Marion Reneau’s career before the UFC

Marion Reneau made her pro MMA debut in 2010 and won her first fight by TKO in the third round against Chantelle Castellanos. She lost her next fight, against Julia Avila at TWC 13 – Impact by decision but rebounded to start a winning streak that would lead her all the way to the UFC.

She won three straight fights by finish in the first round (1 KO, 1 TKO and 1 submission) against Lydia Reyes, Leslie Rodriguez and Maureen Riordon. After the  submission of Riordon, she was awarded a contract with the UFC.

She had tried out for The Ultimate Fighter before but was told she was too old, but if she continued to win she would get an offer eventually.
