Biography

Thoughts on opponent, Mairbek Taisumov? I think people are sleeping on me.  He was scheduled to fight number 8-ranked Beneil Dariush, therefore they think it's a foregone conclusion he will win easily.  Mairbek is overconfident in his power, and they are going to be sadly mistaken.  I am going to climb the ranks this year.  2016 will be mine.
 
TRAINING: My daily training varies drastically based on the intensity of the workouts.  If workouts are on the lighter side and more technically focused, then I can have three sessions a day.  If I am sparring, then it may be just that, along with some movement and recovery to follow.  It’s six, seven days a week trying to become a better me every 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.
