Pearl Gonzalez
MMA Fighter

Team USA Fighter Pearl Gonzalez, doesn’t set her sights low: She decided early in life that she is going to be a “Billionaire”. And if her success in the ring is any indication of her future business success, she will make it to the cover of Forbe’s.

“I started training with Bob Schirmer at Combat-Do when I was 11,” Pearl says. “A year later I made the Pankration team, and travelled with them to fight in Canada and Mexico. I trained consistently until I was about 16, when I took a break. I returned to training when I was 21, and I have not left the gym since. I still train at Combat-Do with Bob Schirmer, and also at LA Boxing with other MMA fighters.”

In her fighting career, Pearl has been a:

  • Cut Throat Absolute Champion
  • Kiama International Champion
  • Golden Glove Champion
  • Naga Championship fighter
  • Pankration Championship fighter
  • Midwest Jiu-Jitsu champion


  • Although Pearl considers herself “a strong ground fighter, a ‘take-down artist,’” she has been working on rounding out her fighting style. “I have been working really hard on my stand-up fighting and wrestling styles. I am working hard to become a complete fighter.”

    Pearl has been training long enough to know what she needs to do to take herself to the next level.

    “First and foremost,” she says, “I need to mentally prepare myself. And I need to train consistently, maintain a strict diet, and most importantly, I need to be in a positive state of mind.”
