    From MJKolhoff on Twitter:

    I was just wondering from your perspective what part of your fight game were you most proud of? As a fan I was impressed by your improved footwork, your cardio outlasted Carla's, your grappling was super impressive, but what were you most proud of? Thx again.

    Why did you decide to become a fighter? And how old were you when you started MMA?
