5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT KATHARINA LEHNER
WHEN AND WHY DID YOU START MMA?
When I occupationally had to move to Cologne fiver years ago, I eventually found out about mixed martial arts and started training at Combat Club Cologne who had a strong team with eventual UFC and Bellator veterans Nick Hein and Jonas Billstein at the time.
WHAT WAS YOUR CAREER BEFORE FIGHTING?
I was working as a workplace health manager for awhile but eventually quit in order to pursue a career in MMA. I bounce and wait tables in order to finance my training.
DO YOU HAVE ANY HEROES AND WHY?
There are a lot of great fighters, I really like Cris Cyborg though. The way she goes after her opponents and crushes them is very impressive. She is also a very humble and kind person outside the cage which is something you really wouldn’t expect her to be when you see her in action!
