Brittany Anne Robertson: Knees to the liver + family

“I just kept punching her in the face and eventually we clinched up and moved towards the middle of the ring and I started with knees, and I kneed her in the liver. . . . She went down immediately. . . .  The video that I have of that fight is the video my brother recorded, who came there with my mom. And that was important because my parents do not approve of the fighting and had never attended anything until then, but my mom came to my first MMA fight with my brother and my brother turns the camera to my mom, and she’s like . . . literally cry-laughing. I love that. It’s so lovely.”
