I asked Jessica what got her into MMA and she responded, "I got into boxing at a young age watching fights with my Dad. I started doing some kick boxing when I joined the Air Force to help me get in shape I fell in love with the sport! I moved to Minot, ND in October 2005 and started training. I started boxing first and then MMA started getting big and I got an opportunity to fight professionally so I started training for my first MMA fight at the beginning of 2011."
