Pearl Gonzalez is a fiercely determined fighter who has had one professional MMA fight after a successful amateur career. She’s tough and can kick you ass, and sweet and funny all at the same time. I’ve shot Pearl a few times now. She’s great to work with since she can do things like kicking and jumping that other people can’t. She also looks great doing about anything. We shot these in the original Sears Tower on the West Side. Pearl walked in and said, “I like this place. It’s gritty and real, like me.” I agree.
