Former TUF 20 Tryout Wins Seat in Congress



Former mixed martial arts fighter Sharice Davids scored a major political victory in her home state, as she was elected in Kansas’ 3rd Congressional District on Tuesday night.

Davids, who once tried out for “The Ultimate Fighter 20,” defeated David Yoder to capture the Kansas City seat, the first time a Democrat has won the spot in a decade. In the process, she became the first Native American woman to serve in Congress and the first openly gay woman to represent the state of Kansas, according to a report from the Kansas City Star.
