Lauren Murphy Defying the Odds

Lauren Murphy on MMA fighting, family and upcoming UFC debut
By: Amber Boone, WSN247.com
"There are a few questions that have been debated through the ages, but we still have no concrete answer. Among them, if a tree falls and there is no one around to hear it, does it make a sound? If a man is speaking and there is no one around to hear him, is he still wrong? And my personal favorite: why are yawns contagious?

"At UFC Fight Night 47 this Saturday Aug. 16 on Fox Sports 1, we will have the privilege of watching one of these questions put to a practical test. That question is: What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?

"In this case, Sara McMann is our immovable object. An Olympic wrestler with amazing take-downs and take-down defense; she’s got power and explosive strength. It’s been hard for all of her opponents (except Ronda Rousey) to determine when the fight goes to the ground or if it stays standing. In fact, McMann’s only loss is her recent defeat to the pound for pound and UFC champ, Ronda Rousey. McMann has dominated everyone else she’s ever fought including respected vets Tonya Evinger and Shayna Baszler.

"Invicta FC Bantamweight champion Lauren Murphy has proven to be an unstoppable force. Most fighters begin their careers with three to five amateur fights. Murphy made her MMA debut in a professional fight in Alaska and has defied the odds and beaten every opponent since. Climbing through the ranks of the bantamweight division, Murphy has been the perpetual underdog. And even though she is the Invicta FC champ, she is yet again considered the underdog in her next fight against McMann."
