MMA Fighter Rachel Wray
It’s surprising to think that Rachel Wray, the woman who gets paid to beat people up in the octagon, used to be a cheerleader. She began cheerleading in high school and continued doing it in college. Upon graduating, she was immediately picked up by the Kansas City Chiefs.
After a few years of cheerleading for the Chiefs, she started her MMA career. So far, she fought in four battles, losing and winning two times. The bantamweight fighter has yet to make a name for herself and sign a deal with the UFC. Her mother hated her decision to switch careers, but her dad was completely on board.
