Whats the naughtiest thing you have done?
I swapped my English teachers chair for a broken one at school… but it was ok she found it funny in the end after face planting the floor.
Would your close friends say you were a FLIRT?
Maybe a little bit.
What puts a smile on your face?
Cook me a big juicy steak medium rare with blue cheese sauce and a jam and cream scone for dessert and I’m smiling.
Now on to the MMA
What MMA events have you been a Ring Girl for?
Shock N Awe
How did you get into being a Ring Girl?
My best friend Lexi Boldry asked if I wanted to work with her. I had never watched a fight in my life so it was pretty amazing to be so close to the action.
Are you a fan of MMA?
I’m a massive fan of MMA! I love watching the fights and I also train at Gym01 Fitness and Martial Arts in Portsmouth.
What was the first MMA show you watched?
My first time was watching it live at Shock N Awe 1
Who is your favourite fighter and why?
Callum ‘little country’ Jones! As well as having an amazing body he is a brilliant fighter! James ‘Power Weasel’ Pennington is pretty awesome too!
So are you a lover or a fighter then?
I’m defiantly a lover not a fighter but I will always stick up for myself if need be.
Most fighters have nicknames. If you HAD to have an MMA nickname, what would it be and why?
I would be called ‘The Choker!’ because that’s what I like to do when I’m play fighting..
Many of the UFC Ring Girls have gone on to pose for PlayBoy Magazine would you?
Hell yeah! That would be amazing… Not too sure if my dad would be so pleased though!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I’m usually at Gym01 or out with my friends dancing the night away but if I’m not out on the town you can usually find me snuggled up in bed with my cat Mr. Tyson and a special someone…
Thanks for your time, do you have any final words?
A huge shout out to Gareth Johnson & Brian Adams at Shock n Awe for putting on the best shows and to the beautiful Lexi Boldry for just being amazing. Also thanks for the kind words from my fans xx
