She's been in the news as of late she is competing on the January nineteenth card against page vans. At you found out about this fight probably back in. I think August it was first reported by funding dot com, and it has come in and out of the news for various reasons, and she is going to join us via the magic a Skype. Back in mid November, November eighteenth to beat Zach news came out that she was hospitalized early November eighteenth suffering from a broken orbital bone a day or so later, we found out that her husband a mixed martial arts. Fighter named Arnold Burdon was arrested on suspicion of second degree attempted murder. And that Rachel had been granted a temporary restraining order against her husband on November twenty first we found out that Burdon was charged with second degree assault. And on November twenty six we found out that he pleaded not guilty and that his self his claim would be self defense. When the issue goes to trial. That would be the preliminary hill hearing would be on February eighteenth. So that's when we first found out, and we found out about the news in mid November. And then we found out that she would most likely not remain on the card against patriots on January nineteenth. But very shortly thereafter, we found out that she was going to remain on the card that it was her call that she wanted to keep fighting that it was very important for her to keep fighting put out a wonderful statement about wanting to keep going, and everyone seemed very excited that she was going to keep on fighting. We then later found out in December that Greg hardy was going to be on that same card and that sparked a whole new conversation about both of them being on the same card and a lot of people wanted to talk to Rachel about it at that time. This was around the Toronto card. We reached out her. She didn't wanna talk about it. She went to focus on the flight. But here we are less than two. Away from the January nineteenth card, and she is very kind enough and gracious enough to be joining us. So let us go to the magic Skype and say Hello to Rachel Austin. Which Rachel how're you? I'm.
