Lauren Murphy is a professional American female mixed martial artist who is the inaugural Invicta Fighting Championships Bantamweight Champion. She is currently undefeated. Murphy said about starting martial arts: "I took my son to a Jiu Jitsu class in late 2009, and I took the class with him to encourage him. I fell in love with it and started going all the time. I began training MMA about 3 months later, and took my first pro fight 3 months after that. I did not have any amateur fights." Murphy is currently the #9-ranked 135-pound female MMA fighter in the world according to the Unified Women's MMA Rankings, and the highest-ranked fighter in her division who is not currently in the UFC.
