Who I am and why I'm here

Perhaps you may remember but years ago just before Invicta FC came onto the fight scene, I was part of a team of three that we're trying to get an all women's fight promotion company off the ground called Girlfight Global. The name later changed to The WMMA because of a threatening lawsuit for trademark infringement. It was an exciting yet doggie dog time. Across the country a buzz was stirring and there were others scrambling to be the first to help elevate and promote women's mixed martial arts and bring it to the forefront to what it is today...a legitimate sport. We had numerous trials and tribulations, and in the end, I was the only one of my team left standing during that time. I was disappointed that our quest to start a promotion was unsuccessful... but, thankfully, I was left with the blog www.thewmma.com and Facebook fanpage www.facebook.com/ILOVEWMMA.

I kept the blog going writing on and off but I wanted to do more. I still had a passion to help female warriors in the combative arts so when a friend asked if I wanted to start a podcast I jumped at the idea. We started the Evolve WMMA Podcast back in 2017.  My friend did all the technical behind the scenes stuff. Something I had no idea how to do. I did all the research on fighters and interviews. After publishing 15 episodes, sadly I found myself on my own, having no idea how to edit or publish this podcast. My weekly episodes were no longer getting done, nor published...I felt like I was failing again!

About a year later I took a course on how to Broadcast Yourself with London Real's Brian Rose..(which I still owe $$ on) AND Yes the Evolve WMMA Podcast was relaunched and I've published weekly episodes ever since. I'm very proud of it!

I'm Shelley Devine the founder & host of the Evolve WMMA Podcast & Blog. The Evolve WMMA Podcast is currently the ONLY podcast that solely features female warriors in combative sports! As the name Evolve WMMA implies, I want to work with promoting fighters and interact with fight fans as women's mixed martial arts progresses.

Your pledge will contribute to the expense of putting the time in of fighter research, & producing this exciting show! Long term contributions will go toward travel to guest fighters gyms/ weigh ins/ events  to do face to face chats, podcast and video editing, equipment, and other production costs. And ultimately being able to sponsor fighters as they prepare for their fights.

I've been fortunate to be able to create over 30 podcasts but I'm still just starting out. I want to continue to grow and expand, whether it be building my team, offering  prizes for a lucky girl to become a guest co-host on the podcast and even meet one of the fighters or helping woman in need around the globe. The ways to grow this is really unlimited and having the input of supportive fans like you is the only way to build this!!

The Evolve WMMA Podcast features women who go against conventional thinking to pursue their dreams. They are warriors, who've gained respect by taking the reigns in a male dominated arena to move forward with progressive change. These woman have inspiring stories to tell filled with real life joy, passion, blood, sweat and tears!

The building of EVOLVE WMMA Podcast is to Inspire, empower, and unleash excellence within a new generation of female warriors as they rise & evolve into the best possible version of themselves through the power of mixed martial arts
