Biography

TRAINING: A typical day of training depends on the day, but it's pretty much the same as all of my other camps - sparring on Monday, Tuesday and Friday mornings with Hawaii Elite MMA, S&C on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons at Fitness Ranes, on Wednesday morning I drill with my head/striking coach Charles Kipilii, and on Thursday mornings I have wrestling coached by Rylan Lizares and on Tuesday and Thursday nights I have private sessions with Rylan and jiu-jitsu at Gracie Technics afterwards.  On Saturday morning I have fight simulations with Charles and on Wednesday and Saturdays I have fascial stretching with Sunny Ko which is a new addition.  However, the biggest change in my camp is probably that I've started eating an actual breakfast. Who would've thought that breakfast actually mattered.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training in martial arts at a very young age, first with karate at the age of five.  I have always loved fighting and it has always been my passion.  Something about it just captured my imagination from a very young age.

What ranks and titles have you held?
None

Do you have any heroes? Russell Doane, Ron Jhun, BJ Penn, Fedor Emelianenko, Jose Aldo

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means the world to me. I have wanted to make my living fighting ever since I was a kid and I have wanted to be a UFC fighter ever since I first watched it, so to actually have my dreams come to fruition is an amazing feeling.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to community college, but I dropped out my sophomore year to pursue fighting full-time.

What was your job before you started fighting? I worked as a mascot for Papa John’s and as a dishwasher for a sushi restaurant.

X-1 World events 135lb amateur champion, Destiny MMA fight of the night winner
