TRAINING: Twice a day for six weeks, emphasis on the sprawl and brawl
When and why did you start training for fighting? I’ve always been competitive my whole life. Whether it was a footrace or a video game I was going to beat you at it. I played the conventional team sports as a kid but I became frustrated with the team aspect. The fact that someone else could screw up and label me a loser did not sit well with me, so I gave those up in high school and started wrestling. My brother Cole and I would always watch fighting and were interested in it. I liked the one on one aspect of it so after wrestling was over I had my first fight.
