Mia Kang, the sexy Sports Illustrated model wants to be a professional Muay Thai brawler and is ready to throw herself in the care.
By already establishing herself as the top swimsuit model Mia Kang, achieved which all other models dreamed off by appearing in the pages of Sports Illustrated’s annual Swimsuit Issue. Other than that her careers achievements include modelling for Vogue, and working for a modelling agency owned by US president The Donald – Trump Models.
Mia is ready for next challenge in her life, by becoming a MMA fighter. She trained for Muay Thai fighting for almost six months and recently winning by TKO by 3rd round, according her on Instagram
In an interview with The MMA Hour, she said:
“I just wanted to go to Thailand and be in the sun, Muay Thai and living in a training camp and going through all that, it taught me to respect my body. It brought me out of everything I was going through”.
Mia is now training hard in wrestling and jiu-jitsu, the brawling beauty is being represented by leading MMA agent, Malki Kawa, who is also representing some very big names in MMA by the likes of UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley and two-time UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones.
Mia, newfound love and passion for MMA isn’t going to end her modeling career, in-fact it is only making her even more confident and motivated.
In a recent interview to Vogue she told
“I’ve been told everything from you need to straighten your hair and smile with your eyes wider to seem more Caucasian, It drove me insane after so many years and I just woke up and was like ‘Why am I trying to be something that I’m not?’
“Why do you get to tell me what is and isn’t beautiful?'”
@ruvenafanador thank you for capturing me. You're an unbelievable artist and a wonderful human being. Thank you for letting me be me and for seeing beauty in that. I felt so comfortable, beautiful and free in your presence and totally trusted your vision and guidance. It was an honour to work with you and I hope it won't be the last time. @si_swimsuit #siswim ❤

This is the last day of voting, please vote for me for @si_swimsuit Rookie of the year. I want to break down the boundaries of not only what a model is and should be, but what a WOMAN is and should be. I want to change what is currently represented of women and make differences in my industry. I want the next generation of girls to not have to go through what I went through because they have an abundant supply of positive role models. Don't just base your vote on who's got the best titties (well, not entirely anyway 😜) xx http://on.si.com/2l0Unoo
