Rachel Wray (not to be confused with Rachel Ray, the cook) ditched her skirt for a gi and a pair of shorts.

Wray, a former cheerleader for the Kansas City Chiefs, is a blue belt in BJJ and also competes in MMA.

Rachel trains with one of the top female BJJ black belts in the world, Mackenzie Dern. In a 2015 interview with Fox Sports, Wray said that she had taken home 10 gold medals in various BJJ tournaments.

Her MMA is not off to a bad start, either. So far she has only fought in four amateur bouts, and she has lost the last two, but her first two victories came by way of TKO.

She has not set foot in the cage since 2014, and may be taking a break from the sport.
