On the aura of fighting at MSG

“I’m still taking it all in. Everybody was coming up to me before the fight and saying ‘oh my God, you’re fighting at MSG,’ and I’m like ‘nope, it’s just another fight.’ It’s nothing, it’s like any other fight, and once the fight’s over I’ll take it all in. And it’s like, I still can’t believe this is happening.”

On whether this win is her big break

“I think so. I’m hoping so. I worked really hard, and this is a big moment for me, big win, like I said, her record is amazing, and going back, going into into this fight, everybody told me what a big underdog I was, so, I’m glad I could prove everybody wrong.”

On what’s next

“I’m ready for whatever. Invicta, Bellator, anybody who wants me, I got it but, Bellator I love you since I’m here right now.”
