Serina 'Honey Punch' Kyle [2-1] was kind enough to take some time off her busy schedule to answer some questions for the fans. Make sure to check out her new movie Gone by Dawn 2: Dead by Dusk, set to be released in 2018. Enjoy the article.
Tell us about yourself?
I am a professional horseback rider, both English, western and trail. I grew up on a farm and dedicated all my spare time to it. I’m obsessed with snowboarding. I longboard and mountain bike in the summer so I don’t crave it when the snow is gone. Nothing makes me feel as at peace than when I’m on a horse or a board. I’m a member of peta; I have a corn snake, a gecko, a horse and a cat!
What interests you about the LFC?
The LFC is interesting, because not only does it look amazing, but do you know how hard it is to fight in next to nothing? Also, the places we get to fight in is an experience in itself. It’s intense when there’s no weight class and you may be up against someone twice your size.
If you could pick any place in the world to have the next LFC event, where would it be and why?
If I was picking the next place to fight it would be Macau, because their underground fight scene is intense. It also has a truly world famous international leisure tourism hub. Think Vegas, but on steroids.
How do you feel about the contrast between doing something so feminine (modelling in lingerie) while simultaneously doing something so masculine (bashing each other’s faces in)?
I feel as though the contrast between doing something feminine (wearing lingerie) and masculine (bashing someone’s face in) is a perfect personification of the true nature of being a women. I feel like Wonder Woman: ferocious and savage while at the same time looking as elegant and majestic as a tigress. I work hard for my body and am proud to show off what my dedication has earned. Nudity empowers some, modesty others. I just happen to be the former. You may want to fuck us but don’t fuck with us.
Who were your favorite fighters/wrestlers growing up?
My favorite fighter/wrestlers growing up were Trish Stratus, Lita, Dwayne Johnson, Andre the Giant, AJ Lee, Chris Jericho, and Stone Cold Steve Austin; all memorable for the electric energy and charisma that made professional wrestling so fun to watch. I got addicted to watching wrestling with my dad and his buddies from about 10 years old and up. It’s the most entertaining sport out there in my opinion.
As soon as the UFC fad became popular in my age group, I spent every card night wrapped up in getting drunk and watching crazy people beat the living piss out of each other. Now that’s good TV. My all time epic UFC fighters are Anderson Silva, Georges St-Pierre, Randy Couture, Ronda Rousey, Conor McGregor and Amanda Nunes.
What are your favorite matches?
My favorite matches of all time are:
- WrestleMania 21 (Money in the Bank)
- The Rock vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin
- Trish Stratus vs. Victoria
- Divas Battle Royal 2013
- Silva vs. Sonnen
What is your favorite match that you’ve been in?
My favorite match that I’ve been in was my rematch in Kansas City against Maxine 'The Boss' Frost [1-2]. I am the better fighter and the only reason she won the first fight was because she got lucky when I landed wrong and tore my MCL. I wish I could fight her again and prove that I’m undoubtedly the more talented.
Who had the greatest influence/impact in your life?
The people who’s had the greatest influence in my life are my parents. They had me too young and raised us with no money and worked double jobs at times to make sure we always had what we needed and more. They instilled the dedication and honor I strive to live by. I’ll count myself lucky if people consider me half the woman they raised me to be.
What type of TV shows, books and movies interest you the most? Why?
My favorite books are of the adventure / fantasy genre. I love Terry Brooks and R.A. Salvatore. Adventure and fantasy mixes the sensation of taking me away and what kind of magic I wish was in the world. I’m also a super geek; although it’s hard to pick, my favorite comic books stars are Wolverine, Batman, X-Men and Spider-Man. Yes, I know they’re all main stream but sometimes they’re popular, because they’re the best. My favorite movies are Indiana Jones, Star Wars, anything Quentin Tarantino, anything with ninjas, and of course Gone by Dawn.
What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
I don’t think I could pin it down to “the craziest” thing I’ve ever done (umm hello? Wrestling half naked?) because I’ve done some pretty weird shit. But if I had to pick, I would have to say it was when my friends and I tried to fit as many people as we could into my car then drove around. We fit 10, proceeded to get pulled over but the cop got called away in the middle of reaming us out so we got away with it.
Which part of your body do you consider most sexy?
I think my most sexy attribute would be my cheekbones mixed with my collarbone. I’m blessed with fairly angular features which, paired with my baby face, gives me a fairly angelic look if I can be a little vain.
Has anyone ever broken your heart? How?
I’ve only had my heart broken once, but it still stings. I had a boyfriend of 3 years. We were planning to go on a trip together, but I noticed whenever I brought it up he didn’t seem very enthusiastic. I asked him about it and he confessed that he didn’t want to go, because it would feel “as if we were married.” I told him we were too young to feel that way and I had never brought it up before so I was clueless to why he would take it that way. But honestly, if he didn’t want to vacation with me why was I wasting my time? We broke up mutually but it was the most painful thing I’ve ever done.
Anything else you want to tell your fans?
I would love it if my fans could watch my movie! It’s my first time acting and I’m very proud. It was even more nerve wracking than my first fight but I’m incredibly proud of it. My second movie is coming out soon in Gone By Dawn 2. Also, if you wanted to follow me on Instagram that would be cool too! I always update on my latest events there.
