  1. It's bogus that an organization manages certain fighters while owning an organization said fighters compete in. Makes you wonder how many handpicked opponents their fighters face…

  2. To me it is very dificult to understand, a fighter portraits a nice,lovely,peacefull girl!!!,i just can't get my head around it!!,somewhere as to be something false,in her character, because fighting spirit is embeded deep,deep in the soul,….so one must be pretending to be a lovely character,when we know that in the cage's a beast.

  3. Michelle's daughter Araya… she's a gym baby. She grew up watching fighters like Dodson, Diego Sanchez, Arlovski, Jones, Cowboy, Condit, Holm etc etc train and have a go at each other every day. To her fighting is probably like for us "normal ppl" watching our parents at work at the office. Even her dad's an amateur boxer. She probably don't even understand how professional fighting is "violent" lol. To her, ees normal

    • Did u understand why Sage Northcutt & PVZ got so much hype before? They were considered attractive to the general population and also marketable. They also won their first couple of fights in UFC which helped but after a couple losses, the hype died down. It's similar with Michelle. The difference is, Michelle hasn't lost in UC yet and was also at one point generally considered the best 105er in the world. She's also recently signed to WME-IMG which now owns UFC. Conflict of interests… sure but if u wanna know why she's getting so much hype, those are the reasons
