The featured Co-Main Event was for the vacant Women’s 105 lb. The two women that fought that night was Elane “The Puerto Rican Princess” Santiago from Brighton, Michigan and Andy “CrAsian” Nguyen from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Santiago and Nguyen have model appearances and one punch knock out power, making them rising stars in the MMA world.
That night these fighters gave it all for the fans, and in return #AndNew King of the Cage 105 pound champ Andy Nguyen defeated Elane via TKO at 3:58 in Round 3.
Andy is now 2-2 with her two victories being by TKO and two loses going to decision. Her title-winning bout garnered her fight of the night. Impressive on its own however add in she beat the men on the card and it’s even more glorious.
Born in Hollywood California her family moved to South Carolina when she was 13. Andy started MMA around 27 and now is training out of Karate Mafia in Bossier City Louisiana. When she’s not in the gym she spends time at her church, she loves to cook and going to comedy shows and photo shoots (Which many readers will be happy to support considering she can knock you out in the cage, and with her looks). Andy loves spending time with her son Sabastian Miller & her niece Mila.
So what kind of man does she prefer? Well it’s not fighters..
“I love dorks, so much easier to get along with when I’m cutting weight.”
When asked to elaborate the self-proclaimed goofy and crazy girl simply said “hot dorks.”
