BIOGRAPHY

Early Life

Princess Tülin Karatay Osmanoğlu is a descendant of the royal Osmanoğlu family of Turkey. When the Ottoman empire fell in 1922, members of the Imperial family were exiled from the new republic. And in 1973 the male members were finally allowed to return to their country, including Tülin’s father. Tülin was born in Ankara, Turkey as the eldest child to the family. A tomboy growing up, she particularly enjoyed Yağlı güreş, the traditional Turkish oil wrestling. Despite her smallish built she participated and won many competition during her high school years. For her undergrad studies, her wealthy parents sent her abroad to the University of Foxton where she eventually stepped into the world of female combat.

Fighting Style

Tülin Karatay is one of the smallest female fighters in the IWFC. But in quoting Mark Twain, she often says that what matters is “not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” A big heart in a petit frame, Tülin surprised many of her opponents with her tenacity and well-honed wrestling skills. But while the oil in Turkish wrestling could sometimes neutralized her opponents’ size advantage, in the IWFC size does matter and quite often Tülin was overcome by her larger and stronger opponents who could take her out of her game.
