The Sports Illustrated 2016 swimsuit model search winner and their Swimsuit rookie of the year in 2017 has been preparing for her opening bout.
It has been reported the model, who has thousands of followers on social media, has been living with other fighters in Thailand while being on a training camp.
The 28-year-old says she discovered the sport whilst away on holiday.
She told People Magazine: “By throwing myself into this sport.
“I learned to love my body and respect my body, I learned how to nourish it and to treat it with respect.”
She added: “I got a lot bigger, I gained muscle, I have definition, I have abs.
“I can do things with my body that I never thought I could do in terms of athleticism and fitness.
“As I developed and progressed in the sport, everything that has happened to my body, I’ve embraced it and welcomed it.
“The self-love and appreciation that I learned from Muay Thai coupled with booking Sports Illustrated gave me confidence.”
She is expected to announce her fight will take place in Koh Samui, Thailand, in early May.
