Biography

When and why did you start training for fighting?  I fought before I ever trained. I went to go watch my friend (Robert Emerson) fight and was sitting in the stands hanging out. When they announced over the loud speaker that they needed someone to fight, I volunteered and fought Nam Phan. I think we were both maybe 17 or so, but I had no idea what I was doing, other then a lot of street fights and mental toughness. So right off the bat I landed a head kick that dropped him, and when I went in to finish him I got caught in an armbar. I had never even seen a move like that before, but long story short I was approached by Chris Brennan after to come train at his gym and I did. After that I have trained on and off ever since.
