TRAINING: A typical training day varies throughout the week, but mainly all my mornings are team practice at Alliance, and at night it’s fight specific, like drills/pads/conditioning/etc. My mornings have a variation of wrestling/striking/grappling. Mon-Thurs are two a days and Fri/Sat are one workout per day. Sunday is my off day.
When and why did you start training for fighting? When I was younger, I loved doing martial arts, and then I started wrestling and competing and everything just fell together. It was definitely the right path for me.
What ranks and titles have you held? Master of Jury Jiu Jitsu. BJJ Black Belt under Professor Don Richards & Master Caique
Do you have any heroes? God
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? My dreams are coming true and I’m one step closer to becoming a champion one day.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to Oakland Community College for a little bit, but then I stopped going there because of training.
What was your job before you started fighting? I worked at the Detroit Zoo
