MMA Fighter joins Fueled by Verge

Joining Fueled By Verge is Reena Norville, our 115lb pocket dynamo ready to light up the MMA scene after a faultless amateur career.

Whilst Reena gained a scholarship at Gonzaga University, Spokane, Washington studying Psychology and Criminal Justice, she earned a walk on spot on the Soccer team at both Varsity and Freshman level. But she suffered a devastating on field injury. A blown out knee brought her soccer skills to sudden halt.

Graduating in 2010 during the recession wasn’t ideal, as Reena struggled to find a job, picking up waitressing work where she could whilst recovering. Her step dad got her a general contractor internship with a Construction company in Phoenix, Arizona. This then took her to various places in the States and abroad including the UK, Israel, Germany, Holland, Spain and Turkey.

Reena, has never been one to allow challenges to get in the way of continuing to improve her life. Her passion for making her sports career a success, comes from a childhood of dotted with trials and tribulations, which instilled a belief in herself, rooted in overcoming adversity in life.

Reena had to deal with family troubles and severe depression, building a strength and self belief, that has grown and she has channeled into a competitive edge that has given Reena the drive and ambition to become the best in her class.

On returning to the US, she decided she didn’t want to put pressure on her knee in returning to Soccer, but wanted to return to sports, so she joined a gym and got turned on to Kick Boxing. She loved it so much she dedicated herself to becoming good enough to compete. This manifested itself into becoming the MMA Amateur California State Champion as well as the Spar Star Promotions winner.

A 4–0 amateur start encouraged Reena to go Pro and she has embarked on her professional career. The step up from Amateur to Professional has been significant, and although Reena clearly battered her last opponent, a points decision went against her, and Reena sits 0–2 to date, readying herself for her first official win.

Julian Gregorio, from Upgrade Marketing Group, Reena’s management team said; ‘We are excited to have Reena join the Fueled by Verge Movement. We are looking forward to working with the Team and scaling out to a whole new audience with in the Verge Fam’!

We know Reena will achieve this, just as she has everything else in her life to date.

Welcome Reena, we are delighted to have you fighting for our team.
