Jinh Yu Frey: “2017 had its ups and downs, this year I’m coming with a vengeance”

Atomweight contender Jinh Yu Frey recently reflected on the year she had in 2017, promising to come back with a vengeance this year.

Frey is considered one of the best 105-pound fighters in the world.

Frey (6-3-0) went 1-1 in 2017. In July, she picked up a dominant unanimous decision win over Ashley Cummins. The victory cemented Frey’s position as the best 105-pound fighter on Invicta FC’s roster. She followed up this past December, losing out in a bid to challenge number-one atomweight, Seo Hee Ham, for the ROAD FC title, finding herself victim of a first-round knockout.

In a recent post on her Instagram page, the 32-year-old discussed her rollercoaster 2017, as well as her plans for 2018. She says she’s down for fighting at both Invicta FC and ROAD FC, and vows to come back with a vengeance. Take a look at her post below.

Well, I suppose today is as good a day as any for new beginnings. It was nice to unplug for a week and be a recluse to process and digest last weekend. 2017 had its ups and downs, but it was mostly ups. Life is bittersweet, but we couldn’t fathom or cherish the sweet without the bitter moments as well. I’ve had quite a bit of support from all of you, which helps as a salve against a lot of the vitriol out there. That won’t be my defining moment, but a milestone in my journey. I have a lot to be thankful for. She broke her arm on my deceptively hard forehead and required surgery with plates and screws. While my pride took a beating, I came out otherwise unscathed. So while she spends the majority of 2018 recuperating, I’ll be putting in the work and improving. So whether my next fight is for Road or Invicta, I’m coming with a vengeance because you know, hell hath no fury and all that.

    I love the last quote: I’m coming with a vengeance because you know, hell hath no fury and all that.
