This week Andy headed off to Chile with her bff and training partner at Karate Mafia, Andrea “KGB” Lee and Andrea’s husband and head coach Donny Aaron.
Andrea will be making her much anticipated fly weight debut, when she takes on the highly experienced Veronica Macedo.
Veronica is stepping down from bantamweight to flyweight. Whilst Andrea, also known as “KGB”, is a former LFA flyweight champion and has also dominated the competition at Invicta FC, earning victories over the likes of Rachael Ostovich and Ariel Beck. Amongst other ‘TUF’ standouts.
Saturday will give the Karate Mafia alumni the opportunity to place herself firmly into the still forming 125 flyweight rankings, and possibly make a short road case for a shot at UFC gold if she can walk away with a strong finish.
Andy and Donny will be in Andrea’s corner on fight night. Just as Andrea and Donny are usually in Andy’s corner for all of her fights.
I touched base with Andy very quickly between media shoots and events, to get a quick feel for how the team is going and how she felt the general mood was.
Thank gawd Reebok gave me some awesome gear! It’s F**cking COLD!! LOL! – Andy said.
But aside from this, everything is going well. We’re pigging out on some great food while Andrea gets to watch while she cuts weight. You know we’re the perfect support for her and all! LoL
I tease her and think of yummy food, and Donny is the one who ACTUALLY goes that extra step buys it and eats it! That’s coach motivation and dedication! Lol!
“Tough love and all that!” 🤪
Nah but seriously, we are like a family in a lot of ways. We just have this amazing bond. So we all know the support is there, and if anyone need’s ANYTHING at all…
Someone will make sure we figure out how to sort it out and get it, or sort ot out for them. That’s just the way we work. Everything is good.
As for the current mood, Andrea is pretty much in her zone already. She doesn’t get too stressed. And once the weight cut is over, it’s just focus on that Win!
I think people that don’t know, or have not YET heard of Andrea, yet will know about her by the end of the week!
It’s all about going out there and having fun and she’s got all the tools to win. So I’m confident we will be celebrating with a few beers afterwards.
