Liz "Girl-Rilla" Carmouche is a professional mixed martial artist who has appeared in organizations such as Strikeforce, Ultimate Warrior Challenge, C3 Fights, and Native Fighting Championship. At the time of this interview, her next scheduled match is against Jan Finney in Strikeforce at ShoMMA 12: Wilcox vs. Ribeiro on November 19th, 2010.
Darrick: How did you end up competing professionally in mixed martial arts?
Liz: I was a very active child growing up. My father got me into martial arts as a child and my mom supported the decision, but where I grew up it got too pricey to continue. I didn't pick back up with a martial art again until my last year in the Marine Corps. I was just looking for something that would challenge me. It had always seemed to be on the back burner, but at the core of who I was.
