Everyone's favorite McDougall, Erin McDougall, is making her MMA debut at Prestige FC in Alberta, Canada this Friday night. Given the extreme level of Girl Crushitude here at GG2MMA for McDoogs, we were stoked to get to sit down for a few questions with her. The fighter / promoter / artist / model / businesswoman / girl next door was kind enough to really get down and dirty on the issues with us, answering some of our toughest questions to date.
If I wore panties, Erin would most certainly drop them. But luckily for all of us, I wear a bad ass onesy of might. But not even the mightiest onesie could contain the kick ass that is Erin McDougall. So check out her interview below, and keep an eye out right here at Gal's Guide to MMA for some more McDoog love leading up to Friday's bout!
1. Erin McDougall! The Doogs. Doogiliscious. Doogeronomy. Tell us, how does it feel to be the one, the only, the Dooginator?
When you say it like that, it feels pretty damn terrific!
2. For those reading this who don’t know who you are, please, enlighten the non-believers. Tell us a little about yourself and your MMA career?
Well, this all just sort of fell in my lap. The training, the hosting, the "image"… it just happened. Some days, I don’t even know what it is I do, when people ask. I just like to be involved. I happen to be able to throw a punch, and enjoy doing so.
3. How did you get started in all this crazy fight shenanigans? Where are you training now? How’s that treating you?
Years ago, I had a boyfriend (ex now, I might add) who got into it. I followed for the "staying in shape" aspect of it. But I fell in love with everything about the sport, and stuck with it. Right now, I train mainly out of Canadian Martial Arts Centre, in Lethbridge AB. However, I spend a lot of time out in the Vancouver area, and when I’m there I train at Tactix Gym. I’m back and forth. And am incredibly lucky to be able to do so.
