Janai Harding is a hot beauty with steel fists
The names of men, stars of mixed martial arts, are on everyone's lips. Things are much worse in women's MMA, where even the best are known mainly by connoisseurs of this sport. And this is bad, because among the female fighters there are such persons as Janay Harding. Yes, against the background of other eminent athletes, her successes look modest. But on the other hand, this girl is beautiful and feminine despite being engaged in a completely non-female sport.
Janay Harding was born in New Zealand, in the city of Christchurch on September 28, 1994. Her family belongs to the indigenous population - Maori. Moreover, Janai's grandfather was a relative of the royal family, although he did not like to talk about it. The family did not live like a king at all. My father constantly drank and then left the house, then returned. Over time, the girl's mother got tired of this and, having taken her daughter, she moved to live in Australia.
Janai was only 10 years old when she and her mother arrived in the big city of the Gold Coast, on the southeast coast of Australia. From luggage they had only two suitcases and a guitar. We can say that life had to start from scratch, and it was not easy at all. To help her mother, Janai had to wash cars all day in parking lots near supermarkets.
A year after the move, her father died. Despite the riotous lifestyle, Janai loved him. The father also did not forget his only daughter, and they called each other until his death. The girl was able to visit his grave only a year later. Later, she will say about her father like this:
Despite the difficult life, Harding studied well and grew up as an obedient and responsible child. She became interested in sports at school. At first, the girl was fascinated by team sports: basketball and volleyball. But then Janai began to practice karate and at the age of 14 received a black belt. At the age of 15, she first came to the MMA gym, where her mother worked.
It was exactly what she needed. For five years, Harding trained hard and competed in local competitions. And at the age of 20, she first appeared as a professional fighter, under the name "Hollowpoint" ("Bullet with an empty tip").
Such a pseudonym was not chosen by chance. This ammunition is used for hunting large game. It is small in size, but when it hits the target, it turns around and leaves a terrible wound. Janai hinted at not judging her by her looks.
But karate and MMA weren't the only martial arts Harding did. Once she went on vacation to Thailand and attended the Thai boxing championship there. What she saw impressed her so much that the girl stayed in a foreign country for six months. During this time, Janai has achieved good success in this sport and even defended the honor of the Tiger Muay Thai hall in competitions.
But Muay Thai was more of a hobby. Harding won the main victories in MMA tournaments. To date, the athlete has had 13 fights, of which she won 5 and lost 8. Not impressive? But it is important to consider that Harding won almost all of her victories by knockout, and this is worth a lot.
Janai Harding doesn't just focus on sports. She has many hobbies, which she regularly devotes time to. One of them is video games. The girl loves to fight online and prefers the popular Call of Duty and Fortnite shooters. She says that her addiction to games began in childhood. She and her mother and grandmother often played primitive arcade games on the console, the names of which she no longer remembers.
Janai Harding is also active on social media. She willingly communicates with fans in the comments, although in ordinary life, excessive attention bothers her. The athlete considers herself an introvert and wants not to be pestered in her free time from performances. The beauty prefers the company of her cat with the unusual name Saber (“Saber-toothed”) to the society of people. Sometimes she even takes him to the gym with her for training.
