Biography

TRAINING: A typical day of training for me is driving all over New Jersey and New York to train with the best in boxing, jiu-jitsu, MMA, wrestling, and strength training.  I train a very regimented 15 sessions per week with one day a week rest.

When and why did you start training for fighting? Everyone from the team I come from in South Jersey trains all year, regardless of fights. I don’t really believe in the term “fight camp.” I am a martial artist that is always training to get better. This fight was two weeks’ notice for the both of us but I was planning on fighting a five-round fight in the beginning of August anyway, so I am confident in my preparation. Overall, I started karate when I was four years old. I began fighting as an amateur in MMA in 2012 and turned pro in 2014.


What ranks and titles have you held? I was the Cage Fury Fighting Championship (CFFC) flyweight and banthamweight champion. I also won the PA Golden Gloves when I was 16.
Do you have any heroes? I really look up to a lot of my teammates such as Edson Barboza, Marlon Moraes, and especially our kind of team captain, Frankie Edgar. I look up to them not only because of their extremely hard work ethic and success in the sport but more so for how they carry themselves as humans outside of the gym. Since I started, I’ve always tried to mimic and learn from them.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? I am stoked. I think me and my coaches aren’t surprised because this is just one more step towards reaching my goals.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I got my BA in Business Management/Marketing form Fairleigh Dickenson University in Teaneck, NJ

What was your job before you started fighting? Since I graduated, I’ve been bartending, working nights so I can have my days free to train with the rest of my team. I also teach Women’s BJJ.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? I was 7-0 as an amateur, winning three regional titles…. PA Golden Gloves…Renzo Gracie Brown belt in BJJ.

Favorite grappling technique: any Del La Riva sweeps
• Pro since 2014

• Two wins by KO, one by submission (Armbar)

• Two first round finishes

• Owns wins over Sijara Eubanks and Brigitte Narcise

• Origin of nickname – “It’s just my IG name and it stuck with me. More people call me that than Katlyn.”
