Biography

TRAINING: I start the morning off with some fresh squeezed scorpion venom and coffee. I then walk 47 miles through barbed wire with a rattlesnake for a necktie to get the blood moving. Later in the day I fight a couple crazed chimpanzees with skill saws attached to their arms for a few rounds to simulate Ben's fighting style.


When and why did you start training for fighting? Since my 18th birthday, with the goal of being a professional fighter. To fight no rules...

What ranks and titles have you held? Former UFC heavyweight champion, 10th King of Pancrase, No Gi BJJ World Champion 2009.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? A return to a conquered kingdom. To once and finally put the Octagon under the reign of my iron fists.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to college, but did not finish. I decided to wait until after fighting career ended.

What was your job before you started fighting? Sold guns
