Profile: Sophie Newnes
Born and raised in Birmingham, Sophie was inspired by Power Rangers (specifically Jason), she started training in contact sport. Her life long coach was a key player in bringing mixed martial arts (MMA) into the UK and this has driven Sophie’s passion to become a successful MMA fighter.
Sophie has won medals in both Judo and Jujitsu, winning the World Martial Arts Championship in 2010. Her career took a step backwards when she had to undergo surgery to both knees, but she is now back on the road to glory, training hard and fighting harder.
