Biography

Training: 8am - pre breakfast jog; 11-12:30 - conditioning (focusing on speed and footwork); 3:30-5pm - technique and sparring. Watching top level boxing, kickboxing, grappling videos at night, along with meditating and preparing my mind for battle.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I've been talking about MMA since I was in the seventh grade.  The first day I walked into Team Quest was the first day I started training full-time to become a pro fighter. 
 
What ranks and titles have you held? Sportfight, WEC, and Gladiator Challenge.
 
Do you have any heroes? No.
 
What is your favorite technique? Putting the stamp on kids!
 
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It's a lifetime achievement. It's definitely one of my lifelong dreams coming true.
 
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No.
 
What was your job before you started fighting? Painting and construction.
