Training: In the morning it's running and lifting. Afternoon is team training, and at night it's strength and conditioning.

What ranks and titles have you held? PXC Welterweight Champion, Motor One Jiu-Jitsu Tournament - Open Class Champion, black belt in Tae Kwon Do
Do you have any heroes? None
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Fighting in the UFC has been my goal for the past few years. It's pretty much all I thought about and what I've trained for. Now that I've achieved it, I'm looking forward to bigger and better things.
