Injury and its Mental Warfare with World Champion Zoila Frausto | TMTG #110

Former Bellator World Champion & WBC National Champion Zoila Frausto

Zoila Frausto is an original gangster of all combat sports (MMA, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, and Boxing) who has held the prestigious Bellator World Title and WBC National Title. She has recently had her hand raised on the world stage for Glory Kickboxing and Triumphant Muay Thai.

The gold and glory, however, has come at a cost to Zoila’s personal life, physical health and a rollercoaster of financials highs and lows. Zoila had her dreams crushed when she tore her ACL for the second time in her career, all during a critical time when the UFC’s Ultimate Fighter show was looking to star the “Warrior Princess” in their upcoming season.

After what some may consider as an accomplished and historical run, it would be easy to say “I guess it’s a sign. . . it’s my time. . .”. Instead, Zoila stepped back into the ring after knee reconstruction to put on a flawless performance at Triumphant Combat Sports 5, sending a message to every woman in the division that she is far from finished. This is the story of perseverance, a modeling example of a woman who has owned up to everything the world had to throw in her way:
