TRAINING: Morning session of running/ weightlifting, Evening session of Technique and Cardio
When and why did you start training for fighting? I worked with a guy who was a professional mixed martial artist. I watched some of his videos one day at work and was hooked.

I had my first training session about three years ago and I completely fell in love with the sport.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? AA at Gainesville State College. Working on BA at University of Georgia
What was your job before you started fighting? I work as a merchandiser for Pepsi, a middle school wrestling coach, and I am also a student.
