Claire’s was recently interviewed for Australia’s largest MMA organisation and this is what she had to say:
How did you get into the sport?
I wanted to be David Sloan (Kickboxer 2) all through High School, so when I had finished school I opened the phone book and there was Pollet’s phone number, so I called them and I have been there since 1999.
What’s your favourite strike/submission to use in any fight?
A flow of combinations
Who is your biggest inspiration?
The people that I cross paths with everyday that are fighting a larger battle than I am. They remind me that I am so very fortunate to be able to chase my dreams and remind to keep chasing, take nothing for granted.
Which team are you training with in preparation for your next bout? Pollet’s all the way!!
Do you like to stand with your opponents or take them to the ground?
Whatever opportunity comes.
What does it mean (for you) to be a fighter?
It’s not about the fight, its about the journey.
What separates you from every other fighter in your division?
I just keep on keeping on.
If you could have one dream fight with anyone, who would it be?
Claire brings a unique wealth of knowledge, experience, passion and dedication to our team. She constantly trains 4 hours per day, 6 days per week to continually expand her skill set and follow her dreams to one day make it into the UFC.
