15328311_1359508744079685_744831378_nCollins a native of Marked Tree, Arkansas began her fight career back in 2011 & wanted to follow in her brother (Herbert Morgan) footsteps. Collins first 6 amateur fights were very shaky only winning 2 out of 6 fights. Although she never had a real gym or coach to help help her improve her skills. She just wanted to fight & didn't make a difference who, what or where. She always had the fire it was just non existent during the earlier part of her career. It didn't even matter what weight she would fight at 155, 145 or whatever.
Little over 4 years ago she met up with Branson Fight Club owner/coach after a disappointing 1st round defeat via TKO vs Brittany Dugas at ShoFIGHT 22. Little did we know after Tilley & Collins spoke that night things would change dramatically for Collins career. Collins would travel to Branson from Marked Tree once a week to train until deciding to pack her bags and make the move permanently to Branson.

The 'Red Dragon' started breathing fire instantly racking up 5 straight wins all 1st round finishes, except one vs Nebraska native Stacey Lynn Marlow. She finished Stacey Lynn via TKO in the 2nd round. After her fifth straight under the Branson Fight Club banner, she went thru numerous of canceled matchups. It was obvious nobody wanted to fight the 'Red Dragon' whether it was at 125, 135 or even 145. Now it was time to take the next step & pursue her career on another level...Pro Ranks.

Currently, Collins has put up some phenomenal numbers as a pro going 5-1 in her first 6 professional fights. Her only blemish came at an Extreme Fight League back in June 2015 vs Jaymee Jones. ranked #20 in the world at that time. Collins literally took this fight on 18 hours notice & cut 10 lbs in the 18 hours. That loss would only enhance the fire even more.

The 'Red Dragon' would go on and claim victories in her next 4 fights, all in dominant fashion ending her opponents all in the 1st round & at 4 different promotions. We all knew from here Collins was well on her way to a big show. Collins was scheduled to fight a another world class flyweight in Nicdali Rivera-Calanoc in front of the Las Vegas crowd at Combate Americas. Unfortunately that fight fizzled out, she really wanted this fight.

15423587_1359509050746321_291495863_nIt didn't take long and Collins was signed to Invicta FC where she was to take on world class flyweight Christine Stanley. The fight was canceled due to an injury Collins had sustained during training. After Collins healed up she got the call shed been waiting on, fight for the Bellator FC organization. She would make her debut at Bellator 157: Dynamite 2 that featured Rampage Jackson vs Satoshi Ishii. Collins would matchup with Michelle Royer one of St. Louis's top prospect. Collins would dominate that fight defeating Royer in a dominate and very impressive fashion with a superior armbar ending the fight in just :48 seconds.
Since, Collins racked another victory at Fight Hard MMA vs Jamie Thorton a top prospect out of California ended this bout in the 1st round & under 2 minutes via submission choke.

Now three months later Collins get the call to fight in front of the Branson fans and world wide audience on the Resurrection Fighting Alliance 46 card vs Tennessee native, IFBB pro fitness competitor, HS Wrestling Coach & Purple Belt in Jiu Jitsu Mandy Polk (3-2). Folks you dont want miss this action. This whole card is stacked & will be pure excitement.
