Legacy

In the world of professional Mixed Martial Arts, Nikki Lowe stands out as one of the few Native Americans competing in the sport today. A fighter inside and outside of the cage, she continually strives to maintain her cultural identity as a Chickasaw Native, and is now focused on healing her body and soul from the latest tragedy to emerge in her life. She is beginning that recovery process by using both M.M.A and her warrior spirit.
