Biography

TRAINING: My day starts around noon in the gym.
12-1 - Kickbox
1-2 - Technical work on a specific skill. Boxing/Wrestling
5-7 - Grapple/BJJ
7-8 – Stand-up / Mitts with Alex Zarate
I usually go to the gym around 1AM - 3AM to just get my head right, run and have time for myself.
 
When and why did you start training for fighting? I first began training when I was 14, mainly for the fact it was the only sport I didn’t get kicked out of. It was a way for me to work out some of my anger and next thing I knew I turned pro when I was 16 and I found my calling in life.
 
What ranks and titles have you held? King of the Cage middleweight belt, brown belt in BJJ

Do you have any heroes? None

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Fighting in the UFC means everything to me. I’ve spent the last eight years of my life inside a gym preparing for this moment in my life.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No

What was your job before you started fighting? I turned pro when I was 16. I’ve always been a fighter.
