I asked Roberta how long she has trained in BJJ and MMA and this was her answer, "I have been training Martial Arts for 10 years and I have been focusing on MMA for the last two years. My goal is to get in the UFC and fight in the 135-pound weight class, the weight class of defending champion Ronda Rousey. I know I'll soon be on top its just a matter of time. I want to thank all the fans, you'll be hearing a lot from me!"
