Newly Signed Invicta Fighter Amber Brown Interview
I had the chance to talk with Amber Brown who is a new Invicta fighter about her career, how she got into mma, and some of her hobbies. She is a great family orientated young lady that looks to make waves in her new company. Amber Brown currently has a professional record of 3 wins and only one defeat.
RCM: How long have you been fighting?
Amber: I had my first fight in September 2010 that was boxing. Been training mma about two years now.
RCM: What got you interested in MMA?
Amber: The limitations of boxing got me interested in mma, I needed more.
RCM: Can you give a little background on your fighting career?
Amber: I started out with boxing. Went on with four amateur bouts, and then turned pro. Only had that one fight, then decided to go mma. My first fight was November 2012. I fought twice for KOTC then went on to fight for Pancrase twice.
RCM: What are some of your hobbies outside of the cage?
Amber: My life is the gym and my family. When I’m not in the gym training I am with my husband and daughter. I train usually 6-8 hours a day. I am a full time fighter.
RCM: Do you know who your first fight will be with in Invicta, or who it will be?
Amber: I’m pretty sure it will be in March. I haven’t gotten the full details on the exact date or who it is yet.
RCM: What do you think about the evaluation of women’s mma?
Amber: I love the direction women’s mma is going. It’s taking off! Women have a lot of talent and have proven we belong right up in the mix with the men. I don’t however agree with the sex appeal part of it, I think people should be recognized by their talent, skill, motivation, and hard work, not their looks.
RCM: What advice would you give to a young person that may want to be a fighter?
Amber: I would say just do it! You can do ANYTHING you set your mind to. Just five years ago I would have never in a million years thought I would be where I’m at today!
RCM: Did or do you have any role models in the sport?
Amber: In this sport I would say Cyborg is my role model. She is an amazing athlete, and she delivers every time.
After chatting with Amber through email and on twitter I know she has a good head on her shoulders and is ready for this next challenge. It will be fun to see how a pro boxer will do inside the cage when they have real training time in. I wish Amber the best in her new beginning with her new promotion Invicta FC.
