Kahili found her way into ring carding when her work as a full-time model collided with her love of kickboxing and training. She is a personal trainer and kickboxer who has trained in local fight gyms as well as Muay Thai camps in Thailand. Kahili started out ring carding local MMA and boxing events around Sydney but now is an official ring girl for the UFC representing Australia. Her debut for the UFC was in 2012 for The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes, a reality show which featured fighters from Australia and the UK. Soon she will be heading to Montreal to represent the Australian side in the new series, The Ultimate Fighter Nations: Australia vs. Canada. Her favorite MMA fighter is James Te Huna.
Outside the world of MMA Kahili is a full-time model, personal trainer and studying for her Bachelor of Nutritional Medicine degree. Modeling for the past five years she has worked with names like Zoo Magazine, Rockstar Energy Drink and ICE Swimwear but calls winning the 2011 Australian Swimwear Model of the Year her biggest stepping stone into the modeling industry. With big plans for her future, Kahili plans to combine her background in personal training and nutritional medicine into a successful business of her own.
