A good friend (Jayson Werth – Phillies) asked me to fight in his inaugural promotion. I agreed and the rest is history.

What ranks and titles have you held? I’m just a nobody

Do you have any heroes? Those who make the world better everyday in whichever manner they can.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It is a fulfillment of a quest.  I continually test myself and this is another hurdle that I decided to conquer.

What was your job before you started fighting
? I am the CEO of EDEN – Engineered & DEsigned Nutrition.  It’s a sports nutrition company.

If any, list ranks in any martial arts styles: Shotokan

Favorite grappling technique: Ummmmm, standing up from the guard

Favorite striking technique: The punch in the face.
