Demi Lovato turns attention to fighting, wants UFC bout
Demi Lovato has been training like a lion for the bloody cage.
The “Confident” singer, 24, has been savagely training for months and is reportedly pursuing to conquer another performance stage: the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) ring.
In an interview with TMZ Sports, Jay Glazer, who trains the pop star at the Unbreakable Performance Center in Hollywood, praised her for her dexterity and stamina.
“She throws elbows better than most of the UFC guys that come in there,” Glazer told TMZ on Monday. “She’s definitely one of our fighters, without a doubt.” When asked if she had aspirations to surge her ferociousness in the MMA ring, he replied, “She’s brought it up to us a million times.”
“She has the mindset. I wish I could bottle up her mind-set and sell it to all the guys in the UFC…She’s a bad little lioness. Don’t mess with her,” the veteran coach concluded.
Moreover, the pop star has been documenting her progress on Instagram in the past few months.
Surprisingly, Lovato is reportedly dating UFC superstar Luke Rockhold.
Lovato announced last week that she planned to abort her music career in 2017 to focus on charity work. Would this be a clear sign that she might dazzle in a fight card, too? Gianna Francesca Catolico
