Nguyen, who is coming off a first-round victory over Melissa Timmers, is already training for her upcoming bout, but she kindly took out a few minutes from her busy schedule to discuss her MMA career.
Here's what she had to say:
Q. What's been happening with you lately? How was your last MMA fight?
Nguyen: I went back down to fight at 115 pounds and won. It was a first round submission, guillotine at the 1:20 mark.
Q. When is your next fight?
Nguyen: April 12th in Greenville, South Carolina, at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena.
Q. Do you have any hidden talents?
Nguyen: Hidden talents? I can hula hoop around my waist, my neck and my ankle while skipping around the swimming pool. I can draw graffiti. I'm from LA. So duh.
Q. A lot of female fighters say they can only date guys who fight. What about you?
Nguyen: I will not date another MMA fighter. I've dated nerds and geeks and they're easier to get along with. We can be 'hot dorks' together!
Q. There was a rumor out there that the XFC was taking a good look at you. Is that the promotion you'd like to end up in?
Nguyen: I would love to fight for John Prisco! Pearl Gonzalez told me she love them! I might fight for Warfare owned by Andy Hall for my pro debut but eventually end up with XFC. Nothing is set in stone.
Q. What is your biggest fantasy?
Nguyen: My biggest fantasy is to dance like a stripper in the bedroom for him, in lingerie or thongs. I hate thongs. I wear boy shorts. Hah!
Q. How does it feel to be considered one of the sexiest women in MMA?
Nguyen: Looks are based on opinions but it's their judgements so, it's actually facts to them. It's flattering but I'm very humble.
Q. Do you have any dream opponents?
Nguyen: I never dream of fighting my idols so it's contrary.
