Raya was born in Pittsburgh, but currently resides in Los Angeles. Her mother enrolled her in karate lessons when she was just 4 years old and earned a black belt by the time she was 10. A genuine karate girl! She switched to kick-boxing at age 12 and continues to train to this day. Raya believes her martial arts background will enable her to dominate the women of the LFC. A victim of an opponent switch at LFC 23, Raya handled it professionally. She showed that she was a good sport while fighting a larger fighter and nearly pulled out a win. No complaints from 'Sugar Ray'. Many considered her first LFC match at LFC 22 as one of the best fights to date; as she refused to quit. Even in losing, Raya won many fans over with her give-and-take performance that showed great balance in her stand-up game and ability to work a crowd. Fans can expect that balance to lead her to legitimacy in the LFC.
