Strawweight & Michigan native Amanda Bobby Cooper or ABC as she’s known to fans–it’s one Bad Lady.
Fighting since she was 12, ABC has risen through the ranks of Mixed Martial Arts-from amateur to lower MMA circuits to the elite UFC. She was featured on the FS1/UFC hit “The Ultimate Fighter”.
Amanda is a dangerous fighter. Not only is she an excellent striker, (2x Golden Gloves champ) but she had a strong background in Jiu Jitsu and wrestling. Cooper’s next fight will be against Angela Magana at UFC 218 December 2 here in Detroit. ABC has promised to smash her in the first!
While training, I was able to snag her for a quick round of questions.
BJJ or wresting?
6 months ago i would have said jiu Jitsu but lately I have been in love with wrestling.
Burpees or suicides?
I would rather do burpees than suicides
American or Lafayette?
Detroit VS Everybody or Detroit Rock City?
Detroit Rock City
Submission or Knockout?
And of course knock out
If you can’t catch Amanda’s fight in person you can watch in UFC’s FightPass-a must for fight fans!
