‘Top Model’ Winner Won’t Fight For Career

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Top Model winner McKey Sullivan wants to be a knockout model, not get knocked out!

Sullivan won America’s Next Top Model this past Wednesday (Nov. 19), but she’s still figuring out a way to save face in the beauty biz – literally.

The 20-year-old is also a Mixed Martial Arts fighter but has to tone down her tough hobby so it doesn’t affect her money- making mug.

Luckily, she practices a form of fighting called Pankration which has “no face shots.”

She explains, “I’ll still wrestle and train, but I won’t compete anymore due to the high risk of injury. I want to keep my muscles, but I can’t get hurt if I want to model!”

Sullivan believes her competitive “fighter’s mentality” helped her win the title on Top Model and gave her confidence.

Her muscles helped her strike complex poses for long periods of time at photo shoots and her drive to win the Top Model match ultimately got her to the end.
