Current UFC Star Starts Pro-Wrestling Training UFC

Current UFC star Miranda Maverick has confirmed that she has started wrestling training while continuing with MMA.

Flyweight fighter Maverick made an appearance at The Big Event expo in New York on Saturday (November 12).

During her time at the expo, Maverick took a photo with WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle, which she shared on Twitter.

In her tweet, Maverick revealed that she will begin her in-ring training this week, following a tryout with Rocky Mountain Pro.

Maverick noted:

“P.S. I did the wrestling tryouts at @therockymtnpro & start training Monday 😎 And YES I’m still fighting for UFC for the foreseeable future 😉”

The MMA fighter won both of her fights this year, defeating Sabina Mazo with a rear-naked choke submission on March 12, and picking up a unanimous decision victory over Shanna Young on November 5.

Former Bellator star Valerie Loureda recently made her in-ring debut for WWE, after signing with the company in June.

Loureda competed in a Halloween-themed battle royal on the October 28 NXT house show, and teamed with Bronco Nima and Xyon Quinn to face Chase U at the November 12 event.
