LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Each week Craig brings out an interesting little tidbit about Arkansas history or culture, but on Thursday night, I had something a little bit different.
I wanted to bring out something unusual about the people that work here at THV 11, so I turned the spotlight on someone in the sport department-Jessica Duff.
Jessica reports sports stories and is also the sports producer. She is a bundle of energy, albeit not a very big one.
"I am exactly 5 feet tall," she confirmed.
But, what you don't know about Jessica is that she practices and fights in Mixed Martial Arts at a gym down the street from her home in West Little Rock.
"It's an incredible workout, and it's something different. It's nothing you picture girls doing--especially someone my size. I'm a very competitive person, so needless to say, this is a great way for me to exploit that, and there's not a lot of girls in there, so I'm working out with guys," she explained. "So, when I beat a guy that's my size or bigger, it's like 'Wow!'"
But, Jessica has not been fighting MMA for the past nine months as she'll soon go from MMA to MAMMA. She will, however, return to the ring as soon as she can.
