Kay Hansen reacts to $37k bet on her, Ronda Rousey props after UFC on ESPN 12

Strawweight Kay Hansen was in line at Starbucks when UFC matchmakers called. Less than one week later, she had a new contract, octagon win and props from her MMA inspiration.

Hansen spoke to reporters after her first-round armbar of Jinh Yu Frey on the prelims of UFC on ESPN 12, which took place on Saturday at UFC APEX. She spoke about former bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey – the reason she got into the sport – tweeting encouragement, one fan’s lucky bet, and more.
