09:53 PM ET 12.12 | Mixed martial arts is one of the fastest growing sports in the world and it has generated interest from men and women of all ages. In a historic move for the sport, UFC president Dana White announced last month that women would be allowed in the UFC. That has generated even more buzz for MMA among the female population. As more and more women enter the world of MMA, we will have intriguing background stories. It isn't out of the ordinary to have someone come from the NFL to join mixed martial arts. Multiple male fighters have made the jump, but now there is a woman making the jump from the NFL to MMA - a former Kansas City Chiefs cheerleader. Former Chiefs cheerleader Rachel Wray has decided to give up cheering for professional sports in hopes of pursuing a career in mixed martial arts. But one has to wonder, what got a woman interested in the switch from cheering to fighting? "Last year, I was a Chiefs Cheerleader. I have been a cheerleader or dancer my whole life and I moved here from Arkansas to cheer for the Kansas City Chiefs. I started working out at Title Boxing Club with some of the girls for an alternative workout," Wray said. "I really enjoyed it and started taking private lessons after a little while. One day, I came in and they wanted me to spar. I was nervous about someone actually punching me in the face, but I did it."
