In an interview with MMA Junkie, Lauren Mueller said that her UFC debut win against Shana Dobson at UFC on FOX 29 proves that she belongs. Here are highlights:

On her win: “I am happy with (my performance). This is my UFC debut and I worked extremely hard for this. When I got in there it felt extremely enjoyable to me. I felt like I belonged in there.”

On getting more experience: “I felt amazing. This is everything I’ve been working hard for. I hope I gave everyone a show and everyone enjoyed it. I enjoyed it. Absolutely. … It was so much better than what I could have ever imagined. Hearing the fans and the crowd and your loved ones cheering for you. It was amazing.”

On who she wants to fight next: “There’s no names (to call out). This is a new division so I’m not really sure where everyone is ranked and how that’s happening yet. For me, I’m going to train for whoever has the belt, so that’s my ultimately goal. So right now whoever is going to get me closer to that goal is who I want to fight.”
