Esparaza is a total cutie and she has the adorable nickname "Cookie Monster". But don't let that fool you because she's been training as a fighter since her junior year in high school and has made quite a name for herself.

Ostovich now has full custody of their daughter and Berdon was sentenced to four years on probation in 2019.

Paige VanZant

What most people don't know about VanZant is that she faced a lot of bullying in high school and was reportedly even gang-raped once but she's channeled all of that struggle into becoming a truly formidable presence in the octagon.
