Where does Amanda Ribas’ amazing energy come from? She explains

Amanda Ribas is making her name as one of the fastest-rising fighters in the UFC strawweight division. Ribas (10-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) has won all four of her UFC bouts heading into her UFC 257 showdown with Marina Rodriguez on Jan. 23.

But the American Top Team competitor is also becoming known as a free spirit who loves to laugh as much as she loves to fight.

Ribas giggled her way through a recent interview with MMA Junkie’s Mike Bohn, so we had to ask, where does her personality come from? Is she even capable of getting angry?

Ribas gave it her best shot, and ended up with something profound during this holiday season.

“We need to know who you are, you’re not (better than) anybody. So you need to be humble.”

But we’re not really doing this justice. You have to watch the video, which is linked above, to truly understand the positive vibes of one of the sport’s rising stars.
