BIOGRAPHY

Early Life

Sonia was born in Geneva, Switzerland of French descent. Both her father and older brother were involved in martial arts especially kickboxing, and this aided Sonia with her own transition into combat sport. She grew up a sporty girl, started dancing since the age of three, and played soccer and volleyball in middle school. She began training with her father in kickboxing while only 14 because she had to bicycle alone through a lonely part of the woods to and from school, and she had heard that there were “dirty men in the forest” who preyed on girls. While in college she became an intercollegiate women’s kickboxing champion, and afterwards she started feuding with a young man on campus – Pedro Tobler who was well trained in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The two often argued about which types of martial arts were superior and Sonia finally challenged him to a fight in private. It was rumoured that she lost badly in the fight, but the grappling led to sexual sparks that started the couple on a romantic relationship. (An alternative version told that Pedro dominated her during the fight and the sex they had was non-consensual. But afterwards Sonia accepted Pedro’s apology and they became partners.) While together Sonia learned from Pedro his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The couple decided to go separate ways in 2004, leaving Sonia to raise their baby daughter Nina as a single mother. In 2005, she came to know Stefanos Cosse and joined his underground fight club.

Fighting Style

Sonia is probably one of the smartest and most technically sound fighter in the IWFC. Her background in kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gave her incredible abilities to fight both in long range and in close distance. She has always worked incredibly hard and her awareness in the pit is second to none. But her weakness lies in strength training, or lack thereof. Several of her losses all came when she was overwhelmed by her opponent’s shear power.

Career in the IWFC

Sonia fought actively in Stefanos Cosse’s underground fight club from 2005 to 2008 and she quickly became one of the original members of the Hellcatz. In 2009 prior to the official launch of the IWFC she participated in the Queen of the Night tournament but lost to Réka Molnár of Hungary in the semifinal. Despite the setback, she started the 2009 season strong, winning three out of four fights. But then on September 20, a new blonde from Australia, Stephanie Rose, submitted her in a catfight and choked her out afterwards to earn a spot with the Hellcatz.

Sonia’s feud with Natasha Pavlova was the most memorable of her matches in 2010. She out-wrestled her in a match, shredded her apart in a catfight, and finally sexually dominated her in the pit, subduing for good this feisty blonde from Russia in three consecutive fights.

In 2011, Sonia began her season disastrously, losing two vicious catfights in a row. On April 24, she was pitted against a cocky Belén Zenere of Argentina who was making her IWFC debut. The veteran blonde took her frustration out on the rookie in one of the most brutal shootfights in history. After completely demolishing her opponent, Sonia continued her attack on the teary Argentinian post match before choking her unconscious outside the ring. (See “Payback’s a Bitch”) Near the end of the season, Sonia’s rivalry with Mexico’s Alondra Marín Flores was also of epic proportion. These two wrestled two matches, both nail-biters. While Sonia was able to defeat Alondra in their first encounter, she succumbed to the Latina in the return match. Post match, Alondra stripped Sonia nude and submitted the defiant blonde three more times before Sonia finally conceded to her superiority. For her valiant effort, Sonia was voted the hottest fighter of the year by the end of 2011.

While the Swiss fighter started her 2012 year strong, people perhaps only remembered her sexy nude wrestling match against the hated rival Tülin Karatay of Turkey late into the season. These two had fought twice previously, splitting the wins. On August 19, they faced each other one more time in a no-disqualification fight to settle the score once and for all. And when the dust settled, it was Sonia whose naked body draped lifelessly across the edge of the pit, after being smothered out cold under Tülin’s breasts.

Sonia’s 2013 season was also marred with disappointments, even her victory came ignominiously. On May 12 she was pitted against Belén Zenere again, with the Argentinian brunette still bearing a grudge for what the Swiss blonde did to her during her rookie fight. While Sonia gained the upper hand throughout the match, the fight was stopped when Belén ignored the referee’s repeated warnings and choke Sonia out illegally. She was promptly disqualified and a win was unceremoniously awarded to Sonia who laid unconscious on the mat. (See “Payback’s a Bitch”)

The end of 2013 shook the foundation of the Hellcatz when Gisele Medeiros defeated and ousted their queen Kaitlyn Langton. The result threw the most prestigious staple in the IWFC into turmoil, pitting members against one another in catfights and wrestling matches. Admist the chaos, Sonia managed to defeat Callisto Lucioni of Italy on June 1 in a shootfight to become the number one contender for the world title. (See “A Long Time Coming”) However, a few months later on September 7, she foolishly challenged Belén Zenere to a match, unable to forget how the Argentinian had cheated and embarrassed her during their fight in the previous year. Animosity ran deep between these two proud women, and Sonia even brought along her twelve-year-old daughter Nina to witness her ‘dismantling’ of the hated rival. But it was Sonia who got dismantled as she was breast smothered completely unconscious by Belén while Nina cried in horror and despair. (See “Mother Smother”) After that humiliating loss, Sonia decided to relinquish her number-one contender status to take some time away from combat sports.
