Biography

TRAINING:This fight was taken on short notice so the emphasis has been on sparring and cardio. I train all year round so technique is a non-issue. It is being in the best shape possible when it's time to step in the cage. A typical day would be sparring followed by an ice bath and then some technique and speed training later in the day or sprint work followed by technique and speed work later in the day.
 
When and why did you start training for fighting? I began fighting after my wrestling career ended. My striking coach Joe Panariello's son was best friends with my youngest brother Bradley. When I would see him he would ask me if I ever thought about doing MMA. I was hesitant, but eventually I agreed to try a few stand-up mitt lessons with him. As soon as I punched and kicked my first Thai pad I knew this is what made me happy and the rest is history.
 
What ranks and titles have you held? Two-time Suffolk County wrestling finalist, Suffolk County wrestling champion, New York State high school wrestling champion, JUCO National Finalist 165 lbs, 5th place at D-III National Wrestling Championships 174 lbs, Amateur Kickboxing Champion, Ring of Combat 155 lbs Champion
 
Do you have any heroes? There are a few men in wrestling and MMA that I look up to and seek to emulate as much as possible: Cael Sanderson, Frankie Edgar, Jon Jones, Kyle Dake. These men have exhibited greatness inside and out of their respective sports and I hold them in very high esteem.
 
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? This means the world to my family and I. I quit my regular career a few years back in order to pursue a career as a UFC fighter. The UFC and its belt have been my goal for a long time and I am extremely grateful for this amazing opportunity.
 
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I have attended multiple colleges. Unfortunately I have over 100 credits but have yet to obtain my degree as a result of a change in majors. I will eventually complete my degree later down the line because it is something that I would like to have. But currently I do not have my college degree.
 
What was your job before you started fighting? Before I changed over to full-time fighting I worked for the sole Budweiser distributor on Long Island at Clare Rose. I made a lot of lifelong friends in the years I spent there and I will never forget those guys, who continue to support me. They call themselves the Bud guys.
