I’m going to Vegas! I’ve always wanted to go to Las Vegas.

So I’ve decided to go to The Ultimate Fighter try outs. At first, a fan-friend on Twitter linked me, saying “Are you getting ready for the TUF tryouts?” I thought he was joking. Then my arch rival and best female fighter friend Tara LaRosa Tweeted something about Joe Rogan’s reaction to females in TUF, and I thought, “Wait, what?!?”

Crazy! It’s awesome crazy! I’m so excited the UFC is making TUF with women!
But should I actually go? Can I leave my job for six weeks? Probably not? Should I quit my job? No?! Leave Japan? What should I do? GAH!

My brain was spinning. My dream was to be the first female fighter in the UFC. That didn’t happen. This may be a new dream come true: become the first ultimate fighter!

Return to 135 lbs. Go to try-outs and try to get into the house. I talked to my boss. He told me to go to try outs and we’ll take it from there. I love my boss. I might not love him after he tells me I can’t take two months leave of absence, but we’ll see. I have to be selected first. I will be! I must be! POSITIVE THINkING! PICK MEEE! Who knows how many women are going? There’s only one weight division. I bet you that we’ll have big women trying to cut down, and smaller women coming up.

I watched Roundup Roundup and Kristin was talking about the women she’d like to see on the TUF. She posted these pics of these REALLY BIG MUSCULAR WOMEN, and I’m like @__@; daaaaamn.

I have to believe in myself. I have skill. I haven’t been doing well lately in my career. I want to get back on the winning streak. This is my big chance. I have to get vacation from work, fly all the way from Japan, but I’d hate myself if I didn’t try it.

I’m so excited. It’s all I can think about from the moment I wake up to the minute I go to sleep. My teammate Steve is going, too! GroundSlam gaikokujin-bu! My mom encouraged me to go to try outs.

I’ll do my best ! I’m not the most beautiful fighter ever…. I refuse to wear make up to the interview. I don’t wanna pose shirt-less. 🙁 I hope they still like me! 😀

They will! I know it! I’ll make them like me! I’ll charm their socks off! 😀 Should I wear my crocodile ones? XD hahaha
