Hey Vanessa, what would you say is the best thing about your MAXIM shoot?
Reaching a new audience outside of the USA.
What do you do when you’re not posing for us?
I’m probably having a cheat day at one of my favourite restaurants. Yum!
How would you describe yourself in five words?
Adventurous, independent, eccentric, playful and clumsy.
When do you feel sexy?
After I’ve just finished a workout and feel at my strongest.
What are you really passionate about?
Nature, food, and making people happy.
And what do you think is your best asset?
Not taking myself too seriously.
What can you beat anyone at?
Super Smash Bros..
What’s the best thing about being a UFC Octagon Girl?
Travelling around the world and the fans, of course!
Have you had any really embarrassing moments in the cage?
Yes, walking around the Octagon with a piece of chocolate stuck to my butt. #talented
What are you looking forward to the most about UFC 193 in Melbourne, Victoria?
The main event! Ronda Rousey is one of my favourite fighters. I’ve been ringside for most of her fights a handful of times now and love watching her grow with every fight.
Have you ever been to Australia?
No, I haven’t, but I’ve always wanted to visit! I would love to see the beaches, indigenous animals and try some authentic food. I just love my food!
What do you love most about Down Under?
Every Australian I’ve met is down for a good time and doesn’t take themselves too seriously.
So, how do Australian men compare to US guys?
Growing up next to the beach I think they are very similar to the men in California. Their accents are definitely a plus, though!

If he can make me laugh, he’s halfway there.

An outdoor activity followed by good food and good wine.
What’s the weirdest thing you find attractive in a man?

It’s the little things that mean the most.
If you could go back in time, what piece of advice would you give your teenage self?
None of this will matter in five years.
What was the last thing to make you LOL?
Amy Schumer’s stand-up.
Finally, finish this sentence: Public nudity is…
Never the person you want to see nude.
