Former NFL cheerleader loses first MMA bout in bloody fight

Rachel Wray — the former NFL cheerleader who is making a transition to MMA — lost her first fight against fellow amateur fighter Nadia Nixon in a wild, bloody fight Friday night in Kansas City.

The beautiful blond — who traded her pompoms for MMA gloves  — lost a close split decision  at the Ultimate Blue Corner Battles for her first loss in three fights.

Nixon actually ended up looking worse, with blood covering almost her entire face by the end of the fight. Wray, who was a cheerleader for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012, seemed to hurt Nixon late in the second round with heavy punches, but was unable to finish her off.

Nixon is just 1-5 as an amateur, according to Sherdog’s Fight Finder, so it’ll be back to the heavy bag for Wray. It doesn’t seem like she minds. On her Twitter account, she tweeted a photo of her and Nixon punching each other with the caption “Yes that is blood...Greatest night of my life.”

  1. I think that you can expect to have the names involved and date of that fight card burned into your brain over the next short while as the UFC looks to generate interest in UFC 159
