Susan became interested in reporting on Mixed Martial Arts quite by accident. She was supposed to do a story on a female wrestler who was preparing for the Olympics, but at the last minute the shoot was cancelled. The wrestler’s strength and conditioning coach JC Santana of The Institute of Human Performance in Boca Raton, Florida had worked with dozens and dozens of Mixed Martial Artists preparing them for their fights. So he suggested she do a story on an up and coming Mixed Martial Artist by the name of Micah Miller, brother of UFC fighter, Cole Miller.
One stop inside the American Top Team training facility in Coconut Creek, Florida was all it took and she was hooked. Susan was particularly impressed with the determination and discipline the fighters had as well as their team spirit.
Since then, Susan has decided that she wants to focus as much time as possible on covering Mixed Martial Arts. She has reported for fiveouncesofpain.com, prommanow.com, Scrapp magazine.and El Octagano.
Some of her MMA interviews include: Dana White, Frank Mir, Chuck Liddell, Bjorn Rebney, Carlos Condit, Leonard Garcia, Eddie Wineland, Mike Pyle, Ian McCall, Demetrious Johnson, Charles Brenneman, Matt Hughes, Marloes Coenan, Herschel Walker, Bobby Lashley, Keith Jardine, Nate Marquedt, Scott Coker, Harold Davis, Jessica Agullar, Alex Caceres, Angelo Dundee, Wes Sims, Cole Miller, Efrain Escudero, Seth Petrozulli, Greg Nagy, and Nick Delpopolo.
When she is not working, she enjoys yoga, pilates, belly dancing and hiking. While she is not a mixed martial artist now she is so passionate and enthusiastic about the sport, she is sure she will come back in her next life as a champion. In the meantime she continues her quest to dominate in the octagon of reporting.
