TRAINING: There are no typical training days, but when I'm not traveling, it’s two a days featuring a strength and conditioning or mitt work session in the morning, working during the midday, then another skills session at night, either sparring, MMA rounds, or BJJ.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I began fighting during my senior year at Texas A&M University because I missed wrestling. It started as a hobby and grew into a passion. Eventually it became a career.
What ranks and titles have you held? BJJ brown belt under Jarrod Clontz, Legacy Fighting Championships Middleweight Champion
Do you have any heroes? Jesus Christ, Jang Ming-Chul, Ron Paul
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It is the fulfillment of a childhood dream, but more than that it is a new adventure and a new challenge that can help provide for my family as I approach marriage in the next few months.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Texas A&M, BA Finance
