No Holds Barred: Andy Nguyen on Her Dec. 31 Rizin Fight 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with King of the Cage atomweight champion Andy "The CrAsian" Nguyen.

Her next fight will take place Saturday, December 31, at the Rizin Fighting Federation event at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Her opponent will be three-time world women's wrestling champion Miyuu Yamamoto.

We spoke with Andy Nguyen by phone Sunday.

Discussing how her varied background, she said, "My first amateur fight was MMA. And then my second amateur fight was a boxing match."

Her style, she said, is that of a "boxer merged into muay Thai merged into jiu-jitsu."

We discussed the growth of women's MMA and how "we fight harder"; how she once won a ring girl competition; how she got involved with Rizin; her plans for fighting Miyuu Yamamoto; how she got involved with MMA when she saw a live fight shortly after it had been legalized in South Carolina, where she lives; balancing her roles as a mother and a fighter; her background as a Vietnamese-American and how she got her nickname "The CrAsian"; her future plans to be a promoter, commentator, trainer, and even a ring girl again; and much more.
