Meet the Instructors


Chelsea Conner

Chelsea found her passion for Mixed Martial Arts right after graduating high school. She had plans to join the Marine Corps. When that dream became unachievable she decided to dedicate her focus to MMA.  Chelsea competed in her first MMA fight in 2009, when she was 18 years old and was instantly hooked! Since then Chelsea has had two beautiful children, competed in many different grappling and MMA competitions. As an amateur fighter she had an impressive record of 7-1 and held many championship titles in 2 different weight classes. Chelsea received fight of the night or submission of the night honors in all of her 8 amateur fights, earning Bluegrass MMA’s Amateur Fight Of The Year in 2015.


Chelsea made her Pro-debut in 2017 and signed with King Of The Cage shortly after her first professional fight. With Chelsea’s impressive fighting style she quickly earned a shot to fight for King Of The Cage’s Professional Straw-weight World Title. Chelsea is very passionate about Mixed Martial Arts and empowering everyone, especially women to become confident and strong.
