South Carolina MMA babe Andy Nguyen said on Feb. 24 in an exclusive interview with Long Island MMA Examiner Eric Holden that she plans to return to the cage this April.

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.
