Biography

TRAINING: I can't give up my secrets, but I start out the morning strong with conditioning and I like to do a lot of mental work about my opponent. Then I take a break, eat, and rest. Then in the early afternoon I have pro practice and finish off the night strong with rolling around.

When and why did you start training for fighting? 2005. I just wanted to get in shape. My first trainer asked me if I wanted to compete, and I’m not one to ever say "no," so I took the fight. The rest is history.

What ranks and titles have you held? MMAXX Fights 155lb champion (Mexico),
Blue belt in BJJ

Do you have any heroes? None

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means everything to me - eight years of hard work has paid off.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No, went to art institute.
