Rakoczy made her professional MMA debut in October 2009. In five fights, she amassed a record of 1 win, 3 losses and one no contest.
The Ultimate FighterEdit
Rakoczy faced Revelina Berto in the elimination fight to get into the house. Despite both women being boxers, the majority of the fight was contested on the ground, where Rakoczy won via an armbar submission in the second round.
During her first tournament fight in the house, Rakoczy faced veteran Roxanne Modafferi. After losing the first round with it mostly being contested on the ground and struggling for takedowns, Rakoczy landed multiple punches on the feet in the second round. After several heavy blows landed and a slam against Modafferi's armbar attempt Rakoczy won via TKO.
In the semifinals, Rakoczy faced Raquel Pennington and won the fight via unanimous decision after three rounds.
Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit
Rakoczy faced Julianna Peña in the finals on November 30, 2013 at The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale. She lost the bout via TKO in the final seconds of the first round.
Rakoczy made her return to the UFC Octagon on April 25, 2015 in her strawweight debut against Valérie Létourneau at UFC 186 in Montreal, Quebec on April 25, 2015. She lost the fight via unanimous decision and was subsequently released from the UFC.
