Meet 9-Year-Old MMA Fighter Caitlin “Meathook” Kelley

By: Winona Dimeo-Ediger / May 10, 2012

Caitlin Kelley may seem like a normal 9-year-old with pink hair and a major Justin Bieber obsession, but she’s actually a formidable force in the Mixed Martial Arts world, ranked 13th in the United States in submission grappling. And if that’s not enough to impress you, get this: her nickname is “Meathook.” Check out her training regimen in this surprisingly adorable interview–I especially love the way she giggles while describing the joys of beating boys in the ring. Rock on, Caitlin. Someday I’d like to shake your hand, although I’m not sure my hand would survive the encounter. [Youtube via The Mary Sue]
