UFC 247 viewership in the Ark-La-Tex should receive a nice boost thanks to our golden girl, Andrea Lee.

Let me start that I've been around Andrea a few times and she is simply the very best. Not only is she a supreme athlete and fighter, but she is also one of the nicest people I've ever met. I'm so happy for her and can't want to see her career play out in front of our very eyes.

This weekend, her journey in the UFC continues with a match-up against Lauren Murphy at UFC 247. KGB is one of the most marketable fighters currently on the UFC roster, and a big win on a major pay-per-view should sky-rocket her within the UFC. She’s 3-1 through her first four UFC fights, and has won 10 of her 11 career professional wins in major promotions. She's currently ranked #8 in the UFC's flyweight division.

UFC 247 takes place on Saturday, February 8th, live from the Toyota Center in Houston, TX.
