Fighters Biography

When & why did you start martial arts training?

I began in December 2016, because when I tried it the first time I really enjoyed it.

How did you transition to MMA?

I’m a competitor and for me it was a challenge to change sport and excel.

What ranks & titles have you held?

4X African Judo Champion, European Judo Champion, 2X Judo Olympian (London 212, Rio 2016)

How did you get your fight name?

My nephew called me ‘Auntie Lion’ and in Morocco we are called the ‘The Lon of the Atlas’.

Who is your hero and why?

Cris Cyborg

What is your favourite technique?

My favourite techniques are the contact techniques since I come from Judo and I like ground and pound.

I’m happy to fight in a big organisation that is located in Africa. It is an honour to be able to represent my country and my gym in EFC.
