Marion Reneau is an American mixed martial artist and former police officer with twenty-one professional fights in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). She currently competes in the bantamweight division.
Reneau was born in San Diego, California on April 8, 1977. At a young age, she was trained by her father to be an athlete and compete in sports such as soccer, basketball, swimming and track & field. After high school she attended junior college before moving to Oregon where she worked for three years as a police officer for the Klamath Falls Police Department.
During that time Reneau began practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu which led her to start training MMA full time when she left the Police Department. A month later she made her amateur debut at Gladiator Challenge: Beatdown inside of Oregon’s Chinook Winds Casino Resort, winning via first round submission due to strikes. Additionally yet another impressive victory earned “The Belizean Bruiser” recognition from Invicta FC who quickly signed her on a multi-fight deal and had her make her promotional debut at their third event against Julia Budd where she would lose by decision.
Reneau has since gone 4–1–1 in Invicta before signing with the UFC later that year after being offered multiple contracts from other promotions including Bellator MMA but turning them all down just so he could fight for Dana White’s promotion instead. Her Octagon debut came opposite Jessica Andrade whom Marion fought back ‘n forth until late into round two only to lose via armbar submission seconds away from potentially going home as victor after what was described as “the most exciting battle between female fighters in recent history”.
After suffering four defeats within five bouts following this particular match up Marion bounced back with consecutive victories over Ashlee Evans Smith followed by Talita Bernardo and Sara McMann respectively earning herself Fight of The Night honors once again after three rounds of nonstop action against McMann last July 2018 during UFC Fight Night 133 making it six post-fight awards collected throughout professional career – four Performance bonuses plus two Submission awards apiece one each promoted organization’s respective events inside Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino located out of Lemoore City CA while competing under both The Ultimate Fighter banner alongside Invicta Fighting Championships thus far thru 2021 today here we stand..
