A blonde bombshell on the outside, a unstoppable force in the octagon. Sophie was born and raised in Birmingham, Sophie was inspired by the power rangers (specifically Jason), she started training in contact sport. Her lifelong coach was a key player in bringing mixed martial arts (MMA) to the UK and this has driven Sophie’s passion to become a successful MMA fighter.

Sophie has won medals in both Judo and Jujitsu, winning the World Martial Arts Championships in 2010. Her career took a step backwards when she had to undergo surgery to both knees, but she is now back on the road to glory, training and fighting harder than ever.

Under estimate Sophie at your own peril! We are so pleased and proud to have Sophie with the MAM family, showing the world just how incredible female athletes can be!
