UFC Fighter Lauren Murphy (14-4)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

Lauren “Lucky” Murphy is one of the best flyweights in the world and a women’s MMA pioneer.

Murphy has been a champion just about everywhere she has competed. Some of those include Alaska Fighting Championship and Invicta FC. She is working on the UFC championship, and she is most likely one fight away, if not next.

Murphy is currently on a four-fight winning streak. Three of her four wins came in 2020, something only one other female pulled off.
“Lucky” is coming off a second-round submission win against Liliya Shakirova. Murphy was supposed to fight Cynthia Calvillo at UFC 254; however, Calvillo pulled out of the fight. Instead of being rebooked, Murphy stayed on the card like a badass and fought a debuting Shakirova. She won via rear-naked choke.

Look for Murphy to have another great year in 2021, and there is a good chance she will be fighting for a title.
