In an interview with MMA Junkie, Jessica Aguilar spoke about her first win in the UFC, ending her losing streak with a unanimous decision over Jodie Esquibel at UFC Fight Night 133. Here are highlights:

On her big win: “I haven’t felt this, a win, in I don’t know how long. It’s been over three years, so it’s amazing. I’m just happy to get that first victory in the UFC. I’m excited to get back and stay busy and keep it going.”

On overcoming the odds: “I’ve been through a little bit of adversity. But I always come back, and I come back stronger. Nothing’s ever going to make me give up. Entering the UFC, I had a couple injuries. I’ve had maybe about four or five surgeries since then. But I’m here, I got the victory, and I’m so excited.”

On her plans for the future: “I still love this. I’m still passionate about it. It still burns inside of me. Once I don’t have that inside of me, I’ll let it go. But I still want to fight. I still have that fight in me. Like I said, I’ve been through a couple of things, some injuries, and it’s been pretty rough, I’m not going to lie. But hey, nothing’s going to stop me. If I want to do something, I’m going to do it. I’ve just got to keep putting that hard work in, and I’ll keep getting those victories.”
