Miranda Maverick is juggling studies with a promising UFC career
Miranda Maverick wants to be making her mark in the world doing something other than fighting by the time she’s 30. At that point, she’ll use the degrees in psychology and sociology she’s already earned, as well as the Ph.D. she’s working on in industrial/organization psychology. “I’m big about prioritizing schedule,” said Maverick. “I still get stressed. There is a lot of mental stress that comes along with the training, the fighting, my job, school, all of that together. I’ve had to learn to prioritize. To me right now, fighting in the camp, that’s the No. 1 priority, then school, then work and my social life comes last.”
“The people who really care about me want me to accomplish my goals and they know what it takes,” she said. “My school will be over in the fall, and then I’ll have less to worry about, so I’ll be able to put more of my focus on fighting. And I’m really excited about what I can do when I have that time to focus more on training, nutrition, all of those kinds of things that lead to success in this business.”
