Women’s MMA fighter Felice Herrig recently told Combat Lifestyle the story of how she snuffed UFC President Dana White’s phone calls, because she didn’t know who was calling, and sending him to voicemail. She eventually just handed the number down to her manager who tracked the unknown number back to White.
“It was Dana White, and I ignored him… four times…” said Herrig during an interview with combatlifestyle.com.
White was contacting the standout kick boxer and former Invicta WC straw weight fighter to offer her a place within the UFC.
“He told me they selected 11 girls to be on the next cast of the ultimate fighter, of TUF 20, and I am one of them. So, start filming that May 18th”
The first ever all- women season of “The Ultimate Fighter” is set to begin filming this year in which the ladies will be competing for the inaugural UFC straw weight title, and now we can look forward to watching Herrig fight her way to the top while in a house with women bent on her destruction.
Herrig started fighting at the young age of 18 and is currently 9-5 in her professional career. She is a charismatic young woman and is sure to be entertaining both in and out of the cage.
