When Miriam - of unknown ethnicity - was at her lowest, she separated from her boyfriend. Also, she split with her coach and gym. Making situation more saddening, only one of her teammate visited her during her recovery.
While trying to regain her confidence and start again, she sprained her left lateral collateral ligament as well. Only, after that, she found out she had a lesion on her meniscus. Her treatment cost $30,000.
But her good friend, also a comedian, Joe Rogan helped out with the procedure and also the required transportation. Going through the process of stem cell treatment, she began to focus on the recovery and a new career.
Now in 2019, she claims she still can be a champion despite her age. In her own words, she doesn't want to leave her beloved sports due to an injury but, only under her own terms.
Miriam is engaged to her lovely fiance Manolo Hurricane Hernandez.
She made the matter clear on her Instagram post on 3 March 2019. Displaying a mutual relation between the two, the funny video showcased the plutonic bond Manalo and Miriam shared.

Also, any details on how the two met each other is a mystery, but since her new boyfriend/fiance is an MMA coach, chances are the two met during a workout session or gym.
