Biography

TRAINING: Training starts at 6:30am with BJJ. Strength and conditioning is after that at 8am. Then I rest for a bit before heading to Muay Thai or Boxing. Sprints and runs are thrown in there every now and then. I end the day with MMA or BJJ training every day. BJJ is a big part of my training. I try to get a good six hours of training in a day, 6 days per week.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training for fighting when I was 19 years old and went pro two years later at 21 years old

What ranks and titles have you held? I hold a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Bruno Malfacine and I held the Cage Warriors Fighting Championships Featherweight title

Do you have any heroes? Honestly, I have a lot of people that I look up to, but two unsung heroes that I have are my wife, Melisa and my Mom, Abby. Melisa has been my first and biggest fan, she is the one that urged me to take my first professional fight and has supported our dream every step of the way. We have been together since high school and she always brings out the best in me. She is also a great mother to our son, Anthony. My Mom worked hard and raised five children with my Dad. I thought she was super strict but I now understand that she taught me right from wrong. She and my Dad exhibited a great work ethic that has helped me to this day.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It's a dream come true. I have been chasing this dream for 10 years now. I don't just want to fight for the UFC. I want to be successful.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to the University of Central Florida. I got my degree in elementary education.

What was your job before you started fighting? I've had all sorts of jobs from being a cart pusher at Walmart to teaching kindergarten and instructing kids in BJJ. I still work at a Behavioral Hospital and teach BJJ.
