Our favorite MMA/Former Razorback Cheerleader Rachel Wray brings her fighting talents to Little Rock next month, and we are quite excited about that. The date is set, but Wray is still looking for an opponent. We wish her will in finding one.
Wray, the Kansas City Chiefs cheerleader-turned-MMA fighter, tells FOXSportsKansasCity.com that she’ll return to the cage Aug. 24 — and she’ll be fighting for the first time in her native Arkansas, at the Clear Channel Metroplex in Little Rock.
Mind you, the next part is the toughest: Sealing the deal with an opponent.

Once again... Wrestling practice makes me wonder why I gave up professional cheerleading to be an mma fighter #fml— Rachel Wray (@CheerleaderMMA) January 23, 2013
As it turns out, Wray has a fight at Harrah’s Casino in Kansas City, Jan. 25, 2013, and we stumbled upon pre-fight video featuring her and her opponent in tomorrow night’s match, Katelyn Radtka.
In the spirit of covering all things sporty, we had to share.
We know we’re supposed to remain as objective as possible here at the sports desk, but we’d be lying if we told you we weren’t rooting for Ms. Wray in this one.
We agree with her tweet Thursday evening:
