Indiana native Ashley Yoder made Southern California her adopted home after enduring a painful tragedy. She has since developed a passion for martial arts and found success early in her pro Mixed Martial Arts career. Last month she won her fourth professional fight, third by submission, at BAMMA Bad Beat 17.

She took time out of her schedule to talk with us about what keeps her fighting, submitting an icon, being a One Man Wolf Pack, her Alma Mater, her parents thoughts on her MMA career, and who her favorite Star Wars character is (it might be who you think it is.)
