Childhood and Adolescence

Angela Magana was born on August 10, 1985, to a heroin addict mother. She grew up on the streets of Los Angeles, where she resided until she was five years old. She had to eat the food that was left in the garbage cans and dustbins on numerous occasions. While eating from garbage cans and leftover food on the streets became a habit for Angels, she did have a silver lining when her grandparents gained control of her.

Despite the fact that she was in a better place in life, her traumatic issues came back to haunt her on a regular basis. Angela’s mother died of a heroin overdose when she was just 17 years old, leaving another scar on her heart.
Having to deal with such traumas at such a young age, on the other hand, simply made her more self-reliant and powerful. Her father isn’t mentioned at all. Angela discovered wrestling while dealing with her troubles and battling for her life on a daily basis, and she fell in love with the notion of becoming a wrestler. She claims it came easy to her, and she also enjoyed athletics as a child.

Career in Wrestling

Angela made her MMA debut against Tial Castillo in ‘The Gladiator Challenge’ on March 23rd, 2007. She defeated KTO in the first round. When she tapped out to Jessica Aguilar, she suffered her first defeat. Her following two fights were both won by submission. Angela faced Jessica again at WFC 6, where she was defeated by a questionable submission. Angela went to the refree because she claimed Jessica’s blood had gotten into her eye. It was misunderstood for verbal submission by Refree.

At FCF 19, she faced Nicdali Rivera-Calanoc and won a split decision. Angela won a majority decision over Jessica in the opening round of the HOOKnSHOOT Fight 2009 Grand Prix. In the semifinals of the ‘HnS GFight2009 Grand Prix,’ she faced and defeated Van Do via rear-naked choke. She did, however, lose in the finals against Lisa Huga by unanimous decision. Jessica Penne, the ‘Invicta FC Atomweight Champion,’ was also defeated by submission.
She fought her way back with a three-fight winning streak, including one against Barb Honchak. Angela also fights in The Ultimate Fighter’s Strawweight Championship. At TUF 20, she competed in the division.

She faced Aisling Daly in Episode 6 of The Ultimate Fighter and lost through KTO in round three.
Angela made her UFC debut against Tecia Torres at ‘The Ultimate Fighter 20 Finale.’ She was beaten by a unanimous vote. She came back in to face ‘Invicta FC Atomweight Champion’. Michelle Waterson competed in The Ultimate Fighter 21 but was defeated by submission. At UFC 218 on December 2, 2017, she will face Amanda Cooper, the runner-up in The Ultimate Fighter: Team Joanna vs. Team Cláudia.

Personal History and Legacy

Angela has had a difficult existence, from living on the streets to losing her mother at a young age; she has had to work extremely hard since she was a child to make ends meet. She even damaged her back in 2007 after falling down the stairs, but her will to live was so strong that she returned to the cage and fought shortly after her recovery.
When that didn’t deter her from pursuing her passion, life threw another tragic event her way. She was involved in two terrible car accidents while filming a documentary.

She claims she was getting ready for a fight with Carla Esparza when she was involved in the first accident. Her second accident was considerably worse; the videographer lost his thumb, and she spent two to three days in a coma and ten days in the hospital. Doctors said she wouldn’t be able to walk, let alone fight, but Angela, who had always been a warrior, saw it as a challenge and worked even harder to reclaim her life. She returned to the ring and won. She understood how it felt to lose everything in the blink of an eye, so she opted to fight rather than surrender.

She claims that the belt is only for show, but she is a champion in reality. It is undeniable. Her tragic childhood and near-death experiences, she believes, shaped her into a very strong person and shaped her into her best self. She is also the mother of Delilah Magana, who is her only child. Although no information about the father has been discovered, it is reported that she has been fighting for custody of her daughter for some time.

She used to live in Thailand with Delilah, but she had to relocate to the United States after her daughter’s father filed a case. She and her daughter are currently residing in Puerto Rico. She was also thought to be engaged, but fate intervened in her love life as well, as her fiancé died before they could marry. Angela and fellow MMA fighter Cris Cyborg got into a brawl after Angela made a connection between Cris Cyborg and Billy the Puppet from Saw. Cris took the humour personally, and the situation escalated into a brawl. According to several witnesses, Magana was hit by the Cris and her tooth was knocked out.

Angela stated that she intends to file charges against her adversary for assaulting her. The incident became infamous, and it is still discussed in the wrestling industry. She most recently refused to leave her home in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Irma, despite police warnings that she should.
