    hello, do you think psyching an opponent out before the fight plays a big part in getting a win?
    how far ahead of a fight will you stop strengh and conditioning, given the weight cut.
    also can you give carla a good dig from all of us at sherdog? kthanx

    Hi Randa!

    Would you be interested in competing in grappling tournaments during or after MMA? Things like IBJJF, EBI and other grappling organizations

    Hi Randa!
    Did you happen to watch Invicta FC 21 yesterday?
    If you were Celine Haga would you appeal the decision that you lost the fight with Montenegro (who seems to have been unconscious at the bell).

    Out of all your opponents you've fought which fighter was physically the strongest? Also, who is the hardest hitter you've faced?
