Biography

TRAINING: I like to keep things consistent, and this training camp is no different.  I live spar two to three times a week, train BJJ once or twice a week, wrestle once or twice a week, do stand-up technique once or twice a week, and do strength and conditioning three times a week.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I got into MMA in May of 2005, because I wanted to compete again and I was bored with going to work and coming home everyday.

Do you have any heroes? My parents and my siblings, they are all amazing people.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? To me, it means I really need to start working even harder.  I'm fighting for the organization that I have always wanted to, and I plan on staying for a long while.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to Virginia Tech, but never completed my degree.

What was your job before you started fighting? I did construction with my father and brother.

Specific accomplishments in pro competition?  I have held five different titles in organizations on the East Coast.

Ranks in any martial arts styles: Black belt in BJJ

Favorite grappling technique: Any choke

Favorite Striking technique: Straight left cross

Most common misconception people have about him: Everybody thinks that because I’m from New Jersey that I’m from the Jersey Shore. I’m from the hills of New Jersey! I live two hours away from the Jersey Shore.

Just Call Me ‘Brewmaster’: At the moment I’m obsessed with home-brewing beer and wine. I’m basically obsessed with self-sufficiency and doing things for yourself. Some of the beers I’ve made have been pretty good – and the wine, too. I’ve had to dump a few down the drain because they weren’t too hot. It’s not really that hard. It’s basically just following directions. I made a raspberry with a little vodka. I call it The Raspberry Ninja because it will sneak up on you if you’re not careful. I enjoy it. It’s a couple hours here and there and then the yeast does all the work.

Easy On The Ear: I listen to a lot of country music when I’m home. I’m on a Brooks and Dunn kick right now. But I gotta be honest: I’m a pretty big Neil Diamond fan. I don’t know what happened but I’ve liked his music since I was a kid.
When I’m working out, though, I listen to more hard rock, AC/DC, stuff like that.

Down With The Sweetness: The Chicago Bears were my favorite team growing up. I was always a big fan of Walter Payton. He was a tough guy who went out, did his job and kept his mouth shut. That’s the way my parents raised me and my siblings. Anybody can talk the talk. Walking the walk is the tough part.

The Handyman Can: The last book I read was “Everyday Survival: Why Smart People Do Stupid Things.” It’s about how even intelligent people get complacent with their environment. It’s about adapting to new situations. I’m always trying to do things for myself rather than having to pay for it. It’s because I grew up with a father who fixed everything. So I’ve always got a million different projects going on at one time.
