What is your favorite technique
? I love to stand up and exchange, but I also really enjoy fighting on the ground too.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? My team and I are very excited to fight in the UFC.  I'm training very hard to make my presence known in the U.S. and the rest of the world.
