Raised in Washington, D.C., Kyra started training in martial arts in 2008 doing boxing, jiu-jitsu, wrestling and MMA. She wrestled all through high school, becoming the Team Captain and first ever to make it to the State finals. After graduating she immediately started a career in MMA when she turned 18, then turned pro at 19. Kyra has over 300 matches under her belt for jiu-jitsu and wrestling. She’s known for her aggressive strikes on the ground and big takedowns on the feet. With her nickname, Mogwai, she looks cute and little, but turns into a gremlin once she gets in the ring!
