Rachel Wray, a former cheerleader for the Kansas City Chiefs, is pursuing a career in MMA and she appears to be faring well, winning her first two fights.
Are you like me? Are you one of those frustrated BJ Penn fans who just doesn't understand why he chooses to continue to compete at 170 pounds? Do you find it strange that the smallest welterweight in the division would come out of retirement to take on the largest welterweight in the division? Well, after watching Lions football every Sunday for the last 20 some years of my life...
