“My mother said I always liked fighting, hitting other people,” said Morandin to MMA Junkie. “I think this comes from when she was pregnant with me. She used to stay up at the crack of dawn watching Mike Tyson fights.”

Morandin also credits her brother and father for helping her make it in the MMA world.

With her promotional debut a short time away, the undefeated fighter says that fighting for Invicta FC is a dream come true.

“This is much more than a fight to me,” she said. “It’s a dream come true. I’ve been following Invicta since their first event. Fighting in Invicta has been my dream. After I signed the contract, especially to face one of the best in the weight class, I had a great sense of accomplishment. Whether I win or lose, it’s already a great accomplishment for me. But of course, she’s one of the best in our weight class and an excellent striker. I’m debuting without pressure. I know I’m facing one of the best. But I’m here to prove that I’m one of the best too. I think we’ll strike until one of us drops. I’m giving my blood. No matter what happens, I’m making this dream come true.”

Invicta Fighting Championships 22 takes place on Saturday, March 25 from the Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Missouri with Tonya Evinger and Yana Kunitskaya headlining. Fightful will be providing live coverage of the event.
