It’s been 3 days since I set up my blog and I’ve procrastinated ever since in trying to decide on where to start, what I would even write about and how I can best tell my story and share my journey as a professional fighter.
Most of you reading this would have been directed here from my social media accounts and therefore know who I am and what I do. But for those who don’t, let me introduce myself..
My name is Arlene ‘Angerfist’ Blencowe. I am a professional athlete who competes in MMA (mixed martial arts) and Boxing. Formerly a 2x World Boxing Champion I have since turned my attention to MMA. Being the first Australian female signed to Bellator MMA and currently ranked #5 featherweight in the world. I’m chasing the Bellator World Title, with the ultimate goal to be a World Champion Boxer and MMA fighter.
I’ve sat upon the idea of wanting to write an autobiography about my journey from being a 26yr old mother of two children to becoming a world champion and fighting on the world stage. Many people have said that it is a story worth telling and sharing. This is the reason why I am starting this blog.
The Angerfist Journal will include content about my fight career, the highs a lows of fight camp and competition, my mindset and things I do to overcome mental hurdles, day to day life of juggling family, work and training commitments.. basically a diary of my life!
