Hannah Kampf (2-0-0) defeated Pooja Tomar (1-1-0) by Submission (Armbar) at 2:01 of the 3rd round in their 125-Pound Professional MMA match.
Hannah is a 5'4 twenty-six year old fighter born in Philipsburg, Montana. She is currently living in India.
This is her second victory in the span of eleven days.
She had an impressive (4-2-0) record as an amateur.
In an interview with BKO Martial Arts, she talks about her start in MMA.
" I started working as a receptionist in a boxing/Muay Thai gym in 2011, and fell in love with training. I had a Muay Thai fight in 2012 and was hooked. I started training Jiu Jitsu after that, and once I got past the learning curve being on the ground felt very natural for me. I consider myself pretty well-rounded now. Everyone has to fight something. I know people have said this better than me. But that’s something very beautiful to me about Martial Arts, it takes this sort of figurative idea and transposes it literally. Every part of training camp is its own little fight. Fighting temptation when you have to lose the weight, have to dehydrate yourself, fighting the exhaustion, the stress, the negative ideas from other people, and worse the ones in your own head… and finally the fight at the end. Will you give up if you’re behind? Will you let yourself be broken, or will you keep moving forward? This is a sport, but it is also life broken down into a very pure form. I’m beyond grateful for the lessons I’m taught in this sport. If I can make a living off it one day, why wouldn’t I?
