“After every wrestling practice I do 10 suplex’s it’s definitely much harder when your training partner is a 160 lb male. But then when I go against girls my size it’s like I’m throwing babies”
On Wednesday, UFC strawweight contender Felice Herrig posted a video of herself taking one of her male training partners to Suplex City.
Herrig posted a video of herself giving a 160-pound male training partner 10 suplexes on her Instagram. She says she does this after every wrestling practice. Herrig also said it’s harder to suplex men, but when she suplexes women “it’s like throwing babies.”
Herrig is already back in the gym training after picking up the biggest win of her UFC career. On Feb. 4, Herrig won a decision against previously unbeaten Alexa Grasso. Herrig’s win came as an upset due to Grasso being one of the top prospects of the UFC women’s strawweight division.
Herrig is currently on a two-fight win streak. In her previous fight, she submitted Kailin Curran in July.
After her win against Grasso, Herrig requested a rematch against Paige VanZant, who is the only woman to defeat Herrig in the UFC.
