Biography

TRAINING: I train seven days a week - sometimes three times in one day sometimes once a day. I train often but I train smart and still allow my body to recover. I mix in a lot of crossfit, strength and conditioning, elastic band and balance work, and flexibility training on top of my technique, sparring, and pad work. I'm training all the angles for this fight so I can have the competitive edge anywhere.

Thoughts on opponent, Aaron Phillips?
I think Aaron Phillips is a good fighter all around. It's going to be fun to fight a fellow southpaw.  There are some major holes in his style which I intend to exploit.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?
It means a great deal to me. I have been fighting to reach this level for seven years. I have been through many trials and hardships to get here, so it is truly gratifying to fight for the UFC.
