Biography

TRAINING: My training is the same as every camp. I spar, grapple, hit mitts and do strength and conditioning.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training in martial arts at a very young age, first with karate at the age of five.  I have always loved fighting and it has always been my passion.  Something about it just captured my imagination from a very young age.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means the world to me. I have wanted to make my living fighting ever since I was a kid and I have wanted to be a UFC fighter ever since I first watched it, so to actually have my dreams come to fruition is an amazing feeling.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to community college, but I dropped out my sophomore year to pursue fighting full-time.
What was your job before you started fighting? I worked as a mascot for Papa John’s and as a dishwasher for a sushi restaurant.
