TRAINING: A typical day of training for me is always fun. I'll go for a run at 8:30, then take Muay Thai and grappling class from 10 -12:30. Intense cardio in the middle of the day then another 2 hours of wrestling, Muay Thai or grappling at night
Thoughts on opponent, Michael McDonald? He’s a very well-rounded opponent and I’m gonna stand and throw with him, so it’s gonna be a good fight.
