fight like a megan.
Long gone are the stereotypes about fighting like a girl, especially when your name is Megan Anderson [@MeganA_MMA]. The 6’0 tall female MMA fighter from the Gold Coast of Australia joins us on this week’s episode to talk about what it’s like to be on the business side of the cage.
As Megan explains, she wasn’t always the stellar athlete growing up. But, as luck would have it, she fell into fighting and boxing after leaving a career in the army. It’s no surprise that she was able to move up in the ranks among her female opponents as she was training almost exclusively with men throughout her development.
Megan has a refreshing approach to competition day. No rituals, superstitions, or even fear for that matter. On game day, she knows that she’s put in all the work possible and views the fight as merely a sparring partner she’s never met. This work ethic and confidence is probably why she’s kicking ass in the world of MMA.
