Undefeated Women’s 135-Pound Prospect Lauren Taylor Shooting for the Top


Lauren TaylorLegacy FC women’s 135-pound prospect Lauren Taylor knows that the fight game is a work in progress, and that’s fine with her, as her work ethic is one of her defining features.

“The biggest thing about me that maybe other women don’t have is that I’m going to out-work every single one of them,” she said following her Legacy 18 victory over Jennifer Scott on March 1.

“I’m going to out-work them in the gym and if they beat me it’s not going to be for lack of hard work or preparation.”

Taylor’s work ethic targeted at continually get better not only comes through in the gym, but in her fights as well, as evidenced by her win over Scott.

“I’m not entirely thrilled that she was getting the better of me on the feet,” said Taylor. “I’ve watched the video of it a couple times and once I started to relax I started to do a little bit better.

“I’m a huge fan of throwing elbows on the ground. I don’t even punch when I’m on the ground anymore. (Throwing elbows) just comes natural. Once I had her on the ground, I knew it was over.”

The TKO victory raises Taylor’s record to 5-0, making her one of Legacy’s top female fighters. Still, while she’s enjoying where she’s at in the company, it’s where she can test herself against other top female fighters in her weight class where she ultimately wants to find herself.

“The 135-pound division is full of really talented females,” said Taylor. “I’d like to make a name for myself and I think even with the toughest women out there, I can put on a good show and hang with them.

“I think what fans can expect to see from me each fight is the best Lauren Taylor they’ve ever seen. I’m going to work on improving as fast as I can. And while I might not always pull out a win, I guarantee it’s definitely going to be a fight everyone’s going to want to see.”
