Biography

TRAINING: A day of training for me starts off at The Pit, sparring with the fight team, bag work, and mitts with The Pit Master. Then the next training session is a jiu-jitsu/wrestling workout at SLO Kickboxing. Last workout would be strength and conditioning over at Athlon Elite.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started after high school. I love the competition, and the friends I’ve made

What ranks and titles have you held? None

Do you have any heroes? Mother and father and all my training partners

What is your favorite technique? Double leg, pick them up, run across the cage and drop them

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means everything to me to be fighting in the UFC. It will be an honor and exciting to be representing myself, my team, and my family on such a great card.

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

What was your job before you started fighting? I am Chuck Liddell’s assistant
