    On behalf of @KOfinger - What do you think of the idea of dropping to the Strawweight division?

    i have a question, given that youve moved around so much, do you think changing camps helps or hinders your training, do you have to unlearn things picked up at a previous gym, and does it affect consistency? thanks

    How do you think you match up with Joanna Champion? Were do you think you could potentially beat her? Im sorry for my peers sad responses.

    I think you look to small to be at BW.

    Serious two part question...

    Is there any particular aspect of her game that she wants to evolve going into this year that will elevate her to that next level, and what did she take away/learn from her last fight about herself and her progress as a fighter.

    You are short for a bantamweight (there are atomweights fighting at Invicta FC at your height). When you agreed to fight Evans-Smith on short notice, being smaller no doubt helped with making weight without much preparation time, but was it your plan all along to use the fight as a stepping stone to the UFC's strawweight division? What do you see as your ideal weight class? If the UFC opened a 125 lbs division, would that be where you'd want to be?

    First of all, I hope I never see you lose like that again. Almost made me cry. My question is: Who would you favor in a fight between Ronda Rousey and Cyborg?

    Hi Veronica, my question is:

    What motivated you to become a fighter?

    Also, a bit of a personal question but, do you have portuguese family? Your name is vey common in my country Portugal and i saw that you visited it.


    Best of luck to your next fight ;)

    Q: If you were offered the choice of a title shot right now at either current WMMA weight class which one would you take, JJ or Nunes?

    Hi Veronica.

    How much striking have you learned over the years and do you think you'll be prepared to keep it standing against an opponent with great takedown defense and BJJ?

    Second question (might've been asked but I'm not bothering to look): Do you have any ambitions/personal goals outside of fighting and winning a UFC championship?

    Question: if someone is good looking, well traveled and has ambitious goals, does he have a chance to take you on a date? :)

    Question: If you had a choice to fight either Cyborg or Nunes at a catchweight, who would you choose?

    To Veronica:

    What would you say is your favorite fight of all time? And what was the first fight you saw that made you want to get into MMA?
