This week’s episode packs quite a punch as I’m joined by fighter Irene Aldana fresh off of her big win at UFC 267. We get into her victory, what it means for her ranking, and who she’s looking forward to stepping into the octagon with next. We also get the play-by-play of her victory celebration in Las Vegas amongst family and friends. 

Irene opens up about her family connection to Malagueña Salerosa, and why she believes she was blessed by the spirit of the Deathbat before this last fight. We chat music and find out some of Irene’s favorite concerts (spoiler: Avenged Sevenfold is on the list!) We also get into some of Irene’s favorite snacks, video games, and more. 

The conversation takes a swing back towards fighting as we get into Irene’s introduction to MMA. We discover how she was able to transform herself from a cheerleader to a pure bred fighting machine, and why she knew that she was born to be competitive at heart. We touch on Irene’s plans after her MMA career, and why pro wrestling isn’t an option. We chat about training, tequila, Fight Island, cats, bats, and so much more so sit back, make a cocktail, and enjoy the latest serving of Drinks With Johnny!
