Of all the former beauty pageant contestants out there, how many are aspiring MMA fighters? You would think zero right? Wrong, meet Whitney Miller. Back in 2012 Whitney was crowned Miss USA and dazzled with her Texas charm and natural beauty. After competing and winning several shows she wanted something with a little more danger and spice in her life. She decided to try Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. While most other girls would quit after their first sparring session, Whitney fell in love with BJJ. She went all in and is now an aspiring BJJ black belt and MMA fighter.
Don’t let her pretty face and gorgeous body fool you. She has some serious skills and has trained with elite fighters, including top ranked UFC star Cub Swanson. She also has top level boxing skills and has already won several bouts.
For now Whitney is sticking with boxing but may compete in MMA at a future date. That would be awesome to see her take on another hot MMA athlete like Ronda Rousey. Whitney would be the prefect comeback fighter for Ronda. It would garner a lot of press from around the world. It would also be an exciting match to watch, with Whitney’s top level boxing and solid grappling against the legendary submission skills of Ronda Rousey.
Who knows if we will ever see Whitney in a UFC cage, but we sure hope so.
