On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with the world's top-ranked MMA fighter in the women's 115-pound division, and the WSOF women's strawweight champion, American Top Team fighter Jessica Aguilar.
Now with a record of 18-4, her next fight will be at WSOF 15 on November 15 when she defends her title against Brazilian fighter Kalindra Faria, who has a record of 15-3-1 and is unbeaten in the last three years. WSOF 15 takes place at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Florida, and will be shown live in the U.S. for free on NBC Sports Network.
We spoke with Jessica Aguilar by phone Wednesday.
While this is easily the biggest fight of Kalindra Faria's career, Jessica Aguilar is not taking her lightly.
"She's very experienced. She has a great record. And again, this is an athlete that a lot of people don't know about. And it's always good to challenge myself with the best opponents possible. So it's going to be a great matchup," she said. "She has wins via submission and stoppage. So It's going to be another good fight."
We also discussed her community activities, including her work with GLAAD for the October 16 Spirit Day, which is an anti-bullying event that shows support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth. She also works with the Pride Center in South Florida and the Miami Children's Hospital.
We also discussed the growing acceptance of the LGBT community and athletes in MMA and the combat sports, why she believes she is now "at my peak" as a fighter and is still improving, her training with American Top Team, and much more.
