Angela Magana ready for Bellator and Megumi Fujii

Watch out Gina Carano, there is another MMA beauty making her way to the top. That beauty would be Angela Magana, a MMA rising star that will be making her way to the Bellator Season 3 women’s tournament in August.
Magana (8-4) comes out of Team Four Corners, a sister gym to Jackson’s that hails from Farmington, NM. She is currently ranked in the top ten women’s 115lb fighters in the world and is ready to duke it out with the number one ranked pound for pound female fighter Megumi Fujii. Magana’s game plan for Fujii is to stand and bang with the submission fighter. In an exclusive interview for SalMora.com she pointed out that “As soon as someone hits her (Fujii) she gets nervous and takes them to the ground.” Angela is currently training in Las Vegas with Wanderlei Silva’s Wand Fight Team to help her prepare for the tournament.
It seems that Magana is a very busy woman. She is taking part in the NBC reality show “Ultimate Women’s Challenge” which is set to debut the last week of September. She calls it “A cross between The Ultimate Fighter and The Contender.” “It’s 16 women together in one house, training and fighting each other and going through challenges and eliminations.” Fellow NM fighters Julie Kedzie and Heather Jo Clark from Jackson’s also are part of the show, which will air in 60 million households.
But that’s not all for Angela. She is also involved in a nonprofit organization called Salvaging Sisterhood, which brings girls into the gym for free to train and help them focus their anger and issues in a healthy environment. “No matter how many times I left the gym and didn’t train, I could always come back and the door would be open for me,” says Angela. “That’s what I want to give these girls.”
Magana’s role as a mother is what makes her really stand out. Her daughter Delilah is always by her side, whether it be at the gym training, or ringside cheering her mom on. Delilah loves to brag about her mom and enjoys it when she gets to do interviews and such.
Angela Magana is a one of a kind woman with the potential to go all the way. Her ability to balance all that she does really gives her an edge when it comes time to step in the cage. Her MMA career is taking off and soon enough it will be her name that the MMA world wants to hear.
