One of our Nutrié Elite Athletes, Jelena Mrdjenovich, is known for having a very unforgiving left hook, one that made her opponent face plant instantly in this 2013 fight:

If you’ve never seen it before, don’t be surprised if you gasp at how quickly her opponent, Olivia Gerula, goes down.
Every fighter has his or her trademark move, one that makes sports audiences cringe in empathetic pain. Ronda Rousey has her arm bar, and Jelena has devastating knockouts. I mean, you can hear Olivia’s face hit the mat.
Jelena is a Canadian boxer and WBC featherweight world champion. Though she started off as a basketball player for University of Alberta, it was a torn ACL that put her out and gave her the time to watch boxing. It caught her attention so much that she decided to give it a try after her injury healed and what do you know? She excelled in the sport and she dominates.
Jelena participated in Nutrié’s Texas Takeover where she had the opportunity to interact with guests as well as participate in the presentation along with her fellow Elite Athletes. She shares that joining the Nutrié family is helping her keep up with her workout and fitness regimen, especially while she travels. And as we all know, maintaining a specific weight is crucial for these athletes, as they would hate to be disqualified from fights after all of the training they do.
