Jessica Philippus, Professional Atomweight MMA fighter, Coach, Mom, CBL lover. She started wrestling on the boys team as a freshman in High school on a dare and fell in love with it. Years after collegiate wrestling was behind her, she decided to give MMA a try; she went 8-1 as the #1 ranked amateur 105lb fighter and is now 1-1 as a pro. After years of poor weight management she went on a mission for credible and scientific nutrition info to help fuel her athletic endeavors and manage her weight in a healthy way. This is how she discovered Kiefer, Carb Nite® and CBL. She used CBL principles to train for her last fight and managed to gain muscle while losing fat; leading to the easiest weight cut and best performance she has ever had in her career.
