I asked Shannon how she got started in MMA and this was her answer, "I have been training for 4 1/2 yrs. I had no prior experience in combat sports. I competed in track & field through high school and college. I ended up going to a MMA school just looking for a good cardio workout. Initially I had no intentions of fighting but the competitive part of me took over"
