5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT ALESHA ZAPPITELLA
WHEN AND WHY DID YOU START IN MMA?
I started wrestling when I was 5 years old and I fell in love with MMA at 19 years old.
DO YOU HAVE ANY HEROES AND WHY?
My heroes are my parents, Scott and Zori Zappitella, because I didn’t grow up the most privileged but I saw how hard they worked to give my brother and me everything they possibly could to give us a better life and give us opportunities they never had. They showed us how to be hard workers and never give up.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES AND INTERESTS OUTSIDE OF FIGHTING?
Other than taking my youth team to tournaments and competing in BJJ tournaments, I also enjoy reading mindset books, learning about astrology, playing with my puppy Cruz the Miniature Pinscher, and doing anything outdoors such as shooting and fishing.
