When and why did you start training for fighting? Mike Ciesnolevicz, who was my roommate in college and is my best friend, called me and asked me what kind of shape I was in and if I would consider doing an amateur MMA fight in August of 2006. I have been involved in competition my whole life so I wanted to give it a shot. I mauled my first two opponents in under two minutes. I then began training specifically for MMA and had my first pro fight in October of 2006

What ranks and titles have you held?
4X state champion Wrestling, High School All-American (placed 4th).

Do you have any heroes? Dan Gable
