"It was pretty normal for me, because I believed in myself. I always believe in myself, because I have to fight boys a lot," Apolonia told MySA. "It's a good thing going with boys, because I get pushed harder — they're stronger and faster and bigger."

Apolonia told MySA that her goal is to fight in the UFC Octagon. With her skills as a 9-year-old, that certainly seems attainable.
