What a hot princess! Who could imagine that this girl was once overweight? She was even bullied in childhood until she made up her mind to stop it.

Be fearless. @yokkao

At first sport was just a hobby which helped her fix eating disorder. Gradually Mia got absorbed in it and decided to make a career in MMA. She said, “I’ve fallen in love with martial arts.”

In spring 2017 Kang debuted professionally in Muai Thai fight and got a victory, scoring a third-round TKO. She claims this is only the first chapter in her sports career, “I’m not saying that Thai boxing is more brutal but I’m not easily scared.”
