Liz Carmouche (also known as Girl-Rilla) is not only a women’s UFC fighter, but also served as a Marine aviation electrician with three tours of duty to the Middle East.  You’ll hear Liz get into her background, her early experiences as a young athlete, and how growing up in Japan led to her motivation to serve in the Corps. We also discuss her ventures with 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu in California.  Liz tells us about her drive to succeed, why she chooses not to be a trash-talker, and why she wasn’t surprised with Ronda Rousey stepping away from the sport.  For those who don’t know, Carmouche fought Rousey nearly five years ago at UFC 157 in Anaheim, California for the first ever women’s UFC fight.

Jim West who hosts this episode with me also recaps his first ever street fighting class and seminar that was exclusively for Crate Club members, and also gets into his son having now left home for the U.S. Air Force.  We also discuss the benefits of fitness in general, both of us being guys who work out frequently.  Any questions?  Send them over to [email protected]

You can follow Liz Carmouche on Twitter and Instagram @IAmGirlrilla.  We hope to have her back on soon!
