About Adaire

Hi! My name is Adaire. As an introvert, talking about myself is not my favorite thing to do... but I will give you a quick summary so you can learn a little about me! First and foremost, I am a Woman of Faith. There is nothing I appreciate more than family, my close relationships and being a mother. I'm a Texas native, the oldest of 3 siblings and we were born into a loving and forward-thinking family of successful entrepreneurs. We learned from a young age that whatever reality you want, you can create with belief in yourself, persistence and hard work. I was taught the only barriers you create, are in your mind! That may explain why I have so many titles in different business ventures. And believe it or not, I enjoy them all! For the world's sake, I give my professional titles but my personal belief is; What you do, does not define who you are. It's just a gift you have to give that allows you to reach the rest of the world. :) 

Back Story

My involvement in MMA began over 10 years ago wanting to learn self-defense as an effort to gain power through healing from trauma I experienced. Through martial arts, I unexpectedly gained confidence, strength & skill becoming a competitive athlete. By training with professional fighters and coaches through the years, my knowledge and love for the sport blossomed giving me the foundation for my combat journey.

Since my start in MMA Media in February of 2022 covering local fights in Texas, I was shortly hired by Fansided MMA as a Journalist covering Dana White Contender Series the same year. I made unbelievable headway which landed me main roles on podcasts/shows with top fighters and gave me a seat as an analyst, commentating Live Pay-per-view events, not realizing that placed me as the first African-American female to commentate in MMA. Through persistence, I even gained notice and mentorship through ESPN's UFC analysts Din Thomas, Laura Sanko & reporter, Megan Olivi, supporting and showing me the ropes. I am currently the Moderator and Co-Producer with my significant otherJamahal Hill on our new analyst show, War Council based out of Las Vegas.

"War Council is a new fight analyst show hosted by UFC former light-heavyweight Champion, Jamahal Hill. The show covers upcoming PPV UFC cards and features special guests or top 5 ranked athletes every episode. Though the show has only been running for less than 6 months, it has already gained attention from sports networks. Other analysts and spectators are calling it 'The next big MMA show that belongs on ESPN'."
