“The Marine delegations were a powerful experience for me since my dad is a Navy Veteran, and one of the delegations we did was to a Navy Recruiting center next door to a Marine Recruiting center. When learning about the UFC’s president’s and top fighters behavior and the things they have said, I realized why my dad had always said he wanted sons and what he fought to protect me, his baby girl, from. And I wanted to protect his honor from the UFC’s use of the armed forces for their reputation, despite my own feelings towards the military.”
