Her father wanted her to participate at a top fight club, where her older brother, daniel, had trained for the first few months at repton.

But it is a fear.
Uh fiercely contested division, so she’s not concerned about competing, but uh.
You know it’s holding some of the top fighters in the sport right now that division and uh she knows it’s better, so yeah yeah, it’s uh.

I was reading a great story about it and um, and you know what guys go out it’s in her blood.

I believe i read something like that that are yeah some something ridiculous, that it’s uh, that it goes back.
She goes far back in well, hang on, hang on, didn’t you say: she’s english, her 20, okay, so and they’ve had pubs since his ancestral links with the sport date back to the 18th century has played a huge role in helping her stay focused.
