August 2012 MMA Babe of the Month – Vanessa Hanson

Our August 2012 MMA babe of the month is current Strikeforce ring girl and model Vanessa Hanson. This 21 year old stunner is 5’8”, 115 lbs., measures 34-24-35, a mix of Mexican, German and Norwegian ethnicities and calls California home. Vanessa has ring carded for both Strikeforce and UFC, appeared at the UFC Fan Expo and festivities and featured in a recent issue of Fight! Magazine. We recently caught up with Vanessa for the interview below as our August 2012 MMA babe of the month.

How did you get into the world of MMA?

-Last Summer I won the Transworld Surf/UFC Model search at the US open. I got a chance to be the guest octagon girl for UFC 136 and the rest is history!

What were you doing before you became an MMA ring girl and model?

-I was a college student. I started modeling around the age of 19-20.

Who are your favorite MMA fighters?

-I've definitely enjoyed watching Ronda Rousey fight! She's a babe and a bad ass.

What are the strangest and sweetest comments MMA fans have said to you?

-When I was doing a lap around the octagon, someone shouted at me, "I want you to have my abortion!" Nothing thus far as topped that lol.

What would your fight name be if you were a fighter? Vanessa "?" Hanson

-Hmm maybe Vanessa the Vamp? I have a definite obsession with vampires and anything supernatural. I love how naturally sexy and enticing they are.

What is something most people don't know about you?

-I'm a huge tom-boy and always have been. I'd gladly drink beer and play video games over watching chick flicks and drinking wine or shopping.

What are your hobbies and how do you spend your free time?

-I'm a giant foodie. I love trying new foods whether it's eating at different restaurants or cooking new meals. I'm also a big outdoors person. I love going camping and hiking and being near the water. I enjoy the simple things in life most.

Are you single?

-Not currently!

What do you look for in a guy?

-I look for a guy with a good head on his shoulders. He has to be smart and care about expanding his mind. He has to be open-minded and respectful of other people’s views and beliefs. He has to be able to laugh at himself and not take things too seriously. He has to be adventuress and up for trying new things with me!

What are your turn-ons?

-Humility, intelligence, ambition, spontaneity and height!

What are your turnoffs?

-Cigarette smokers, guys that are judgmental, pretty boys, guys with big egos and laziness.

What would you say is your best feature?

-I get the most compliments on my legs, but I personally enjoy my dimples. I usually forget I even have them until someone points them out.

What are your future plans or dreams in life?

-I would love to model for as long as possible. It has taken me so many places and has been such a great experience so far. After, I’d like to do something a lot more mellow like become a writer or therapist. I'd definitely like to do something engaging or creative my whole life.

Any special shout outs or thank you's?

-I'd like to say thank you to the whole MMA world in general! Thank you to all of my fans! Thank you for letting me be part of such a fun sport and world!

Thank you too for your time Vanessa and we hope to continue seeing you involved with MMA for a long time to come. For the latest on Vanessa please visit her Facebook and Twitter pages.

Fighter Babe Jenae Noonan Returns to the Cage October 13th

Fighter babe Jenae “Turbo” Noonan returns to the cage on October 13th in Moscow, Russia at World Sports MMA. Currently the 120 lbs national champion in Sport MMA Jenae fights out of Covina, CA and will proudly represent team USA at the world games in Moscow in October. Jenae’s current overall fighting record is 13-2, a combined record with boxing, Muay Thai and MMA fights. In addition to fighting Jenae is also model and motivational speaker. She speaks to living a positive, motivated, purpose filled, driven life! We recently caught up with Jenae for the interview below prior to her upcoming MMA tournament in Moscow.

How did you get involved in MMA and how long have you been training?

-I got involved in MMA when I moved into a house with amazing MMA fighters Javi Vasquez and Gabe Rudiger. They both took me to their gyms and started working with me. I got the bug for the sport, got hooked and eight years latter still competing.

Where are you currently training, and what's a typical training week like for you?

-I am currently training at King of Kings boxing gym in Covina, Ca, UFC gym in Rosemead and the University of La Verne for my strength and conditioning. A typical week looks a bit like this. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights I am at the UFC gym with Coach Brandon Bender working on my Jiu-Jitsu. Tuesday-Friday mornings I am with Coach Joseph at King of Kings working on my boxing. After that on Tuesday and Thursday I head to ULV to work with Coach Matt Durant on my strength and conditioning. I also work with Coach Liron Wilson on my overall game.

Tell us about your upcoming fight, who you're fighting and where?

-My next fight is going to be for the world title in MMA!! I am fighting many different girls in a tournament style competition October 13th in Moscow, Russia at World Sports MMA. I will be representing team USA and fighting against other girls from their countries!!!!

What is your best experience as a fighter? What is your worst?

-My best experience as fighter is meeting my fans and having a little girl tell me she looks up to me. That is why I do what I do, I love to inspire!!! I really don't have a worst experience, I view it as everything happens for a reason and I learn from each situation.

What advice would you give to other women who are reading this interview and want to get started in MMA?

-Stick to it!!! Find a good gym, get focused, find a great WHY for why you are doing it and do your best 100% of the time. NEVER GIVE UP!!!

What are some of the hurdles that you think Women in MMA need to overcome before Women's MMA will be considered a top level sport like Men's MMA is today?

-I personally don't think women have a hurdle to overcome. I think it’s the perspective of the main people in the bigger venues that need to overcome their hang ups. Personally if we women keep doing what we are doing and keep working hard and fighting our hardest it will only be a matter of time!

When do you think we will see women divisions in the UFC?

-I think women fighting in Strikeforce are Zuffa's justification that women do have a venue to fight in. In the UFC it might be awhile.

What or who are your inspirations in MMA and life?

-My inspirations are the young girls that I teach and my fans that keep me going. I want to be an inspiration to others so when I meet them it inspires me. When I hear that someone looks up to me it inspires me to be the best I can be.

Who are your favorite MMA fighters?

-My favorite MMA fighter is definitely George St Pierre. I had the honor of being in the same magazine as him and I felt that was the biggest honor ever to share a page with him.

How do you enjoy your free time when not training or fighting?

-I love riding bikes and hiking. I am an outdoors kind of girl!! I love being on the water as well. Going 65 across the water on a sea-doo is an amazing feeling. Or riding downhill on a bike or hiking to a new water fall and jumping in once I get there!!! I also love to help people so I spend a lot of time working with the needy and helping out where I can.

Of course we have a few questions for the male readership as well.

Are you single?

-I am not single. I am very lucky to have a very supportive and amazing relationship!!

What do you look for in a guy?

-I look for honesty, a guy that means what he says and says what he means. Adventurous, someone that will ride bikes, explore and live life with me!!

What would you say is your best feature?

-I hear all the time that my best feature is my eyes! They are super green and stand out! From time to time I hear my butt is very nice as well...

Any future plans or dreams?

-I would love to one day get married and have a family. As far as the sport is concerned I want a championship belt, a world title. I want to be the best!!

Any shout outs you would like to make?

-I would like to make a shout out to my family, they are so supportive and they mean so much to me. Also to TOPKING clothing, Agape clothing, King of Kings Boxing gym, UFC gym, Alivas Cabinets and Millwork, and Covina Valley Cyclery. My team mates and coaches!!! Thanks to Faline for all the amazing pictures. And to anyone that I have ever called a friend or fan, your support means the world to me!!!!!!

Thank you for your time Jenae and best of luck in Moscow! Friends and fans can help Jenae with expenses for this incredible journey by donating here. Don’t forget to wish Jenae good luck on Facebook, her fan page and on Twitter.
