A Beaconsfield horse groomer hopes to make the move from the stable to the cage as she aims to be part of the MMA.

Louise Bennett, who is originally from Islington in London but looks after the animals in Bucks, is pinning her hopes on winning a Mixed Martial Arts talent search contest, ‘MMA TV’s Find A Star’.

The deadline to enter the competition was on Friday, December 18 and if successful, she will be one of 20 winners who will take part in a 10-week training programme at their local gym.

Once that has been completed, the winners will then participate in specially made bootcamps, after which the 'Find A Star' champions will be crowned.

She said: “I’ve been training in MMA for about a year and was considering my next move, so this competition is great timing for me.

“My job is very physical so I’m tired at the end of the day, but I really enjoy MMA because I feel I can express myself as it’s about discipline, dedication, and determination.

“I hope I’m shortlisted because I’m ready to improve my fighting and get my foot in the industry door.”
