"My goals are the same as most in this sport which is to become a well-recognized champion for mainstream promotions. I want to win them all!!!! But eventually I will have to give this up at some point so I’m looking to start my own female combat sports apparel," Catron said.
"Killswitch" also hopes to return to the Invicta FC cage sometime next year.
"To return to Invicta and showcase my hard work," Catron told MMA Explosion's Tim Miller, when asked what her goals are for the year ahead. "I’ve been there twice and feel that I haven’t shown my true potential. So just to get back in there and put on a great show is my main goal."
Catron, 27, is smart for having both goals set for herself. There aren't many serious players in the female combat sports apparel game, with just a handful of companies targeting their products for female athletes.
Tussle Fight Gear is one of the few companies that markets apparel specifically for female combat sports athletes, and not many others stand out. Since Catron is a fighter herself, she'll have the advantage when it comes to knowing what should go into products designed for female brawlers.
As for getting back into the Invicta FC cage, that's a goal that isn't out of reach. While she has gone 0-2 in Invicta, her recent loss to Livia Von Plettenberg shouldn't be held against her, as she took the fight on short notice.
In her previous Invicta FC fight, she got caught in an armbar by Rose Namajunas, so she didn't get to show off her skillset.
"I got caught with a great move by an exceptional athlete as many people in this sport do," Catron said. "It was just a great move that caught me completely off guard and as always it was a learning experience."
