Kyra Batara started training in MMA in May 2008 when I was only 13 years old out of Team Quest in Portland, OR. Her father initially convinced Kyra to begin training as a way to keep her more physically fit and active. Since then Batara has taken to submission wrestling and jiu-jitsu like a fish to water. Eventually, she made her transition to MMA winning both the 100lb and 115lb Amateur Tuff-N-Uff belts in her new hometown of Las Vegas, NV. Kyra now represents 10th Planet Las Vegas and regularly competes in grappling tournaments and superfights outside of MMA competition.
