When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training Judo when I was eight. It was just for fun, but I started to win a lot of titles. I always had Ronda (Rousey) as an inspiration, and one day I was watching the UFC in the house of a friend and her dad knew Helios Moyano, the leader of 011 MMA Team. He made the introductions, and I entered the MMA world.
