5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT LISA SPANGLER
WHEN AND WHY DID YOU START IN MMA?
I joined Gladiator MMA in the Vancouver mall when I was 14 because I got bored of the cookie cutter karate school I attended in middle school. At first, I was just training for fun.
WHT WAS YOUR CAREER BEFORE FIGHTING? DO YOU STILL MAINTAIN THAT JOB?
I started fighting the summer I graduated in 2014. I got a job at PetSmart in 2015 which I still have.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES AND INTERESTS OUTSIDE OF FIGHTING?
I like playing Dungeons and Dragons and watching anime. Sometimes I make memes. I watch gaming or makeup videos. I crochet/knit or draw when I’m bored. I love music and attending concerts. If I had time/money/skill I would cosplay.
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON FIGHTING FOR INVICTA FC?
I’m still in shock that it’s even happening. It used to be a vague goal but now that I’m here I’m beyond excited and nervous. A lot of big names have come from this promotion so it’s definitely an honor.
WHEN FIGHT FANS HEAR YOUR NAME, WHAT DO YOU WANT THEM TO THINK AND REMEMBER?
I’m not really big on talking trash or putting people down. But when I get into the cage, win/lose or draw, I want it to be an exciting fight.
