Van Buren grew up in Gilroy, California with her mother. Due to domestic sexual molestation she was a victim of in her teens, she moved out of home at the age of 13. She ended up moving in with her uncle – Strikeforce veteran Anthony Figueroa – at whose gym she started training kickboxing, later picking up other disciplines. She attended and graduated from Gilroy High School where she played soccer and wrestled her sophomore year.
Fighter Trivia
Van Buren's moniker "Tha Bull" or "The Bull" was coined by her grandfather when she was young as she used to running around with such attitude that her grandfather called her "El Torito", "The baby bull" in Spanish. Brianna and his husband Lukas Fortino got married in October 2020, and she officially began using Fortino as her last name also in the UFC. The pair welcomed their first son Jackson in 2021.
