Biography

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training on the 12th of February, 2015, because I needed the money.

Do you have any heroes? My parents

What would it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means a lot for me to be able to compete in the biggest promotion in the world.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I wasn’t able to finish college due to my mother’s ALS diagnosis.

What was your job before you started fighting? I was working as a bouncer and cook before I started fighting.

Favorite grappling technique: Guillotine

Favorite Striking technique: Head kick

  • Pro since 2016
  • Four wins by KO
  • Two first round finish
  • Origin of nickname: “This name originated from my forefathers, who happened to be hunters. They led wild animals into ambushes. Due to their brave, fierce and violent behavior I decided to go by ‘Savage.’”
  • Mini-bio – “I stopped college due to my mother being diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease in 2014. I had to get at least two jobs to help support her and my older brother, who suffers from autism. Life has been one great journey so far, and now being able to fight in the UFC would help me pay off my mother’s medical bills even faster. I thank God for bringing me this far.”
