Veronica Hardy is an American professional mixed martial artist. She currently competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s (UFC) women’s bantamweight division. Born in Cleveland, Ohio on March 19th, 1988, Veronica was exposed to martial arts early on and was encouraged by her family to pursue it as a career. She began training in BJJ and Muay Thai at age 15 after watching a few UFC fights with her brother.

Veronica quickly established herself as an outstanding fighter competing in amateur MMA events while still maintaining focus on academics throughout high school and college where she earned a degree in business management. After graduating from college she turned pro becoming the inaugural champion of the XFC women’s bantamweight division during 2013-2014 season – making history as the first woman to win this title for that organization.

After entering into several other MMA organizations such as Legacy FC & Invicta FC, Veronica eventually signed with the UFC back in 2017 moving up to their 135lbs weight class where she has since become one of their top rising stars due to her impressive skill set and technical prowess inside of the octagon. With wins over notable opponents such as Raquel Pennington & Julianna Pena among others, Veronica has firmly cemented herself amongst some of today’s best female MMA fighters within this weight class gaining fans all around the world with each amazing performance put forth by her inside of UFC fight night cards across multiple cities worldwide

Veronicas hard work & dedication have also gained recognition outside of combat sports leading sponsorships with major companies like Reebook who recently launched their “Make Moves” campaign featuring both men & women athletes who are changing society through their work within sports entertainment or related fields which showcased Veronica prominently alongside several other well known names throughout mainstream media outlets both television & online further expanding not only her brand but also her influence towards inspiring young minds everywhere regardless if they are interested in fighting or not .

Despite being considered one of today’s premier female fighters within mixed martial arts , what many people don’t know about is how humble& gracious she remains when interacting outside competitively inside or out whether it be teaching classes at local gyms , giving talks/interviews about overcoming adversity during difficult times undergoing injuries/setbacks etc., participating charity efforts for those less fortunate than ourselves despite any differences we may have allowing everyone involved come together toward achieving common goals –and most importantly caring deeply for animals dedicating much time towards animal rescue advocating against abusing these creatures so unfortunate enough unable defend themselves from those willing take advantage them ..all while continuously pursuing championship gold becoming one greatest fighters ever compete inside ufc’s cage legendary status perhaps even enshrined hall fame someday future..
