MMA star explains how OnlyFans page has supported her career in sport
'I don't have to get another job'
An up and coming MMA fighter has explained how her OnlyFans page has helped to support her career. Currently out with an injury, Kay Hansen has turned to the site to make some money so she can pour extra time into making her comeback.
Hansen has just returned to Invicta FC after leaving the UFC after her last three consecutive fights were dropped.
Hansen hasn't fought since April due to being sidelined by a hand injury and while she has been criticised for running an OnlyFans page, the 23-year-old can only see the benefits from it. Speaking to MMA Junkie she said:
"I feel like a lot of people knock it, and I understand everyone has their opinion, but at the end of the day, it allows me to make the training schedule I want.
"I don’t have to get another job working a 9-to-5, you know what I mean? So it allows me to structure my camps and focus on what really matters, and that’s fighting."
'I’m looking to fight as soon as possible' - Kay Hansen
While she remains ruled out with injury, Kay Hansen is hoping that she will be able to make a return in the first few months of 2023.
"Right now I have a fractured hand, so I’m waiting on that to heal," she added.
"And once that heals, I’m looking to fight as soon as possible in the beginning of 2023. But I have to make sure my hand is healed before I do that."
The 23-year-old made four appearances in the UFC octagon before being released. Her debut was a win against Jinh Yu Frey in 2020 however, her last three fights were not as successful.
Cory McKenna, Jasmine Jasudavicius, and most recently Piera Rodriguez all beat Hansen and in her most recent defeat to Rodriguez, she missed the weight cut by 2.5 pounds.
