Previously,  UFC teased Rae's appearance in a video that also featured retired mixed martial artist and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Forrest Griffin in an Instagram video that was captioned as “New prospect on the roster.” “I got to work with Addison a little bit today. She is probably the best talent I have seen. I hear she has already got a good career going, but if she didn’t, she is now a fighting expert, and I do want to take all the credit for that," Griffin said.
