Biography

Training: I work hard every day mentally, physically, and spiritually in all different aspects to get stronger and better as a fighter


When and why did you start training for fighting? I grew up loving competition......I played as many sports as my mom would let me.....I loved to watch the UFC and PRIDE fighting videos when I was younger and I would try and imitate it with anyone who would join me....when I got old enough (17 or so) to make my own decisions, I went to local fight gyms and trained from time to time......I got beat up a lot but loved the challenge......from then on I progressed and tried fighting professionally.......I didn’t know it was going to turn out fruitful and be what it is today, but I was blessed and I love my job

What ranks and titles have you held?  None yet worth mentioning

Do you have any heroes? Jesus, soldiers like my brother, Scott Wiman, who is a Green Beret, and my family.  My favorite fighters are Cheick Kongo, Thales Leites, Chuck Liddell, Keith Jardine, Forrest Griffin and Georges St-Pierre.

What is your favorite technique? Any knockout or submission

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It’s indescribable. When I heard about it I couldn’t breathe for a long time. It was so exciting and so surreal because it’s been my dream that I'd had for a long time.......I thank God for it often.......it will be a highlight in my life.

What was your job before you started fighting? I had so many jobs growing up, from coffee shops to ranch work....I've also helped teach grappling and kickboxing.
