The swimwear model tweeted this:

Here she is in action kicking ass:

Kang, who suffered with anorexia in the past, says she now feels comfortable in her own skin through, thanks to fighting:

She told People:

I got a lot bigger, I gained muscled, I have definition, I have abs. I can do things with my body that I never thought I could do in terms of athleticism and fitness. As I developed and progressed in the sport, everything that has happened to my body, I’ve embraced it and welcomed it. The self-love and appreciation that I learned from Muay Thai coupled with booking Sports Illustrated gave me confidence.
