UFC star Mariya Agapova has started tattooing to earn money when she is not fighting. Currently competing in the UFC Flyweight division, Agapova last fought against Gillian Robertson at UFC Fight Night: Sandhagen vs. Song and had suffered a submission loss.
She currently holds a professional MMA record of 10-4 to her name and had made her UFC debut back in 2020 when she fought Hanna Cifers at UFC on ESPN: Eye vs. Calvillo.
After this, Agapova suffered a loss to Shana Dobson before bouncing back against Sabina Mazo. As things stand, she is now 2-3 in the UFC and will be looking to bounce back soon.
While her in-ring return is still in the works, Agapova revealed that she is working as a tattoo artist to earn money when she is not fighting. She also noted that she has been able to continue without sponsors for two years now.
“You can see the statement from Agapova below. I want to dispel all doubts about the end of a fighter's career. I became a tattoo artist in the first place to support my career in the UFC. have been living without sponsors for two years now. And for more than six months, I've been working in clubs at night. I think being a tattoo artist will make me more money than being a security guard at a club. And I would also like to sleep at night, while preparing for fights. So only now, half price piercings and free tattoos!
You come to me with your idea or sketch. I do tattoos for you. If you like it, you can tip me (as much as you want). And if you suddenly do not like it, you can come later, in a couple of months. And I will either fix it for you or cover it up for free. Appointments are available. Write to me direct, or contact me at the telegram channel via the link in bio. The photo shows my work.”
