Update: Former Chiefs Cheerleader, Razorback, MMA Star Rachel Wray



UPDATE: May 14, 2014

News from Rachel Wray’s Facebook fan page says this:

“Just got word Rachel has a Pro-Am card in Tupelo, Mississippi on June 7th. No opponent yet but at least she is head back to the cage.”

Road trip to Tupelo, anyone?

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.

We can now add “cover girl” to the list of Rachel Wray’s accomplishments. Congratulations Rachel and thank you for sharing.


A few weeks ago we introduced you to Rachel Wray, a former University of Arkansas student and Kansas City Chiefs cheerleader turned Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) star.

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.
