She is serious about it..
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Miss United States 2012 Whitney Miller revealed that she would like to attempt an MMA career. Here are highlights:
On trying MMA: "I want to see how I feel. I want to go in there and I want to know if I really want to do this. If I decide that it's not for me, and it's a job and it's not fun anymore, I'll do something else. But right now, this is what's fun."
On discovering Brazilian jiu-jitsu: "Now, I'm addicted to it. It was just super challenging to me. Pageantry is about this super lean body that's skinny and looks good on the stage and in the lights, but this is just very, very challenging."
On her parents being against it: "One of the reasons they're so resistant to it is that they don't understand the sport, and also I'm their daughter, and they don't want to see me get hurt. But they're starting to open up a little bit to BJJ. As of right now, MMA is completely closed off. They don't even want to talk about it."
