I initially started fighting to lose the last 20 something pounds that I could not get off. I knew if I had a reason to get it off, I would actually try. I was told if I fought at 150lbs, I would be fighting very big girls ( no offense to the 150lbers out there!) I am 4’11’’ so I was told to get down to 120-125 lbs. When I weighed in for my first fight, I weighed 126lbs. I was so excited to see those numbers.
