Jamila Sandora, a former MMA ring card girl and model makes her Pro MMA debut this Saturday when she takes on Juliana Araujo at New Corpore Extreme 9.
Sandora tells us the reason she decided to trade ring card duties for fighting “It was just the adrenaline of watching the fights, I wanted to put it in action“. She is confident she will emerge victorious “I’m training a lot, I challenge myself everyday because I really trust my potential“. She reveals she prefers to exchange on the feet, rather than go to the ground and has her eyes set on the newly created 155lb belt “the moment my coach says I’m ready”.
The former ring card girl has high hopes for 2017 with a win against Araujo on Saturday “With the win I believe that the best will come in 2017. I just need to close the year with this key win, and start 2017 on the right foot”.
