TRAINING: I switched it up a little for this camp. I'm down in south Florida training with the Blackzilians at the Jaco Hybrid Training Center. Hard team practices every morning, then technique, strength, and conditioning work in the evenings.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I wrestled my whole life and loved competing, so as soon as I graduated, I wanted to continue combat sports. I always loved ways to get aggression out.
What ranks and titles have you held? Ring of Combat welterweight title.
Do you have any heroes? Fighters like GSP and Frankie Edgar always motivated me to take my training to the next level.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Yes, I went to Nassau Community College, then transferred to Farmingdale State College, where I got my bachelors degree in business management.
What was your job before you started fighting? I worked for my uncle doing heating and air conditioning.
Specific accomplishments in pro competition? All of my fights have ended in stoppages, and only three fights left the first round.
Ranks in any martial arts styles: Purple Belt in BJJ
