her.
With all of that being said, don’t let any of that fool you, because as soon as the cage door closes, Mann is as tough as they come.
So far to date the Montana native has had four amateur fights and five professional fights and she has yet to lose a single bout. Not only is undefeated, but she has also finished nearly every opponent she’s faced.
In her last two wins, Mann was able to get the job done in a major UFC feeder promotion in LFA and those wins got the attention of the UFC matchmakers.
Due to the all of her success, the UFC asked Mann to participate on Dana White’s Contender Series for a chance to earn a UFC contract and she accepted. Now Mann will head to Las Vegas on Sept. 13 to take on Bruna Brasil where she’ll look to get a win and impress UFC president Dana White to give her a contract.
Prior to the fight, Mann spoke with MyMMANews to discuss her upcoming matchup with Brasil, the MMA scene in Montana and all the success she’s had in her career.
