Fighting, both as a fighter and spectator/supporter, has been a big part of Emily Fisher's life. Between operating a gym run by and training with her husband, UFC fighter Spencer Fisher, Emily Fisher is part of a growing subset of MMA fighters, those who don't necessarily fight for the money or the fame but the self-respect and pleasure of accomplishment. The days spent preparing in the gym translate into confidence in other aspects of life, and the exhilaration of a fight simply can't be matched in day jobs or other errand tasks. Emily, 3-1 and preparing for her 5th fight in May, is one of a growing breed of part-time fighters who accept the business of MMA as part of their lives.

Having met Spencer at UFC 90 in Chicago, I can honestly say that he is the nicest MMA fighter that I have EVER met. I wish him and his wife nothing but the best!!

It's cool to see this kind of thing. I wish Emily the best of luck in her career in the future. I can't wait for Spencer's next fight against Uno, either.

I'm impressed by how some of these "part-time fighters" are able to balance fighting, personal, and professional lives outside of MMA. Sounds like Emily's following in the footsteps of probably the best example of this so far-Shane Carwin. He has a full-time day job and calls himself a part-time fighter too.
