What kind of support do you have from the male fighters? Do you get treated any different?
Every male fighter that I have run in to they completely support it. Especially at the gym they support it. We’re all a family there and they don’t look at us like teammates and not girl fighters. We train right alongside them and we bleed and we sweat along with them. We train along side one another.
Did you have any trouble finding footage on Lacey Schuckman? Some of the other female fighters have said they had some trouble because of the smaller number of female events.
That’s the great thing about technology today really. Thankfully, you can just Google someone by name and get what you need. As far as difficulty of getting information I try to worry about what I can do to her and not what she could do to me. If I focus on my strengths I will expose her weaknesses. What she can do is outside of our body and what we can control. Whatever we have control over is what we can make work for us. That’s where experience comes in to play. Sometimes you have to learn from experience.
So what can we expect when you and Lacey meet?
We actually both kind of started off around the same time. We’re from the same area, but we were fighting in different weight classes. Everything has always been good with us. It is very cool to see everything come full circle and now we’re fighting on a big show and it’s a big challenge for both of us.Tags: "bj Penn", featured, Invicta, invicta fc 3, Michelle Waterson, mma, MMA NEWS
